My 6 year old daughter has been stuggling in school

My daughter has been struggling in school and finishing her in class homework. The teacher has kept her in from recess and so on to try to get her to get it done. It does not seem to faze her. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can keep her focused on getting her schoolwork done in the time allowed? I have done some searching on ADHD and it does not seem to be the issue. However, I have picked up some forms to fill out for her pediatrician to do an evaluation. Just need a little assistance on some ideas until I can get to the bottom of the issues.

Thank you,

Re: My 6 year old daughter has been stuggling in school

My son will be 6 in Jan. and he is sorta having the same issues. I don't believe they keep him inside from recess but she has mentioned to me that he has problems finishing his work. His deal is (I believe) is that he's a perfectionist. I tell him he needs to work faster and he tells me that if he works faster he won't be in the lines and it wont be right. It's not that he doesnt want to do the work cause hes gotten in "trouble" for not putting it away on time and still wanting to work on it.
What I've done with him is just sat him down and explained that it's ok if it's not perfect and always in the lines, you can work faster and your work can still be awesome.
Hope you find something that works for yall! Good luck!
