My son just turned 5 this February and is in preschool. He gets help with some speech issues and has some emotional immaturity. His teacher gave the suggestion of holding him back another year. He is smart academically, but has trouble socially. I can understand holding back summer babies, but he is born in February. I can see the advantages of holding him back, but I guess I feel guilty about him being so old. In a way I feel like pushing him forward and maybe he will rise to the occasion and if not they will hold him in kindergarten. What do you guys think?
