My daughter does not seem interested in school as much as she used to when she was younger. It is a little scary because she will be starting middle school next year. I need advice on how to get her back to the point where she loves school and learning new things! Her grades are suffering a little bit because she is getting so frustrated.

The frustration is whats making her not interested in school. Maybe getting a tutor to help her or talking to the teacher about finding out ways to help her. Its getting rid of the frustration that your daughter is feeling. I know this isn't much advice but I'm pretty sure you know what is frustrating her. Its hard being a kid and some struggle more then others just be supportive even when your frustrated.

mine are in middle school now and were struggling the first semester because the work is harder and of course theres no more recess lol. math and social studies seem to be the 2 main problem subjects. i myself am horrible at math and had remedial math all through high school so im not much help either but ive found a few helpful websites and im actually learning with them which they find amusing. coolmath.com is our main site we go on. also ive talked with the teachers and they are getting extra help in a free tutoring program the school provides. their school has a website that the teachers each have their own page and post what their learning for the week and their homework assignments. i stay involved and try to incorperate things at home that help enhance what their doing in school. they each have their own library card and we spend an hour everyday reading together and discussing what they read i try to make learning at home fun so they dont look at learning as a "job" look into what the school can offer for help in the subjects shes struggling with. also last year my oldest was getting bad grades for 2 semesters in science which he always has good grades in and when i got to the bottom of it it had nothing to do with the classwork i found out there was a classmate that was giving him a hard time, i had his desk moved and his grades where all brought up.try to keep an open communication with her ive found that is the most helpful. good luck! :)
