Have any of you thought about red-shirting? Do any of you have strong opinions on red-shirting?
For those of you knew to the term, it is when parents deliberately hold their children back for an extra year before starting kindgarten. Some studies have shown it to give children an advantageous school experience, due to the fact they may be more physically/socially/emotionally mature than their younger peers (see here )
I'm pretty sure I'm in favor of red-shirting...and in favor of parent's having the choice to red-shirt if they please. As to whether we'll do it for sure, I'm not certain. Laszlo's birthday is early in the school year, so he'll already be a bit older...it really depends on him.
