My 12 and 8 -year-old stepdaughters have recently moved in with us from their mother's in New York. My eight-year-old is having severe trouble with word recognition, meaning and any motivation to learn. She consistently forgets to bring home her homework assignments,and struggles with understanding instructions from her teacher and following directions on written work. When I try to help her she's not interested in learning at all she gets very frustrated and angry and refuses to even try because it's hard. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.
