  • I think kids are starting school way too young these days. They are just not ready emotionally, physically, intellectually.

  • talk to the teacher about what her suggestion would be... give her more time to get adjusted, look into holding her back (is she the youngest/among the youngest), what things you can work on at home, or a special class/diff. program...
    also talk to your speech therapist etc. and get their opinion as well...
    there are LOTS of diff. options... and if she is among the youngest its a good idea for MANY kids to hold back and be among the oldest... every kid has their OWN way of developing.

  • I would start talking to the teacher more. Perhaps they have some one who could come by the school and work on her speach skills. Keep the lines of communication open with her teacher and find out if there's anything you can do to help her at home. Remember there is always help! Just get talking with the school.

  • Talk to her teacher more. Maybe she needs to wait until she's 5.

  • My son had no issues since he went to preschool before that and most of his friends are in the same JK with him.

  • talk with her teacher. dont take her out just see if she can get more help. if you take her out then you doin more damage because waiting is not gonna solve the problem you need to work thur it.

  • If she's not ready, take her out and wait until she is ready.
