This is going to sound totally counterintuitive, but try spending 30 minutes each evening one-on-one with him doing what HE wants to do (Legos, playing outside, whatever). I would suspect he is feeling overwhelmed at school for some reason, and dreading coming home to be punished by mom is pushing him over the edge. If you tie the one-on-one to something he has to do anyway (bath, eat dinner) it won't seem like a "reward" for misbehaving, but just a normal part of the day. Worked wonders with my daughter. We played Barbies. Re: the "bad things there" might be as simple as a gentle reprimand from his teacher that embarresses him in front of his friends, or a time-out. He might be figedty (sp?) and have a hard time sitting still. My daughter couldn't stop talking ("She's a lovely child, but she Talks So Much!") Also, the teacher, if she has called you, should have been very specific about what he's been doing. If she's experienced, she should have some guess about what his triggers are, too. Sorry this is so long.
