my 3 year old and his behavior at school
10/20/2010 at 07:55 AM

hey all, im new here-my son patrick started preschool recently. He seems to be having problems. His teacher says "hes adorable and loves school but he doesnt listen or focus". I feel like such a bad mom. My husband and i currently live with my parents so i am wondering if that could be a factor. I dont want my son to get kicked out of preschool. I think patrick has a lot of energy. My husband was adhd but in my opnion patrick is too young to diagnose. I;m trying to get patrick help by pennsylvania early intervention problem. HIs teacher keeps giving me all these diff numbers b.c i guess she wants the problem solved fast. I just want the best for my son. Anyone else going through this?? I work part time so i cant be with patrick all the time to work on his behavior.

If they want extra money, they can do extra work. Taking care of their own stuff doesn't get extra money, but cleaning and vacuuming the car or doing other chores that benefit the whole family could be on a pay schedule.


It's definitely time for your kids to learn about earning money and the value of the work ethic. It's also a good time to teach them to save some of their earnings. Saving is such an important lesson to include in teaching your children about earning money.
