Re: Kindgarten question - esp for moms with kids near cutoff date
Our cutoff is December 31st and DS was born October 16th. All of his friends are starting K this year, but I'm holding him until next year. If he had to start, I think he'd do ok... he's smart enough and has good social skills, but his attention span is pretty short. My main worry is that while I know he is a normal crazy 4 year old, he might get labeled with ADHD or something. It seems that is so quick to be diagnosed these days, that by giving him the extra year to "grow up" he will be passed that stage of development.
Wife to Nick since 7.2.05, Mom to Cameron since 10.16.06 & Dominic 4.7.09 and #3 coming in October 2014!
