" he needs socialization with other children, he needs to listen to and respect other adults, not just you and your parents, but teachers. he'll need an expanded attention span that most kids entering kindergarten don't have unless they've been worked with."
My children aren't in school (homeschool) and they are completely capable of listening to and respecting adults (any adult, not just myself).Â They also know how to use manners!Â I disagree that children need to "learn" socialization skills by being crammed into a classroom of 20 other kids their own age.Â I'm sorry!Â Her son will do fine by playing with kids in the neighborhood, cousins, and siblings.Â
OP, there's obviously a huge debate about keeping kids home or sending them to school. You need to do research for yourself to come to your own decision. Keeping your child home before sending them to kindergarten will not hinder their ability to learn. I promise you that!
