I know I'm still 2.5 years away from DS going to Kindergarten but several of my friends with older children are talking about holding their children who will be turning 5 in the next month or two at home another year instead of sending them to school in late August. My friends say their son's "are not ready" or "mature enough" for school. When i was kid, when you hit the magic number 5 you went to school and that is our plan for DS at this moment. I guess one thing that really makes me scratch my head is the fact we are more than 7 months away from these kids going to school so that is a lot of time for them to mature a little more but I guess their mom's know best. Is this a new thing? Just curious.
