I came across the article, When Parents Push to Repeat a Grade (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704164904575421231093950498.html?m od=WSJ_LifeStyle_Lifestyle_5), today in the Wall Street Journal. The piece talks about how more parents are holding their kids back in order to encourage their mental, social and physical development.

I'm curious to hear from other parents. Did you have your kids repeat a grade? Where do you stand if your kid is on the borderline of the age requirement? Did it make a difference?
