5 years old kid.. Below are my concerns from her. Meturity levels are low :: feels difficult to identify it's morning or night and today is school holidays or not. It's difficult to handle her, when she saw some chocolate or toys she was not able to answer,if we ask what teacher said in class room & she don't know the exams are going on. Development delay :: what we can expect for 5 years old kids ? Not interesting on writing ( home work) Understanding level :: compare to other kids with same age. Like completing home work, what teacher said in class room, writing in exam answer sheet. She feels more emotional, with kids. Even if they avoid, she wants to be with them.

Sometimes kids just put forth such behavior when they are scared of answering wrong, to avoid being questioned, or are simply just shy and feel difficulty in expressing themselves. They tend to have low self confidence. Do some modifications, if these doesn't help, get her IQ assessed by a paediatrician/psychologist/child counselor Instead of teaching her in book and copy by showing pictures, rather take her out and show it practically, like colors, fruits, vegetables, birds, flowers, trees, animals. While referring to a fruit for eg you can say its P for Pear, another thing is P for parrot, now ask her to say something more, give her hints, like color of frock you wearing etc, and encourage her. Show her videos of rhymes of such things. Ask her to do coloring. A boost in confidence is must must required before being in right levels to analyze anything
