As a mom of a September baby, I have mixed feelings. With the trend of hoidlng kids back, sometimes there is as much an 18 month difference in one grade, which is too much. Also, the kindergarten curriculum is looking more and more like the 1st curriculum 20 years ago.However, on the flip side, that means kids who don't have the means to go to preschool will be even that much more behind and another year home with grandma watching TV is another year wasted. So I guess if we're going to push kindergarten cutoff to September 1st, then let's make sure there is such thing as universal pre-K. Essentially, we're moving from 13 years of schooling (k-12) to 14 (pre-K to 12).

This really depends on how old your child is - without knowing that, I can't even begin to make an educated guess. But I'd start by asking their teacher if they are "on-track" with other students in his or her class. Otherwise, tools like this one (KinderIQ) offer a good selection of tools that help parents know areas that their children excel at and areas that they might need a little help with. Good luck!

If your child is in kindergarten, I know that many kindergarten teachers attempt to teach counting to 20.

I start with my children at a young age with counting steps but I think if they know at least how to count and recognize up to the number twenty that's great.

My son is almost 5 and he can count to 100 with a little assistance. For instance, he may need help remembering what is the next set of 10; like 20, 30, or 40 and so on, but can then say 31 through 39 by himself.
