my 7 year old daugther in the 2nd grade has been acting up alot this year.
we recently moved to texas and her older brother stayed behind for the school year with his grandparents.she started to not like school her third day refusing to do work ,refusing to participate,refusing to even go in to the classroom.then it started to esculate my daugther tried to run out of school and also go physical.we thought moving back to ohio would sovle the problem.it didn't she's doing the same over there.i don't know if it's because i stayed in texas for my job are what her issue is please help........
If she has the same problem at both places, including trying to run out of school (which is a very extreme thing to do), something is going on that is not specific to the school itself. What were things like when she was in first grade? Has she explained anything about why she is doing what she is doing? Do *you* think it is because you are not with her?
Change is really difficult on little kids (heck its not easy for adults). The move to Texas was probably hard on her. Then to move back and not have you come with her is even more difficult. So this is not surprising. I would make sure that someone talks to her school and lets her teacher know what is going on. Granted that a teacher is a poor substitute for a parent, but a good, compassionate teacher can make a difference.
kids that do these sort of things are often times diagnosed with disorders such as ADD, uni or bipolar depression, personality disorders, oppositional defiant disorder. etc.
therapy could certainly be a good thing for her, but as always be wary of medication and always look out for side effects or worsening behavior. she could end up getting worse if she doesn't get treated, or it could just be a temporary thing.
