By the time they arrive to school they are exhausted and hungry. They do their very best to keep it together, but all it takes is one negative word or look by a peer that sets them off and they begin to unravel.
Contact the teacher if your child continues to require an excess amount of time to complete homework or is unable to complete assignments. Your child may be distracted, not understanding, unmotivated or just exhausted.
Take time to really listen closely to your child's words and identify what is bothering them. Listen, empathize and stay positive, then set up a plan that helps them feel safe.
