It's not your concern.
My kids won't do kindy and will start school a year later than they would start prep.
I'd hate to feel lectured on a choice I've made after considerable research and thought.

Re: Do you say anything if you disagree with friends parenting?
Blissedout could you explain why you have decided not to start ur child in kindy or prep? - genuinely interested not having a go or anything. It hadnt occurred to me to not send DD to kindy etc so im really curious!

I havent read all the replies OP, but in answer to your question no, I dont say anything. My friend's son has terrible eating/dietary issues and I think they could do things differently, but its not my place to tell them that, so I say nothing.

Do you say anything if you disagree with friends parenting?
Talking to a friend about something I though was important 'at least' to discuss and bounce ideas of
Yeah. I know full well I can have thoughts about how they are doing things, I can comment, and they still have the right to choose what they want to/ think is best.
In your particular case : dsd was the same as your friends daughter. She was sooooo bright and smart, but was painfully lacking the skills to deal with school friends, teachers, the constant day to day school stuff. We didn't get it at the start, we felt very protective of dsd, that BM was wrong some how but in the end dsd has done soo well at school this year I can't imagine her going to school last year.

They do go to a school playgroup which increases to 3 short days a week during what would be their prep year.
