My son just turned 5 right before going into kindergarten. I mean literally right before. He turned 5 in August and just made it. I have been debating whether to keep him back a year. I had sent him to Preschool before going to kindergarten and he did improve quite a bit from going there but I know that he needed a little more time. So I decided to talk to his preschool teacher whether I should have him do one more year there or just send him to kindergarten and if needs be he can do kindergarten over. She told that it would be better that if he does need to repeat a year that kindergarten would be better. So I sent him and now that it is the end of the year I know that he improved a lot but he is still not up to where he should be. I talked with the vice principle and she said that she would talk with his teacher and go from there. Well today his teacher came up to me and said that it would be a good idea to keep him back. That extra year would be good for him plus he will still be in the same age group as everyone else.
Now that it is pretty much that he will be doing kindergarten again I can't help but feel guilty. I know what I am doing his right and will benefit him but still I can't help but feel guilty.
Anyone else had to go through this?
