Hi, my daughter is seven years old and in grade 2. The problem is that she is always forgeting her stuff at school like jersey or lunch box. How do i help her remember them? Other things she does not forget, sometimes i think its because of all the playing and being in a rush. What do you think?

She's normal. Maybe you can set up a 'checklist' for her that she keeps in her desk or homework folder. Just a list of all the things she needs to remember to bring home. That might help cut down on the forgetfulness a little.

Very normal! You should see the lost and found at my daugher's school! :) kids don't multi task naturally, it is a learned skill. Totally agree with making a check list for your daughter. When there is a rush to get school over for the day' forgetfulness can completely take over!
