My son will turn 5 in June and I am really torn whether to send him to Kindergarten in August or keep him back to go to Pre-K. I am struggling with the fact that when you figure it out.....he won't be 16 until the beginning of his Junior year -- definitely would make him the younger of his classmates.. He is a very busy boy - loves preschool and always wants to go play outside with friends. But Preschool teacher said he seems to be a follower. Acts shy when she asks a question, etc. He's NOT like this at home, but don't want to socially set him back by sending him too early. Please share your experiences/knowledge as I'd really like to hear what others considered when trying to make such important decisions...
