Hi. I have a 8 year old son who still refuses to learn. He knows some words and can spell his name but I can not get him to read or learning spelling words is a hassle. He won't pay attention to anything I say or try and teach him. He always thinks he already knows. Like a teen already. Lol. We held him back in kindergarten so he's in first grade right now and his grades are As and Bs but I don't see how. I'm afraid to confront his teacher cause I'm scared she will hold him back and he's already a 8 year old in first grade. I have asked her how's he doing and she always says great. But he can't read!! Doesnt even want to try. What can I do ?
