Good morning fellow moms thank you for welcoming me to the group. Well today I was lead to seek out help from other parents who might be or has struggled with a child/children academically. So I have three biological children and two step children and out of all 5 of mine and my husband's children "Our Children" the youngest who's 10 years old "Jaylen" struggles academically in a way that none of our children have but then he supersedes the intelligence of any one of our children when it comes to common sense, spirituality, understanding of people, politics and of the world. Omg! Its AMAZING! He's sympathetic, sympathetic, just so caring, beyond helpful, respectful. The wisdom he contains is as if he's an adult but when it comes to his work in school he has a hard time comprehending what he is reading, he can read very well, he can read words that most children his age struggle to read. I just dont understand how can a 10 year old be articulate and read a business magazine understand it totally but then can not understand, articulate, or write about it something he read in school. He comes home daily with incomplete school work, struggles to complete h.w. in a timely manner. He still us struggling with time tables and division. Actually he's in 3rd/4th grade glass because he missed the reading EOG by one point. I'm totally lost, hurt, frustrated, angry at the situation. Please help with ideas/strategies. My load is so heavy that's its effecting how I deal with my son and do not want to hurt his growth. Today, i'm changing his diet no sugars during the week and going to the health food store to buy folate and coconut oil. I received those ideas from other post, I read this morning. Thank you all in advance.
