To Retain or Not to Retain


My daughter is in 3rd grade at a Christian private school. She has struggled since kindergarten to keep up, but we helped her along, with tutoring and occupational therapy to help her with the basic skills she simply couldn’t master. While she has strengthened in many areas, we have discussed with her teacher and OT having her repeat 3rd grade. Now my question is, how should we tell her? She is quite sensitive, and she’s always felt “less than” the other kids. How to we break the news while encouraging her that she didn’t do anything wrong?
