I'm so aggravated for Piglet. She is just drowning academically in high school. She does A/A+ work on homework, often with me on her shoulder making her redo it or improve it. But she is failing or getting Ds on her tests -- nearly all of them. There is definitely a learning disability there. I have to try again to get the school to test her.
I want her to be able to be involved in after school activities but not if her grades are too low. I'm letting her finish the last week of her fall sport but then she'll be with me, at the kitchen table about 4-5 hours/day trying to get her grades up before the end of the quarter. We are both going to hate it but there is no choice if she is going to get acceptable marks.
We had such high hopes for her high school experience and it is all just unravelling. I'm very sad.
