I regret not redshirting my child
My 4th grader (June birthday) is a good student but she definitely is lacking in maturity and does badly in tests. Every year her winter conference is the same, and every year she spends January onwards catching up. I fear that this will get worse as the pressure increases in middle school.
I didn't know red-shirting was a thing until after we enrolled her in school. Now I wish we had. It pains me to know she would have been fine if she was in 3rd grade this year instead of 4th.
It's too late now, but I wondered if there is a way for us to support her now and in the future.
Anyone else feel the same?
