At night, we've started experimenting with keeping our youngest son in a crate. He's 13, and in the early stages of a rough pubescence - is that redundant? Aren't all pubescences rough? Like hurricanes and root canals, aren't they all a little harrowing?
Q: Our son is a rising second-grader at a private school. Last year, his behavior was often disruptive and sometimes even downright defiant - problems his first grade teacher did not have with him. At home, we have no more than typical "boyishness" - nothing approaching serious. Nonetheless, at the school's request we took him to a private counselor they recommended. When that did no good, the school began insisting he had a disorder and wanted him put on medication - something we will not do. Anyway, we want to take preventive steps to head this off before it becomes an issue in the coming school year. Can you give us any advice?
