I'm trying to make a decision and wanted to have some input from different mothers.
My son will turn 5 in June of 2004. In the state of FL children can start grade school at that age. For some obscure reason, I think it's too early for him to start school. Hubby thinks i'm crazy!
I don't know what I'm afraid of for him. For some reason I just think that they'll beat him up in school and I'm terrorized for him.
He'll be attending a nice public school but I'm still worried. I had a friend that use to teach at his future school and she said it's a good school.
I'm also worried because it will be my last year in nursing school and I wonder if i'll have the time to help with homework. Hubby will help but that always said than done. I value education alot and didn't realize that until later in life. I don't want my son to miss out just because he doesn't have the proper education that this society request. Also by the time his generation finishes high school a Masters degree will probably be the norm.
Should I keep him back a year? and send him at 6 years old. Since his B'day is in the summer he won't be that behind.. Or should I just send him? The director of his pre-school thinks I'm crazy
I'm so worried and confused
Thanks to anyone who replies... Sorry it was so long had to let it out
