Re: young kindergarten - holding back?
My son is one of the oldest in his class in kindergarten, but because of some health issues is also the smallest, and he does get teased about it. Thankfully he doesn't get upset about it and does have friends but he's also mature for his age. I'd really suggest waiting a year for kindergarten and putting him in some other program this year.
As for the putting him in two years of kindergarten, if he does end up getting teased a lot it may make him hate school and not want to go back next year, even though he'll be the oldest at that point.
