[ - ] Dd is going in to kindergarten next year. At school this year she has had a hard time. She wants very much to do her own thing, she doesn't really play cooperatively (although she has friends and the kids like her), the school brought in an aide to help. I have started volunteering in the classroom to help as well. When I am there all is well. The teachers say she is a different child when I am there. I've had her evaluated three times by various professionals over the past three months. No one can diagnose her. I truly think she has deep anxiety, but I have no idea what to do about it. Anyone have any advice or btdt? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Observe her secretly so you can better see the behavior [ Reply | More ]

I've sent professionals to observe her. I've been told what the problems are. I just don't know how to help her, or the teachers without being there. [ Reply | More ]

She is getting so much attention, why should she change her behavior? Maybe an aide should help out but you should stop volunteering in her classroom. If you want to homeschool DD go ahead. But this is too much Mommy time and support. Of course she is a different child - Mommy came to school with her unlike the other kids. She's special. "Diagnose her?" What are you looking for, a child who cannot cope with others? Then you are well on your way. Let the school handle it, back off and enjoy DD at home. [ Reply | More ]

School asked me to help. I felt bad with all the extra effort they have had to put in with dd, so I wanted to give them as much I could. [ Reply | More ]

How experienced are the preschool teachers? Do you have a younger child at home? I've seen a child with a new sibling have problems at school. Who would want to go to school while mom stays home with the new baby? [ Reply | More ]

^^^Another thought: I wouldn't talk about next year's school plans to child. Talking about something so far in the future can confuse some children. [ Reply | More ]

If she's a different child when you're there, then she has the ability to play cooperatively and behave. Could the school be a bad fit? Is this particular teacher making her nervous? If the school has called you in and asked you to help, they're probably seeing her as a problem child. Any chance she's sensing this and it's making her uncomfortable? DS had a tough time beginning school when he was three. We switched schools, and he did wonderfully. He's been great at school ever since. If no one has been able to diagnose her, I'd look closely at the environment she's in. [ Reply | More ]
