I held back my son. Best decision I ever made. Giving him that advantage has already paid off huge and I'm sure it will continue to do so. Just saying...
Congrats on stunting his social development and taking him away from his friends. Getting to play lax at that D3 school with a 1050 avg SAT vs. the one he would have attended with a 1030 avg. will make it all worthwhile.
you know what they say about Assumptions, right? How do you know I took him away from his friends and stunted his social development? Pre-K hold back pal. Pretty sure he doesn't even remember little Ricky from his first Pre-K class. But he's been buddies with Big Mike since his 2nd Pre-K class. So he's just fine.
Being the biggest/fastest/strongest/smartest certainly helps. Honestly not sure why you wouldn't do it. You know, unless you can't afford to give that gift to your son. I get it. Somebody's got to work down at the docks. Appreciate it!
