I am certified PK-8 and Spec Ed.

Good luck!
I repeated Kinder for these exact reasons. I wish I'd did another round of preK instead but either way, I def see the benefits in holding him back.

He is thriving there. It was sad the first few days he would look at the teacher and ask if he was bad..She said it broke her heart that he was possibly being told every day how bad he was and not being recognized for anything good. He isn't having any of the issues he had at the other school. When we had a conference (and he has been there a lil over a month) they said he is just like all of the other active 4 yr olds in the class. They said they think that the previous school had unrealistic expectations of him and were pushing him away instead of working through the problem. I am so grateful this passed or at least isn't as bad. I can't believe what a difference just changing daycare or teachers were. I was terrified at the change he had been at the other school for years and was very comfortable but thankfully he did great at his new "big boy school
Good! I hope he continues to improve. Thanks for the update!
