My SD starts school in a few weeks, BM has done a great job working with her on letters and does workbooks with her all the time(she has also been in preschool since she was 2). But recently it was brought to my attention that she was unable to name any numbers and she was unable to count past 10.
I sat with her for a few hours making flash cards and helped her count up to the number we made before starting the next one. When her dad walked in the room she pointed to numbers and was able to tell him what many of them were. She has a low self esteem so being ahead of the class is key for survival. I feel like a terrible step mom for not catching this sooner but her overly attentive BM didn't either. Any tips? We have her 50% of the time and if her mood is right she's very focused.
