How would you deal with a 6 yr old (1st grader) who hits and has kicked other children when he says he's annoyed or frustrated? There is a lot of background to this issue, but I'd like some advise before posting the rest of it. He was suspended from the bus for 3 days for an agression issue that involved a girl!! We've grounded, taken away TV time and all video games, put him to bed early. He cried and seemed upset, but more about losing his priveledges than relizing that behavior won't be tolerated. If this happens again, he will be spanked and lose all of his toys as well. ??

bullying does come to mind. Is he being bullied by other kids?
Dear Bishop55, I just read what you had to say about your son, I think your right. Someone or the girl pissed him off. But if he was born with any drug use it's in his blood. You might have him checked. But I think he is just boy it's going to take
Well I'm sure he always feels like the oddball and that girl staring made him feel bad. His life sucks please tell his father the boys been through enough and to find a way other than spanking. Go back to therapy. Good Luck.
He was born drug free. He was exposed to meth smoke when he was in her care the last...year or so? I'm not sure. But he is not a drug baby. Thank god for that.
I see your analogy here. I'd like to think the elephant represents his father in his life fulltime, but in a way this boy lost his mother.Also, his bio mom did not do meth during her pregnancy, so at least that is ruled out.
Bishop55: I wish you all the luck and all the patience in the world. Don't forget YOUin all this; it's difficult to take on someone else's child even if s/he has no probs. Maybe an appropriate online group exists for parents like you? Worth a look.
