KEBrown asks:

How can get my daughter to like school?

My daughter struggles in school,has been since preschool. I've done everything I can think a parent could do. we've done tutoring after school,tutoring during school hours. It got as bad as a teacher requested I get her tested,which I did and the testing teacher and the result showed she was a little behind in her grade level,but nothing showed that she had a disability. So her father and I decided to have her be held back a year to see if she does better. well she's in the third and still having some difficulties mostly with comprehending and understanding. Reading she's afraid of,math she runs away from. theirs nothing about school I can say she likes. She's in a public school system,which I'm not to happy with and I have express this to them. She has also been in a private school setting which was great and I'm thinking about enrolling her back in the up coming school year. My only concern with that would be can she keep up with the work load at the private school.

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

Part of the reason she may dislike school is that it is hard. Schools often have a hard time helping the child who is the "grey area"... challenged by academics but do not qualify for services.  Therefore, giving her some fun ways to build skills may be needed.  Also, supporting her academically and improving motivation may be helpful.
