I have a student in my class who started the year off a little rough. He had a tendency to hit, bite, whatever. I put the fear in him one day, and he has been wonderful ever since. He is quiet, keeps his hands to himself, and overall he is very sweet! His mother, however, feels differently. She has nothing but problems with him at home. He argues with both his parents and gets violent with his mother. He won't listen to her and tells her she knows nothing. She called me today to let me know he will be staying with his grandparents for a little while, because she doesn't know what to do anymore. I feel terrible for her, because I do not see these behaviors at school. Any ideas?? I spoke with the sped teacher, and she is looking into a good psychologist or behavioral specialist. She says she has tried everything...rewards for positive behavior, time-outs, and even spankings. These things have not been working at home. Any ideas?! Thanks.
