Oh-Val I feel for you. It is so hard to watch our children struggle.
When DD2 was younger I practically had to brib her to go to school. those were some trying years, but we did get through.
One thing that I think has really helped all my kids is getting involved in extra-cirricular activities. Schools offer so much more than sports these days and there is usually something to appeal to everyone. My kids found things they liked and other kids who shared their interest. Not only did they make new friends and had fun, but they felt good about being good at something.
