My son is 4 almost 5 and this is his first time in a "school" environment.  Only 3 months in and they are wanting to switch his teachers in Pre-K.  I'm concerned that the teacher is "giving up" on my son.  He does have "antsy" pants and he has the selective hearing.  He's gone through the normal behaviour issues of all boys and that's cleared up, however, the teacher is frustrated.  I've put him on "calm child", however, that made his hyperness worse.  So I've cut out sugar, candy and even the red dye stuff trying to get him to be a calm quiet child this and other teachers are expecting.  Is this a bad thing?

I don't know if this will help, but I also cut out gluten in my kids' diets. my 9 yr old is a different person on gluten. I would not have thought that would have made such a difference. on gluten he is uncooperative and intense and gassy. we found this out a couple years ago and trust me, he can't cheat without his mind and body giving him away. good luck!

Yes, I believe this is a bad thing.  While you're an awesome parent for cutting all the bad stuff out of his diet, to help him beh is best, but to do this because a teacher can't handle her job is wrong sweetie.  No teacher should ever expect a calm, quiet child at all times. He's 4 for goodness sake!  That teacher needs to learn how to be more patient, understanding and accommodating.  I'm a parent of a child who has ADHD and Bipolar Disorder, it's not easy.  Good luck to you.
