My 5 year old keeps having melt downs (crying episodes) at school because of not being able to finish her work. We never had this problem in Pre-K These meltdowns get her a bad conduct grade at school which causes more meltdowns when we try to talk about it at home. She is a very dramatic but wanting to please child. I just don't know what to do because I want her to care about her work but at 5 years old I think she is stressing too much about the work. We give treats for bringing home good conduct grades and take some of her TV time away when she gets in trouble at school each day. Has anyone had a child that has had these issues? Is it something I need to talk to the teacher about? I am trying not to crush her spirit. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
