Have any of you had a child skip a grade? What was your experience with that? We are debating having our 8 year old skip a grade. He's bored in class, already struggles with ADHD and we think perhaps a more challenging environment will be better. He is pretty mature, but I am still apprehensive about it.

Talk to the pros..... his teachers, principal and the school psychologist... he might be board now, but he might end up struggling in Middle and High school and end up having to repeat a grade.
