    MISBEHAVING AT NURSERY SCHOOL

    It seems my 4 1/2 yr old has recently started teasing and hitting his friends at nursery school. The teachers & I have told him before about this. I even took away his TV privelages, yet he still does it. Is this a phase he is going through? How can I get him to stop this kind of behavior?

    Some children are more strong willed than others.... I would suggest that you learn some parenting techniques for dealing with a persistent child.
    Here is a link to a really good program/books.

    Maybe he's bored at school and/or doesn't want to be there?
    Another idea, may be to limit how long he's at school.

    I would enlist in the teachers help also....hopefully she has a lot of experience with young children and is willing to work with you.

    Take care,

    He really loves his school. He asks on weekends and when we are on vacation if there is school. Hopefully it is a phase and will end shortly.
