My Son Doesn't Respond At School! A Confused Father Needs Help, Pls by Omotakins(m): 4:52pm On Jul 11, 2016
My son(almost 4yrs) is in the reception class. He doesn't respond to teachings at school, doesn't talk or play. This is the exact opposite at home. Plays very well at home, sings and talks about all he's taught in the school. He responds very well to the teachings of his home teacher. His teacher in school is saying he will repeat class 'cos there is nothing to show he's learnt things. What do I do? Teachers, educators and Co, ur help is needed pls.

At home... Do you allow your son to play around with his peers in your neighbourhood?..

His relationship with the neighbours will go along way to enhance his social life.. If you stay where there are no neighbours around.. Try to bring in ur brothers or sister's children for visitation during weekends....

I used to be like him... But in my case.. I wasn't able to speak English language which was the only means of communication in the school... So I'll find it very difficult to associate with other kids in the school...

You can try teaching him the little you can at home, or change the school. Maybe a change in environment will be better

I did say that he plays at home, talks, recites things taught in school, but all these he won't do in school.

School is the issue. He has home teacher and we teach him at home,too He will just not talk in school making the school say he might repeat class.

Do you know that kids learn differently?
Do you know the first 11 years of a child's life are the most important as this is the period that shapes the brain, mind and provides foundation for growth and development.
Have you heard about smart learning?

Children learn differently. But please be very sure that he's not being victimized by his teachers. Cos sometimes the way teachers scold at children who are "quiet" like yours makes them even quiet the more. It makes them hide in their "shell" just the way I see your child is doing. If he was generally quiet everywhere and dull, the child won't be playing at home and reciting all he learns in school.... Op, to solve your problem, look first at the school before anywhere else. ... And hope the teacher isn't one frustrated Aunty who has been looking for a husband and can't get because of her bad character??

He's simply a good observer and an introvert.Such kids are very intelligent. The school teacher maybe too harsh or pays less attention to kids individually

One of the many habits of over-pampered kids. He probably needs to be spoon-fed before he can learn.

He is probably just shy in school,the teacher should be more patient with him. You can change his school if possible, to a good montessori school

Wows... Since he's a bit grown up, try sending him on errands to his teacher, tell him to greet his friends for you, just tell him to tell his friends about his toys and things he enjoys doing at home... Remember... tell him to tell them...
By the way, parents... Read my blog post on: Importance of Math Education to children

There is nothing wrong with your child. I guess he started school late hence keeping to him self in school this period. At age 4, he should be in Nursery 1. Truth is everything taught in school his sticking to his brain and can reproduce in a warm environment (Teacher and co pupils).

Visit the school and see how the teacher relates with them. At that stage, teaching should be individual based and not general. What is the age range of those in the class and well does he relate with his mates.

The teacher in school can be of help by using incentives and motivation methods to make him crawl out of his shell. HE is just being shy!

You can also involve the proprietor or proprietress of the school.

But does he play with friends in the neighbourhood, or is he alone? If he's alone, or just with his parents, he probably might not be used to interacting with others and might close himself up out of fear, or just being shy. If he does play with friends, then its possible that he's scared of the teacher, maybe try to find out if anything has happened between the teacher and your son. All the best sir.
