He was kept back in first grade last year though he attended Sylvan all summer. The principle said he just did not have the reading skills to learn by reading his own yet. I didn't \agree but she was the end all, so the superintendent told me. Now, he is having issues getting along with the children in his new first grade class. He got an N in that area on his report card. I let his dad (who I am divorced from) know and he went off. He says that I need to take him to the doctor and that something is wrong with him because he just isnt right. I'm going to take him to the dr. but I ended up going off on Dad. I feel like he is being ridiculous and that my son is a pretty normal kid. Perhaps a tad rambunctious at times but overall a great loving and caring kid. I was just wondering how you all's boys are? Like I said Joseph is just kinda nonstop, but he is a great kid.Answer Question

I would agree with the supplements-but I would also try to take all the refined sugar,artificial coloring, and certainly artificial sweeteners out of his diet. I have a friend who has trouble with 6 out of 7 kids. They finally took the big steps above and have seen great improvements. ALSO---having two boys--they are full of energy. A lot of boys really aren't ready to sit down and learn until 9 or so. They are ready to learn a lot of other stuff, but worksheets, workbooks, and stuff. That is one reason we home educated our kids. All have excelled academically and socially.
