Daughter in grade one - has attidtude

Hi there,

We have always prided ourselves on giving our kids a strong self image, this has come back to bite in the case of our youngest, who is now in grade one. She is refusing to work at certain times, mostly when the assesments are being done. Not because she can't do it though, as she is able to go through the work with no problem. Should we take her to a child phsycologist or just ride it out.

Thank you

Hard to tell, for anyone who hasn't had a chance to assess the kid directly. You don't mention how long you have already been "riding it out". If this is a very recent problem, maybe follow it a bit longer ; if it's already been established for some months, see a child psychologist for assessment
