Reading Problems

I got a phone call from Jacob’s teacher today. Jacob is struggling with his reading skills. I need to sign and return a permission slip to school on Monday for him to get extra help. He will be taken out of class for 30 minute everyday for one on one time with a reading specialist. Also, his teacher informed me that Jacob is having an issue keeping his hands to himself on the playground. He is constantly pushing other children and rough housing.

I am just at a loss on how to handle this situation.

I was looking up books online and came across a book called Parenting the Strong Willed Child. If it wasn’t so late I would have run to the store to pick it up.

I am willing to do anything to help him. It must be hard to struggle in school everyday.

Has anyone else ever had to deal with issues like this? What things have you done to help your child? Any advice would be helpful.

  1. All of mine have gone through stages - one year I feel like the worst parent in the world and the next I think I've done pretty darn good. Hang in there! You're a good mom, it's only natural to worry!


Have a thought? Please share! I love hearing from you!!
