My grandson who lives with me is in kindergarten and has ADHD symptoms. The school councelor had his teacher and me to do a Attention deficit disorders evaluation scale and he score a 3 for attention which is bad and a 6 on hyperactivity which is still bad. He is a sweet, polite, loving little boy. He has a good imagination. Yet he has gotten sad notes sent home since nursery school. He smacked another teacher on the behind while going by in line. He pulled the fire alarm at P.E. He won't sit still on the bus. He won't stay on task unless the teacher sits near him. When they have small group reading and it is not his group they are supposed to work on pages alone color etc but he can't keep on track when the teacher is not with him. She said the other kids are picking up on the fact that she is alway getting on to him and that he "gets by" with more than they do. He won't walk in line. Simple things that seem so small. His teach says he is not falling behind but we have to come up with something to do with his behavior. He also talks, hums, and moves about in his desk. I need suggestions for this meeting. I have gone through this before with one of my daughters but it was learning deficet not so much hyperactivity and disrupting of class. Yes, I have alot on my plate if you have read my other posts. Any suggestions will be great! I feel like I am going through this alone and I know others probably have it worse but........you know, I hope.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
