Thank you. We have talked to the teachers And they all feel it could do more harm than good. As do I. My husband however feels in the long run it will be better for them. Just so frustrating to be on separate pages with such a big decision.

You haven't really given much information.



You know your children better than us. Maybe talk to their teacher as well. I was one of the youngest in my year going through school and never had any problems. If they are advanced already you may do them harm holding them back because they could get bored.
