My daughter is 10 an dis really having a hard time in school. When I help her at home, it becomes a fight and she ends up melting on me. How do I help her and also help build her self esteem. She is constantly saying "see, i stupid" I'm really stuck on how to work this

Has your daughter had an educational evaluation before? Maybe she has a learning disability?
