My son's 5th birthday is TODAY!!! We decided that we would keep him in pre-school another year. He's really small for his age, physically, not intellectually. I was just curious how many other mom's put their child in Kindergarten at age 6 instead...and how did that work out for you? Are there any mothers that went ahead and put their kids in kindergarten at the "right" age, and now wish they hadn't. Why or why not?

I wouldn't keep him out of kindergarten just because of his size.....if he not ready academically or maturity wise then yeah keep him back one more year. But if he is ready academically then I would start him in kindergarten or else he will be bored out of him mind in pre-k and he could start not liking school because it is boring....He is 5 and age wise is ready to go.....
