    I'm not sure it's anything other than a phase - our 5-yr-old does something similar regularly. Advice given to me was to keep being patient and consistent and it'll eventually get through.

    comment Too many variables at play — troubled “son”
    "we don't mind if you skip classes, but we'll mind if we know about it" - if he's a bright kid (which it sounds like), this might not be so bad. The way it's being done though (disrespecting the teachers by leaving in the middle of it without permission) sounds like more of an issue than skipping itself though.

    Very useful to differentiate between labour contractions and "practice" (Braxton-Hicks) contractions.
