Has your child ever failed or been held back?
I'm asking because my daughter is 9 and in 3rd grade. She started struggling in math in second grade but the teacher didn't do much. Well her third grade teacher has been great been in contact a lot talking and have had some meetings. Anyway math is basically her worse subject. The teacher has been concerned and trying to help her and she gets some extra help already but she suggested getting her learning disability tested to see if she has a learning disability in math.
Well went to school yesterday for our meeting.
My daughter doesn't have a learning disability but they want to hold her back because math is such a struggle and hoping that next year she does better and it helps. It sucks but if it's what she needs I'll deal with it. I don't know how to tell her, and she's going to loose some friends.
Sorry so long. Any advice?
