This week, the Malibu Patch Moms Council asks: If your child is of legal age, is it appropriate to start your child in Kindergarten? Or should you wait another year? What are other parents with children the same age doing and why?
If lots of parents are red-shirting their kids, it may suggest that there's a problem with what the school is expecting of the children. Or do parents have unrealistic expectations about school readiness and the transition to new learning environments?
We want to hear from parents who have children of Kindergarten age or near it. And we also want to hear from parents whose children are past that age. What did you do, and how did it affect your child? What advice do you have for other parents?
