my son may need to see pediatrician
My son is in grade 2. I just had a parent teacher conference. The teacher said my son is doing ok in academic work, but he has a bad behavior, such as not following rules, interrupting others during the class, not doing well during group work. I actually prepared to hear such things from the teacher because Grade 1 also had similar comments before. My son is too energetic and does have behavior problem. Me and my wife has struggled with this for a long time. Other than that, his study is ok; he loves going to school, and he plays well with his classmates. So, the behavior problem we are always aware, and really appreciated that the teacher pointed it out straightly, and hope teacher can help us to fix his problem.
Then I asked the teacher if my son can focus during the class. She replied that my son cannot focus at all, and said he might need to see a pediatrician. She said that in front of my son too. Three of us sat together during the conference. After I told this to my wife after we got home, my wife showed some concerns that if it was proper to say seeing a pediatrician in front of my son even thought she agrees with teacher's suggestion; she could've suggest this to parents without my son was listening.
My son became quite after the meeting. We talked to him that he has to admit his bad behavior both at school and at home, and his teacher was right to point it out. But, we told him that we are not supporting teacher's suggestion to take him to see a doctor. And, he needs to proof that he can improve the behavior later on, and we believe he can achieve it. Also, we told him that we will keep in touch with teacher to help him to improve it.
Behind him, me and my wife decide to seek an advice from our pediatrician for his behavior.
Our concern is if it is proper that teacher says the pediatrician thing in front of him.
