Just wanted to thank everyone again for the input and insight into grade-skipping... we talked to DD's teachers, who've been consulting with her principal, and despite their general feelings about grade-skipping (they're not fans), they feel it's the best option for DD. One of the teachers said, "As an educator, I'm really philosophically opposed to grade-skipping. For A, though, I would do it." DH and I have done a lot of thinking and soul-searching, and I think, assuming DD is on board with it, we're going to follow the recommendation of her teachers, whom we love and trust. So she'll skip first grade next year and go straight to 2nd grade. Ikes.This has been one of the most challenging parenting decisions we've had to make so far, so I really appreciate all the different opinions. Thanks again!
