Ready for Kindergarten?

My son Grant is 4 and will be 5 on March 31st. Although his birthday makes him eligible to go to kindergarten per school rules, I have my concerns about whether he's up for it. And with kindergarten roundup at the end of this month, it's brought this topic to the top of my mind.

I've asked friends, family members and even researched various blogs and parenting sites online and they all have differing opinions.

Some sources say boys are more immature and shouldn't go to kindergarten until they are turning 6. Some sites say that they need to be more emotionally than academically ready. And the opinions go on and on.

What are your thoughts on this? I would love to have your input on this subject.
