Your son sounds just like my daughter. I do not know your son, however, he may be like my daughter--feeling angry about not being treated fairly and absolutely not tolerating the teacher's "unfair" behavior towards him.

My daughter does better when another younger person speaks to her about her behavior and the right thing to do. So perhaps you can find someone he respects and likes to talk to him? Or, even a friend that your child really likes.

Unfortunately, sometimes kids need to learn the hard way! He may just have to continue making mistakes and living with the consequences! I guess, I'd just make sure and let him know that he needs to be respectful to his teachers and elders. He'll have to take it from there! It's hard as a parent, though, to step back and leave it up to the kids.

My 15 year old son does not seem to be able to learn from his mistakes. He goes to a grat school, but is having problems with one of the teachers. Granted, the guy is a jerk, but it is a public charter military school, so he has to respect the guy, even when the guy is being a jerk.He also struggles with social interaction, so he often says and does things trying to be "cool", but only ends up causing disruption and alienating his peers more.

Any suggestions???
