Hi! I am a first year K teacher. I have a room FULL of attention seekers. I have 3 girls who complain every day that something is "hurting" and they are "sick." I have tried every strategy in the book, ignoring, saying they are too sick for recess, listening/comforting them, nothing works and it gets soo bad they will burst into tears and disrupt the class. I've written one mom about it politely last week and she was just like oh she has a cold, I will monitor the situation. I wrote her again today asking if she was still sick as she is STILL complaining of sickness and crying and disrupting class. I really don't know what to tell theses parents politely that their child is causing me major problems. Then because I am having to deal with the criers (otherwise they will just sit and cry and not do work) my behavior problems will start to cry over something dumb (saying someone called them a name, etc.) just so they can have their "attention" too. I have 1 boy who is a major issue. He basically is ANNOYING. He will call out answers and not raise hand, make comments out loud, bang on things, play with other students when supposed to be working, play with materials, not walk in line correctly, not follow directions, Basically anything he can do to be "cute" and "funny" to his classmates he does it. Parents are supportive and want to be emailed every day in detail about what he does. I do this, and yet the behavior does not change. Last week I even asked if there was something I could do in the classroom to support better behavior for him and I was told "we set goals with him at home." He liked to be a helper and I try to give him jobs but he does not do them responsibly so I have to take the job away. He again causes extra problems for me because he is a popular fellow and the other boys want to be accepted by him so they do what he does to a minimal degrees. I have a class bathroom, but we take frequent bathroom breaks so I normally do not let my kids use the class one, however if I let a good reliable student use it who says they have to go and we do not have a break coming up, I will then get a behavior problem pipe in "I have to go too!!" When I tell them no, they will start doing the pee dance and crying saying they have to go bad. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you!
