My oldest is soon to be 8 and her dad had kicked us out back in June so I knew this year was going to be tricky and her teacher has been amazing with helping. Well today she had gotten her folder home and she had gotten a bad report today due to trying to change her grade in her folder that comes home daily. She is really smart but this year she is making poor choices and it just keeps getting worse I don't know how to handle this change in her any advice would be great

My opinion,

I think the last thing she wants is to make u upset with her (it makes her sad and feel BAD.)

So she will do that, even change the grade to hope that you don't see what was there before. She doesn't want to hurt your feelings. Divorce is really hard on the babies.

Maybe remind her that nothing she could ever do will make you not love her as much as you do when she is even succeeding in what she does!

Tell her to never hide these things from you because there is no need.

Family counseling or her talking to the school counselor about why she makes poor choices.   DD had a bad day last week for some reason and had to deal with the natural consequences of her actions.  She is 6 .

The school counselor and maybe even some family counseling would be very beneficial.  At her age, she has lots of feelings about what's going on and with all the changes, she has no control over what's going on around her.  It's hard for a child her age to know how to appropriately deal with everything.

Thanks ladies after talking to her teacher I am going to get her into counseling her teacher and I had a meeting today and it's worse than I had initially thought. She is in 2nd grade doing 4th grade work so academics are not suffering it's just behavioral
