[ - ] October birthday daughter is in first grade in NYC public school. She is behind in reading, needs a special reading teacher three times a week at school. Also behind in math, says she copies other people's work. She cries because she says the teacher says they are supposed to do their work without help. Says she hates school. Socially she is outgoing with many friends. In other states she would be in kindergarten this year. I feel like maybe she should be held back. I am assuming the school wouldn't move her to kindergarten. Instead, she will have to struggle this year to the end just to repeat it? There is no way around this, right? She hates going and feels lost. I am meeting with the teacher but wanted to know my options or if anyone has been through this and has advice? 29 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Actually, my public wanted to move my son back and I said no. We’re repeating first grade. I think moving back would be very demoralizing— even worse than struggling. If it’s an option, you could ask your daughter. I did ask my son, and he said no. I was against it regardless, but might have done it had he wanted to. He didn’t hate school though — seem s unaware that struggling was a bad thing. Like your daughter, he also does great socially so that wasn’t an issue. You’re very lucky your school has a reading specialist — ours didn’t and that was part of why (I felth they wanted to put him back (no resources to assist). [ Reply | More ]

Thank you as it is helpful to know this is a possibility. I don't really know what to do. At her school I know of a number of kids who are repeating first grade. They are all late birthdays. I am just worried about her falling more behind. I think the reading specialist will really help. Maybe I need to get her a math tutor.

It’s so hard — I had a tutor in the beginning, but when it’s a developmental issue and not a learning issue, what can you do? So I just worked with him myself — a lot. He wasn’t upset about struggling though (which isn’t that great to be so accepting). We celebrated his progress a lot, and that made him feel good. Remember, as long as she is progressing on her own time line, she’s doing OK. Now, he’s doing really well but I’m so glad he’s repeating. Also, stress to her that everyone struggles at something (blah blah blah). [ Reply | More ]

That reassures me. Did he feel any shame in repeating? Did kids say anything to him. I guess that is one concern I have as to whether holding her back would be a good option.

Chicago isn't that cheap (depending on your point of reference). I live in a Chicago suburb that's considered to be fairly upscale. Lots of old houses, tree-lined streets, walkable neighborhoods, public transit and a cute downtown. Most homes under $800k need work or updating or they're not in a great location. Yes, it's less expensive than the East Coast, but not compared to places like Ohio or areas in the South. With that said, I love it here. [ Reply | More ]

650K in the city in some neighborhoods doesn't get you much. Nor does it in some of the nicer suburbs. I bought my house for less than 200K in a suburb a few years ago. It isn't beautiful or large, but it is functional and affordable. Our taxes and mortgage and trash and water is less than $1200 a month total. [ Reply | More ]

^FWIW, I don't use the term myself, but if a childless woman wants to consider herself a mother, what difference does it make to me. Maybe she has suffered infertility or just hasn't had life work out the way she wanted, and this brings some comfort to her. Doesn't affect me. [ Reply | More ]

It’s just constant shit. Like, they both had real estate investments before they were married. So we were all together and they were talking about their condo. And I said, which one, yours or his ( just clarifying which property my friend was referring to) and he made a big deal out of “it’s OUR property, it’s not mine or hers, it’s OURS. Like I care what their agreeements between them are. [ Reply | More ]
