Hi Meetali, Children of your son's age do things impulsively without thinking of the consequences. The reason is frontal lobe of his brain which is responsible for self control is still developing (will continue to develop till his 20). Though he knows the expectations in classroom, he is talkative because he is not able to control himself. Instead of telling him to stop, talk to him and ask why he talks in class. What makes him talk, what he could have done, what he can do to control. He will definitely come up with some plans like He can tell himself at the beginning of the day that he will not talk in class. He can set that as a goal for a day. Take one day at a time. He can take notes to control himself from talking, he can try visualizing what teacher says and draw pictures in his notebooks, he can doodle. Mostly kids get diverted only when teacher keeps talking a lot and when boredom sets in. If the class is interactive, I am sure distraction will reduce. So to a great extent it also depends on how the teacher is taking the class. But anyway you can give a positive reinforcement. When he attempts to control himself from talking, reward him and appreciate him. Let him know that he has the control and responsibility for his actions. And tell him he is wise enough to do the right thing. Good luck
