Out of control 4 year old.

The parenting forums don't get as much traffic as it does here.


I'm hoping this is just a phase but for the last couple months my 4 year old DS has not been doing well at Nursery School.... he is disruptive, wont listen to the teachers.... and now his problem are escalating to him striking the other kids if they are "bothering" him. Its almost everyday I get a bad report from the teachers when I pick him up. Nothing different is going on in the house. He seems out of control even with us at home but of course the discipline is going to be different at home then at school. Its so bad that I'm honestly expecting them to ask us to not come back any day now.

The last thing I want to do is resort to medicating him at age 4 but I don't know what to do.... nothing works and I can't stay home with him.... we would be on the street if DH or I had to quit our jobs. What would you do? Any suggestions?
