Re: young kindergarten - holding back?
I would skip kindergarten for a year and enroll him in a nursery school. By the sounds of it he wants to be in a structured learning setting but he doesn't quite have the maturity to really thrive to his full potential in kindergarten just yet. His first exposure to school should be as positive as possible. They don't get the one on one attention and guidance in kindergarten. If he suffers socially and there isn't anyone there to guide him it could really taint his perception of school.
