My daughter repeating 1st grade
I have a 7 yr old daughter who is in 1st grade. She is a special need child but she is advance level reading, writing and math but she is not good in following directions, finishing the task in given time, transition problems, working in a group setting. She is getting help in the school but now, her teacher is telling me that she should be held back in 1st grade to improve her social skill but then, i don't want to accept that as the she is doing great academically. Plus, she will be 8 yr old this year and i truly think her self-confidence will go down if she had to stay back in 1st grade with 6 yr and 7 yr old and she is also very excited to go to 2nd grade. I don't know what to do...i am in tears from two days. I myself cannot accept that my daughter is repeating 1st grade, how iam i suppose to convince my daughter. Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.
