My thoughts, opinions, and whatnots.

I read this article and I have to admit that I don’t agree with holding back a kid in school just because the parents wants the kid to be more advanced than his or her classmates or because the kid was born in the later months. The way that I look at it is that just because the kid was born “late,” that doesn’t mean that the kid is totally incapable of keeping up with his or her “earlier” born classmates. I mean, I have friends who were born “late” but were able to keep up with everybody else. Anyway, personally, I don’t agree with holding a kid back a year to give him or her an advantage over his or her classmates.

  1. Usually it’d be embarassing to be a year older than the classmates.
