As of mother of three, I dealt with my fair share of anxiety over when to send each of my children to kindergarten. The cut-off date certainly played a critical role, but so did their actual birth date, their sex, the advice of their preschool teachers, and yes, my gut instinct. Now, new research says when you send them also plays a role in their perhaps misdiagnosis of ADHD. ADHD is certainly very real and deserves proper treatment, but we parents must continue to be vigilant in making the best decisions for our children.
