My 6 year old DD is in 1st grade.. Last year she loved school, but this year is a whole different story. She crys all the time and tells me she doesnt have any friends, then at other times tells me about all the stuff her and her friends did at school that day. I have talked to her teacher about it and she says Gabby has a ton of friends and is never alone at recess, but sometimes she doesnt want to play what the other kids are playing so she will walk around with her teacher.. Then at times she says she doesnt want to go because she misses her sisters, which is true, they miss her while she is at school too. Even thismorning she was upset about going to school, on the verge of tears. She says she wants to be home schooled, but I have a hard time just getting her to do 2 pages of homework a night, I couldnt imagine trying to get her to pay attention while she does hours of schoolwork a day and her sisters are running around playing.. Any advice on what I should do? I really hate seeing her sad and crying like this..
