1. I really agree with you. I kept Nicky back in Grade R and it was the best thing. He might have been academically ready but not emotionally and also his work pace is slow. Giving him more time was the best gift. He was born in June. I remember as a Grade One teacher distinctly being able to tell which month kids were born. Those in the beginning of the year had no problems and the one born in December should have been kept back.
