I'm for skipping. I was skipped and my daughter was skipped. It didn't affect me one bit until maybe college when I still didn't know what I wanted to do in life. I wasted 4 years at a private overpriced university and haven't used anything I learned from my major once. good thing I got an academic scholarship or I would be bitter now. I don't know if that could be attributed to being skipped or just my own indecisiveness and fear of not wanting to change my major during my senior year. Side note, I was there on graduation in my cap and gown thinking ”what did I just do?” Lol, Good times...

Were any of you skipped?
 
I skipped a few grades. I was homeschooled for a few years and when I entered school, I was a year/two advanced.

I agree, in most cases.  Some really unsocialized children DO need it because they don't have any home training. 
 
Nothing wrong with skipping grades, but in MOST cases, it all catches up by high school. 
It depends on the maturity level and emotiomal level of the child.

Skip all the grades.
I would love for my child to graduate HS at 10.

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.

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.

it depends on if they are socially prepared for it, my cousin was smart enough, but wasn't mature enough
