I was supposed to skip one grade, but my parents wouldn't let me. I think I was fine in grades K-4 since I was able to go to older grades for reading, but I was pretty bored in 6-12 grade (except for AP calculus Angry).

My brother was supposed to skip two grades, but my parents wouldn't let me. He's a senior in college and is STILL bored. He doesn't get As in school, but that's because "I don't need an A to graduate." Ermm Too smart for his own good. Since at least the 3rd grade, he's been calculating the minimum score required to pass, and STOPS TAKING TESTS when he reaches a passing grade. Like pages of the test won't even be complete because he has a C+ and that's all he needs.

His behind should've been skipped like 10 grades. He's the most social person you'd ever meet, and he would've been fine.

not all states require kindergarten. a lot of people don't know this, but many states will let a child start 1st grade without ever attending kindergarten.

Yup.
I recall my mom saying you don't have to put kids in school until they're 7.

another state issue.

it's you have to be X age by Y date. fairly arbitrary, and many people get around it by starting in a private school.

I'd always finish my work "too soon" and start talking to the other students out of boredom and the teacher would punish me for it.Ermm In kindergarden they wanted me to skip twice to the 3rd grade. My mom asked if I wanted to and I said no. I was put in a program called Gifted/Quest with other kids ahead of their classmates. They asked me to skip again the next year and I told them no again.

I think parents should at least take into consideration whether or not the child wants to skip.

Depends on the child. My brother was smart enough to skip, but my parents were against it because he is easily influenced, and was already a known troublemaker.
