Well my son is a first grader and was doing a great job in school when we were in washington, then we move to texas and he is behind? I cant help to feel its our fault as parents, moving all the time bing in the military my son has been in three different school. Now i get the news he may not be ready for second grade? Im so upset because he is looking forward to going to second grade. They said the standers here in texas are very much higher and theres no exceptions. So im hoping we can get him caught up by getting him in summer school. Am i a bad mom for wanting to go back to washington where my son was doing great and had no problems?Answer Question

Are you a bad mom for wanting to "take the easy way out" and move back to Washington? Not necessarily. We can't much help how we feel. But what are you going to do about it? What you do is much more important than how you feel about it. You might want to look into home schooling, especially If you think you will keep moving, It would offer your child a more consistent education with fewer transitions. Plus you could get started over the summer so he gets caught up too. It's a lot of work and you have to go find a social outlet for him in addition to school time, but it is up to you what you want to do about it.

I'd say home school till you can catch him up. You can cover much more when it is just one on one than the kid can in a class room. You can always sign him up for baseball, basket ball play groups and such for social interaction.
