If your school has a gifted program, it could turn things around for your daughter and make school more enjoyable for her. Find out how she can take part in such a program.
It's time for a talk with your child's teacher. However, before doing this, talk with your daughter to get her input on why she may be having some problems at school. You could be worrying unnecessarily.
Gifted children are often asked to spend an inordinate amount of time helping classmates. While this is a worthy endeavor, it should never interfere with the gifted child's right to learn. Hopefully, this hasn't been happening to your daughter. You should certainly discuss this issue when talking to your child's teacher.
Often, gifted children are not challenged to perform to their fullest capacity because teachers think they are doing fine. To become an advocate for your daughter, you need to learn as much as you can about giftedness.
