so glad it worked out for her and she is doing well! My mom was held back in 1st grade due to missing so much school for being ill and it didn’t have a positive effect, unfortunately.  It’s amazing what a difference a year can make for a child though! So glad she has come into her own and gained some self confidence! 🙂

Fantastic!  Sometimes schools and parents are in such a hurry to pass kids on even when they’re not ready that we forget these are real children with strengths and weaknesses just like adults.

That is so wonderful. Sometimes holding kids back a grade is just the absolute right decision, and this seems to be the case now. I’m glad she is doing better academically and socially!

My parents held me back and had me repeat 2nd grade. It was the best thing they could have done for me, because my results were the same as your daughter’s.  Sometimes it just isn’t the best thing for the child to let them keep going forward when they are struggling too much.  Congratulations on doing what was best for your daughter!!
