Bouncing off the coddling thread, have we discussed this yet? I'm wondering what other moms think. In our area, many parents (particularly parents of boys) are holding their kindergarten-eligible boys (5 YOS) back from kindergarten until they are six. Depending on who you talk to, they are doing it to make their child a leader, one of the smartest in the class, or to give them an advantage in sports. What do you think of this trend?
