Big Trouble in little china….

I had my parent teacher interview today expecting it to be fairly simple and mostly good……not so….

my boy who’s school report said that he was a pleasure to teach has GONE.

His teacher got back after 2 weeks holiday plus 3 weeks long service to find instead an Owen who is wilfully disobedient. One who has not been able to focus on his work, has actually PUNCHED another kid in the playground and been generally disruptive.  He is meant to tell me if he has his name written in the ‘inappropriate behaviour book’ but this is the first I have heard of it! He is also meant to be watching out for things about the Olympics on TV and in newspapers – now had I known that I would have bought the odd paper or put the TV on for the news but no Owen didn’t tell me.

WE were looking at starting night time toilet training this week but I have decided to put it off a week and see if he settles back down at school first.  He promised that he will and he has done some homework tonight which is a good start.  I hope this is just a short blip in and things will go back to smooth sailing from here.
