Today I found out that my son will be the ONLY boy in his Kindergarten class. He attends a really small Lutheran school there's only 52 students in the whole school K-8. There will be 7 girls in the class, I'm not sure how I feel about  him to the only boy, my husband seems to think it's OK. what do u think ladies??

Aww poor guy. Does he get along with girls? My son was in a preschool class of 24 students and only 7 boys. But he gets along well with girls because his best friend is a girl.

Is it the only kindergarten class in the school?If not,I'd see about having him switched.Surely he's not the only kindergarten aged boy in the school!

I would definitely go see if I could move him to a different room. Talk to the principal and be kind but firm.

Does he have other male playmates like friends or cousins?  I don't think it's a huge issue.  Are there other school options if it were to really bother you?

He does not have any boy cousins, only a little sister lol,but he does have boys that he play with but they all go to public school.

Speaking as a mom with a K age son, you know boys just play differently with each other than they do with girls.  when they are 2 or 3 it's not an issue but eventually they just want to do "boy" things sometimes.  i see your concern but if he has other male friends that he gets social time with, i think he'll be fine.  I think it's important for him to have that exposure but it doesn't necessarily have to be at school.    Make a point to get those regular play dates in and/or enroll him in a "boy" type acitivity.

He will most likely be fine.  THe best suggestion I can think of is see if there are any meetup groups near you where you can have your child meet up with some guy friends his age.  He will probably be fine from spending so much time with girls, but he may need some "guy time" too :) :).  I presume that's the only K class?  If not, check out the other one and see if he can swtich.
