"Redshirting" for Kindergarten?
Our local paper had a front page article on why many families choose to have their children wait to start kindergarten until they are 6. I fully agree with the article, particularly the closing sentiment. "I have had families say later that they wish they would have waited to have their child start school, but I have never had a family say they wish they would have started earlier." The academic demands of kindergarten require as much maturity as a child can have. My advice continues to be, wait.
