School would like to skip our K student son at least one grade (parent-teacher-gifted teacher) conference last night suggested 2nd grade, at the initial meeting it was 1st grade, so it keeps getting worst.) and we have already told them no. Our problem with this is that, in middle school, when all the hormone bombs go off, he will still be a little boy.
The program that we authorized after testing him allows him to be pulled out into 2nd grade for reading, writing and math; and into the 2nd grade gifted class. Socially, he does very well with the older kids (he is a bit of stage-hog, I have no idea where he gets it from). He is not a shy kid, and is pretty athletic. However, we are concerned about socio-sexual dynamics in the future should we allow him to be advanced.
What has been the long-term results of advancing your son a grade or so?
Has anyone here had a son that allowed their son to skip a year or three, and how did it go, through all the stages?
On the other hand, if he graduates early we can forcibly emancipate his unruly ass and kick him out early.
