My 8 year old had an emotional breakdown over her grades-a few kids in her class tested higher in math on the 3rd grade benchmark test. She cried and obsessed about it all night. She is displaying Ocd symptoms. I am awaiting a therapy appointment for her. In the meantime- i have asked the school for help . I feel so badly for her-she really believes that she is stupid(even though she has been nominated for the talented and gifted program for her grade) What can i do to help her until we get some professional help? I am letting her stay home from school tomorrow because she is so wigged out about the remainder of the state testing- I cant stand to see her suffer. She used to love school but is so worried about her academic standing and grades, you would think she was in med school! Thanks for listening.
