I was told my son is delayed because he is a 17 year old Junior.  He will be 18 when he graduates.  While I know he's not delayed, the comment was so asinine that I have to see how old other kids are.

So...

My kids are homeschooled so that could go either way. I was 17 when I was a Junior.

That lady is either bad at coming up with insults or just really misinformed.

I saw what she wrote...its great her kids graduated at 16 but thats early, not the norm.

I was 18 when I graduated and my dd will be too. Everyone I knew was 18 with the exception of a few who would turn 18 in June or July.

One will be 17. One will definitely be 18. And the youngest depends on her ability to function in school.... she might be 18.

 Most people graduate at 18.

I did and so will my kids.

My oldest will be 19 (he was held back a year)... my second oldest will also be 19 (he was also held back a year) and my youngest will be 18, because he has to wait a year to start Kindergarten because of his birthday.

 Three will be 17, they have sumer birthdays, three will be 18 one winter and two springs. The other is a toss up. She is May so it would depend on the date they pick :)

he will turn 18 November of his senior year

We chose to hold him out a year, he could have turned 17 his senior year (he is 7 right now)
