: I have a 7 year old little girl who uses forearm crutches and is entering the 2nd grade this year. She went through a "fit phase" at home but didn't at school. What she did at school was "sucker" any first graders she could into doing her work for her. She also just quit doing her math homework. After working with her extensively, I found out she was having trouble rationlizing the problems so she just quit! Needless to say, she got in trouble because she is not allowed to just give up. Since then, she has had to apply herself more, but she is doing fine.
