My step son is 6 years old, he is a very good boy but he isn't doing good when it comes to following directions. He gives up so easy and beat himself up for things that he fails at. For example in his class, the teacher put him at a table away from other kids because he talks to other kids and distract them, and when the teacher asks him to stop, he stops for a min and then continues again. He also used to pull cards all the time, and the teacher said that when he pulls a card, he looks at other kids and kind of smile like it's nothing serious.
Basically he can't listen, he needs to be told over and over to do something. Like we have to tell him zip your jacket 5 times before he does it. he interrupt people all the time, he gets very impatient with things that need to be done with focus and time. He plays computer games all the time and when we take it away, he throws feet because he can't be entertained. He expects to be entertained all the time, when we ask him to sit with us and have quiet time, he acts uncomfortable and complains that he is bored and he wants us to play with him. So that's all I have to say. I am one of the people that can control him very well. He listens to me more than anyone else, and he tends to take orders from me better. So that makes me realized he is capable of doing good but only with me. How can we get him to do his best with everyone ?
