12 year old - memory loss
My daughter is 12 years old, she is absolutely forgetful, she has problems with studying. She can't remember where she put anything. Simple things like times tables, eg. 8x9. It's not just the shool work, theres alot of general everyday things she forgets. Should I be concerned, if so who should i see?

Bee, the safest would be to have her evaluated by her paediatrician as it sounds like there might be an underlying problem. Better safe than sorry. Good luck.
