Hi All,

My 6 year girl was born 5 weeks early on December 26th. She's behind in everything, math, grammar and has no friends at school, except for 1 girl in grade 1, she's in grade 2. Everything points to her being held back a grade but the school and board is adamant against that. Not sure if we should keep fighting or try and stick it out. We've lots of meetings with the teacher, principal, trustee, super etc.

If she was fine academically but not socially we'd work with her and keep her in grade 2, and vice versa. But it's tough being behind on both fronts. The kicker is no one plays with her from her class, not because they're mean but because she's not at their level.
