np: IMO, putting aside specific issues like delays, the main reason to do this would be a child who is not ready to start Kindergarten when they normally would, either academically or socially. now that Kindergarten is full day and in many cases quite academic, some kids are just not ready to deal with that at just or not yet 5yo. so starting K may set them up to be behind and struggling from their first year in school and many parents would prefer to avoid that. i had a friend who felt that this was the case for her dd but in nyc, she didn't have the option, and in the end, her dc ended up being held back after K - a terrible year of struggle and lots of tutoring. my friend said she KNEW that her dd wasn't ready for K and it pains her what a terrible school experience she had (in what is supposed to be a nice year) and that now she then felt the stigma of all the other kids moving on to 1st and she repeating K. her dd is now in late elementary years and while she is on track academically, she continues to see herslef as not smart, dislikes school, etc. [ Reply | More ]

the youngest kids, who barely make the age cutoff but are enrolled anyway, ultimately end up on top—not their older classmates. When a group of economists followed Norwegian children born between 1962 and 1988, until the youngest turned eighteen, in 2006, they found that, at age eighteen, children who started school a year later had I.Q. scores that were significantly lower than their younger counterparts. Their earnings also suffered: through age thirty, men who started school later earned less. [ Reply | More ]

Repeatedly, the studies have found exactly that—older kindergarten students perform better on tests, receive better teacher evaluations, and do better socially. But then, something happens: after that early boost, their performance takes a nosedive. By the time they get to eighth grade, any disparity has largely evened out—and, by college, younger students repeatedly outperform older ones in any given year. [ Reply | More ]

FWIW, two of dc's close friends were redshirted (public). One was almost pathologically shy, and the extra year gave him time to gain a little more maturity. It worked out fine.

DOn't freak out, but do your research. I think the vaccine schedule is problematic in many ways, but I do not think that vaccines cause autism per se. I did spread them out as much as possible and delayed the live ones as long as possible, but still had dc fully vax'd to start preschool at 3yo. I would have split up the MMR if I could have, but one component is no longer available on its own. I also requested a blood titer before hte MMR booster at 4-5yo to see if booster was needed - and of course, it wsa needed only for 1, but since that one was not available on its own, had to give the whole thing. There are lots of books that will educate you without being totally anti-vax - recognizing that vaccines serve a purpose and might be necessary, but there are still many imperfections and controversies and lack of long term research.

You need to gradually just cut out that nap and push bed time forward. That's a long time for 3.5 years to be napping. [ Reply | More ]

I am so jealous your kids sleep that much. My DD turned 3 last week, and hasn't taken a nap in months. She gets 10 hours of sleep a night, that's it. [ Reply | More ]

I wouldn't wean, I'd let them nap up until the time they start and then they will figure out if they do a shorter nap before or after or stop napping. [ Reply | More ]

'What Color is Your Parachute?' is the classic find-a-career book. It's been updated for 2014 so may be worth checking out. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] The police are correct, crime is up and we are heading to the bad old days if something isn't done about it. Aggressive panhandling, bums sleeping on sidewalks in front of co-ops on UES, "doorman" at banks... 34 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I lived in the city in the 80s with my parents and I remember this when we used the ATMs. Also the guys with the squeegees to wash your windows at all the stop lights on the ways out of Manhattan. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, this is true in my neighborhood. So many homeless, some of whom appear schizophrenic and off their meds. One in particular is a very big guy, aggressive and scary. [ Reply | More ]

pan-handling is actually a 911 situation! i tried to call 311 to report a group of vagrant types who were grouped outside with signs asking for $- and they transferred me to 911! [ Reply | More ]

If that is true (and I don't believe it is) it explains why the 911 system is so overloaded. [ Reply | More ]

This reminds me of that graduation speech that made the email rounds in the late 90s, with the line something like, "Live in Los Angeles once in your life, but leave before you get too soft. Live in New York City once in your life, but leave before you get too hard." [ Reply | More ]

I love the mentality of the NYPD. Crime is up. In that period they were told to stop abusing a system which, by their own numbers, had a negligible effect on crime stats. The fault is the mayor's. [ Reply | More ]

There is really no need to panic. The price of NYC real estate continues to go up. A few homeless people here and there won't scare the rich out of Manhattan. [ Reply | More ]
