Go with your gut. We sent my son as a 4 year old turning 5 in the April. We checked everything off and even his PreSchool teacher said he was not on her radar for him to not attend school. Do I have any regrets? I followed closely the year after him and the group of kids and always felt I’d done the right thing for him. Only when all his mates were turning 18 in Year 12 and he was turning 17 did I start to see the difference – they all got their licenses, starting drinking. Do I regret it? No. We always knew it might be an issue and have been on top of it every year. We manage each issue and challenge related to him being younger. And he’s a fantastic young man… who I have to drive to work for a couple of months until he turns 18!!!
