So i decided not to put my child in school until he turns 6. Just my own personal decision & i feel it will be better. Everyone in my family thinks it is sooo wrong & keep urging me to let him start at 5. They are being so rude & mean about it even after i made it very clear i would not be changing my decision. Seriously what's the big deal geeez! Has anyone else waited to start their child in school & were people negative about it or supportive?

My DD turns 5 August 25, and will start K this year. I feel she is READY. She's bright, and has even been attending pre school, so I see how well she's done in the school setting.
It's different for every parent and every child. You do what YOU feel best. :)

I don't think it is a Big Deal or anyone else's Business!

Didn't that use to be the "norm"? I didn't start until I was 6 and my classmates were all roughly the same age. Mine is starting this year at 5 but I don't see anything wrong with waiting another year either. I'm sorry noone is being supportive.
