  • I wish I could help you it started then for my daughter, to find out she was picked on alot, and I mean alot..

    She has been picked on alot only has a few friends, sometimes I think she just ignores it or it don't effect her anymore, because she is friendly with everyone, even though sometimes they look at her weird, she is a good kid.

    She is now in 7th grade, and they say she don't have a learning disability.

    If you figure it out let me know.

  • Maybe she just needs extra reinforcement of the materials? Have her play educational games/do worksheets etc at home.

    Maybe she needs her eyes and ears checked?

  • It could be as simple as she learns in a different way. Some kids are book learners which unfortunately is what most schools teach and others are hands on. Try reenforcing the school lessons with common sense learning. I learned how to do % by my mom taking me to the store and having me figure out how much a shirt would cost.
