    We held our DS back a year because of a severe speech delay but he is also a very tall boy to begin with (97th percentile) so he is going to tower over the other preppies next year. I don't understand why height would be a consideration in school commencement.

    Default Tallest and youngest or Tallest and oldest

    Kids can teased for all different reasons. My husband was extremely tall and skinny growing up, as well as being very intelligent. Also his parents couldn't speak English. So as u can imagine school was not particularly fun for him (mostly high school). But he told me he always got by because he was good at sport and was accepted in that group of kids.

    At the end of the day, the most important lesson for kids to learn is to accept themselves, and as my mother always told me.. To feel sorry for those people who make fun of me or others, as they must just be really jealous or have very unfortunate lives themselves. And she was right.

    Default Tallest and youngest or Tallest and oldest

    I'd be more concerned about social skills then being the youngest, oldest, shortest, tallest. My son towers over his whole class and my 4 year old is the size of my 7 year olds friends! Haha size isn't the issue
