I have a 6 year old son that when asked to do school work just sits there and day dreams and doesn't do anything, please help
He can read and write perfectly well (bit messy as he is left handed, but in france they make them do joined up writing from the start), he speaks two languages (english and french), he is very sporty plays for the local rugby team and also does judo, and he also has his own horses so occasionally rides (he is more interested in brushing them than riding). He has also won national art competitions with some fantastic paintings.
He is an amazing little boy, the nicest most thoughtful little boy, fun to be around and gets on very well with everyone from little babies to adults.
But at school he either gets top marks so 20s out 20s, or zeros.......this goes for writing and maths and anything that requires a little bit of concentration. The teachers all say that he should be getting top marks for everything, as he is more than capable, but he just can't be bothered and just sits there staring into space half the time. He isn't naughty, he doesn't disrupt the class, he just does nothing. And no punishment seems to help.
THe teacher has told me to get him to do school work throughout the summer, as when he goes back to school after the summer the workload is gonna be much heavier......so I am trying, and he is all very pleasent about it saying yes he is gonna work hard etc, and then he just stares into space again.
