12. Suicide? Really?
I never heard that before. Sounds a bit much to me too.

I have heard that boys develop a bit later than girls, so I think that might also be affecting his preschool teacher's opinion to keep him at a pre-K level for another year. MG Jr. can sit quietly and be studious pretty well--he's just a bit behind on the physical muscle development that allow him to perform fine motor skills like coloring and cutting. It is purely a physical thing. But he did make a comment about how he didn't like to cut "because I'm not good at it", so I can see that affecting his self esteem. I have to take that into consideration.

Congrats on your ToadKid! You must be very proud! :D
