Quoting .Colleen.:" So alot has changed there recently From what you described, he sounds ready intellectually. I ... [snip!] ... workout within a month you'll know it and you can make a decision as to what preschool would be right for him at that time. "


I mean my MIL is a principal at another school in our district ( she is retiring this year though) and she said she doesn't see ANYTHING different with him than every other kid she encounters.
Yeah he is a butt head at home with listening sometimes and I have to repeat myself for him to do things but he gets it usually. He does "big boy" things at home so I don't see WHY he acts like that at school KWIM? I ask him to clean up and he does it, I ask him to get dressed and he does it but sometimes he needs help with buttons and such.



I mean I was a really sensitive kid, I cried A LOT but I grew out of it.

He sounds fine mama. Don't stress. That can happen with new teachers too. I've had new teachers come part way through the yr and they freak out over some of the issues some kids have. It takes experience to see what is normal haha.

<blockquote><b>Quoting Asher and Haddie's Mommy:</b>" That depends. I've talked to a lot of teachers who say, even if they don't feel like the child is mature ... [snip!] ... just a behavior thing, they won't hold them back. It messes with their numbers. But that probably depends on where you live. "</blockquote>




Yeah it probably does depend. In MI they can't repeat Prek unless they have a special need or if they go private. And DK is technically kindergarten retention. They won't tell you that but it is.

<blockquote><b>Quoting Asher and Haddie's Mommy:</b>" Hahaha that's ridiculous! But yeah, that's a good way of looking at it. His due date was September 22 ...

So honestly If I were your sons teacher I'd tell you to do what felt right. And if holding him back feels right then do it. But if you wanted to send him I'd tell you to do that too. I would be indifferent, Kwim? But most parents we try to talk out of DK unless they reaaaaly need it then we try to talk them into it. Most parents get overly concerned about their child being ready. It's very normal so we don't like them to over think it haha

I just don't want to be a shitty mom :(
That's why I figured I would ask on here since so many ladies deal with similar stuff. I wasn't sure if it was just another 4 year old thing or if he needed to be evaluated or something.
Skye is puking today with a fever and now this, I'm just having a really stressful, upsetting day. :cry:

thank you.
Even my husband was like... "soooo they were saying how great he was doing at conferences and NOW all of a sudden he is like this? it doesn't make any sense"
I guess we're going to just try extra hard at home AND invest in some "bitter nailpolish" to see if we can kick this booger eating crap in the ass.
