Your local schools should have tests that your child can take to see if he or she is academically ready. However, many children are academically ready, but not emotionally or socially ready. You can talk to a counselor or a friend about your child's social skills too, but trust your instincts. You know your child better than anyone and if you don't think that she is emotionally or socially ready she probably isn't. Another good thing to do is to look at your child's birth date. If he or she is going to be the youngest in the class, it may be better to wait a year. Sometimes waiting that extra year is all a child needs to be more confident about school.
