Believe me it is worse if you start your child too early. Two of mine started school at almost the cut-off point for that year and one struggled big time all through schooling and the other was held back in grade 3 and couldn’t work out why when there wasn’t a problem with performance at school that age restricted going to the next level with schoolfriends. End result of that was not trying for the balance of school years. Such a pity as school should have been a great fun place to learn.
