"My 3rd grader is having trouble in school with language. He has been in
trouble in the past 2 weeks for cursing. From what I have heard, he is
not the only one. How do I get him to stop before he gets expelled?"
" At age three my daughter started a private christian school, their main
focus was focused on academics. Unfortunately do to the economic hardship
our family had during her first grade i put her in public school. She was
tested prior to leaving her old school and scored in the second grade 6
month. I have had more than one meeting with the school principal and he
says theirs no room my daughter is now going to the third grade and she is
really bored in her class. She is starting the third grader and appreciate
still not getting in the gate program. I would really appreciate if any
one can point me in the right direction as to were i can take my daughter
to be tested. I feel it is an injustice to not find a place were she is
able to grow and be challenged. Thank You "

My son has moved to a new school and is settling down. It has been a struggle for him in the beginning of every year as he has moved to new schools each year. He is a smart kid and was promoted from Kindergarden to First grade due to his academic performance.
Now the current school he is in,the teacher was concerned that he is young for his age to study in third grade but now that no one can do anything about it,we thought things will be fine once he settles down. Now is has been 3 weeks since he has gone to school,he has got 3 F's in his Math tests and this is the first time this is happening. He is a very playful kid and very hyper too but has mellowed down in 2nd grade a bit because of his wonderful teacher. Now this third grade teacher is not happy with him,since she feels that he is acting like a 2nd grader and not being very independent like a third grader and lacks maturity.She says he asks too many questions when asked to do class work. Behaviour wise she does nto have any complains about him. I have requested a parents/teachers conference with the teacher but I am worried if the teacher has an attitude that he is very young to be in thrid grade how will it affect my son?
Please let me know what I can do to help my son.
"why does it seem all the children books contain a girl as the main character. it is very difficult to get my son interested in books anyway and this doesn't make it any better. does anyone have some interesting books that contain a boy hero or subject?"
