Done With The Re-Evaluation

Faith is diagnosed for ADHD when she was in kinder. Don’t feel bad about it, my daughter is okay, we just need to correct her behavior so she can focus more.

So our evaluation just done last Friday, I really thought that we can transfer her already in a big school, the school near us but I was wrong because she still need to improve more, she still can’t focus, she talks a lot even while completing her task, she’s very impulsive and distracted.

Her Math evaluation for school related skills was yet in Grade 3 and she’s already in Grade 4. She whined when she have to answer the Math problem.

But with Science and Reading comprehension, she is so advanced for it.

The Doctor suggested for a Math Tutorial and a Behavioral Therapy.

I was thinking to continue her Kumon in Math and won’t do a Behavioral Therapy that if I will stop working. To stop working is to sacrifice for some extra stuff. If I stop working, our outside activity like eating in a restaurant, or Jollibee or McDonalds will be limited. We need to budget a lot with foods to eat at home, allowances, and transportation, which means no Taxi even all the Jeepneys are full.

I know that if I am working I can provide them all the stuffs, especially Mj will be in college soon. I can help big time with our expenses at home. But I really have to think about this, I also don’t want to compromise the things that my kid’s needs especially with their school and education.

My Youngest Daughter Leveling Up In Kumon

My youngest daughter just started Kumon since she likes books so I let her do the reading comprehensions worksheets. With just a short span of time, she was able to progress beyond their expectation I was so glad to receive the remarks from her teacher and that she ready for another level.

Congratulations Faith! You have progressed remarkably more than we have expected and we want to congratulate you for that that great job. However always remember that good attitude is also important for a smoother progress in the succeeding levels.

That was her note by her teacher; I was worried with the attitude remarks though so her teacher and I had a talk about it. Faith would sometimes get too noisy and very talkative. Sometimes she talked very loud and if she would say sorry, it was loud enough for the others to hear it. So her teacher said before she will do her session Faith would talk to the head first and maybe mind set her not to be too noisy and minimize her being so talkative.

Yes, I am worried though, I was even thinking to maybe Faith needs a check-up for her behavior, she is also hyper but my husband said she will outgrow it. Unlike before I could talk to Faith right now I just have to put it into details of what to do inside the classroom, I would tell her don’t be too noisy, don’t play etc, etc and sometimes she would follow it but it just there are sometimes that she cannot avoid it. I know there is no harm to go to the doctor for us to be assuring of her behavior but mind you I am really thinking about it.
