- six-year-old children often need the games developing skills of communication. If these skills are insufficiently developed, he can become reserved that leads to children`s neurosises;

- in six years the pupil, unlike his seven-year-old schoolmate, should switch from study to game from time to time, and during a lesson such opportunity is, as a rule, not provided.

School practice

of the Teacher, recognizing all risk factors, nevertheless note that acceleration made the business, and six-year-old first graders most often do not have these problems.

A lot of things also depend on school and on the teacher, and the question actually can stand not to give / not to give and what to choose " school;. Problems can not be just because the child will fall into good hands. And here with other teacher they can quite arise.

Ways of the choice of future class teacher for the son or the same daughters, as at the choice of school: personal impressions of acquaintance to it and domestic rating - what is told about each teacher by parents of those who already at him study and disaccustomed.
