So my son is 4 and he is having some serious anxiety in his k-4 class. He is having constipation, stomach aches and an overall stress of practicing his name in class. He seems to have some sort of a anxiety problem that we need to address. I want to remove him and put him back in a school that is much less pressured. His teachers think he really should be writing his name ( he is only 4 and he can just not all the time) He will stress about it. I do not know what they could be saying but he is getting really worked up. They have the kids doing a least 5 to 7 worksheets and he only goes two days. He is very capable of doing the sheets but he struggles some with his name and he will ask me to help him in class to write it. It breaks my heart. He seems stressed and will not play like he normally does while at home or on play dates. He has 10 months till kindergarten and so much can happen in that time. What would do??Answer Question

I know it may be too early to tell but have you thought that it could be dyslexia? I have dyslexia and my son is 6yr, and I know it's hereditary, the first thing I asked the kindergarten teacher (not in front of my child) but i asked for help in watching for some signs of it, I also asked the same of his first grade teacher. I'm not talking about writing the R or S backwards but things my son does is mistake a 5 for a 2. a W for M. the word saw for was. there are other signs like does thinking outside the box come easy for him and simple things seem harder.......It's just a thought.
