Anyone dealing or have dealt with the recommendation of young 5 Kindergartener repeating?

I am at a loss of which direction to go -- have her repeat or have her move on to the first grade. I am concerned with the stigma and other effects that come with holding back a child. She was 4 when she started Kindergarten and is considered a "young" five - the youngest in her class.



Love to hear from anyone who has gone through this difficult decision and how it turned out.



Thanks,



Lori

repeating kindergarten is nothing there won't be any stigma she will make new friends in her new class and she will probably be one of the stronger students in the class instead of the weaker ones.
