I thought you had to throw stuff and be very disruptive in school to get a detention?My daughter came home yest and was crying because the reading teacher and her teacher were talking in front of her and mentioning about giving her a detention for not paying attention.The teacher did call me the day before to tell me of her not focusing and not answering questions appropriately and playing with her pen too much and she said we would try to work together for 2 weeks to get her on track.But then they talk in front of her the next day and say about a detention!!And she was crying last night about not wanting to go to school. I have taken her video game away as a punishment and she understands this.I wrote her teacher a letter telling her about Carley being upset and Im upset too!I told her teacher she got candy at parade over weekend and this affects her and I have hid the candy also.My little one says she wants to do good.HELP!Answer Question

Have you had your daughter tested for ADD? It took me awhile, about 6 years in fact, of punishing my child for what he was doing at school. Finally, he broke down and cried that he just couldn't help what he did. A trip to the psychiatrist confirmed my suspicion that he was ADD and with the right meds my son is an entirely different child.
I wish everyday I could take back the years of me yelling and punishing him and the teachers hating having him in class.
