Situation: I have boy/girl twins with an August birthday. My girl is very advanced, and my boy is a little behind. Without consideration of his twin sister, I believe my boy could greatly benefit from staying back an extra year before starting kindergarten. I don't believe my girl needs a "bonus year", but I also don't think it is a good idea to have them in different grades; I would need some very strong arguments to convince me separating them into different grades is a good idea.
Questions: What might be the negative effects of giving my daughter a "bonus year" when she doesn't need one? What do you think you would do if these were your children?
