When children are capable of working at much higher levels than their current grade, it may be suggested that they skip a grade. Usually, this is presented as a solution only when the school doesn't have special programs for advanced or gifted students. A number of factors may influence your decision. For example, what grade is your child in now? How old are they, compared to others in their class? How mature is the youngster, socially and emotionally? Moving ahead tends to have more impact in later grades, when long-term friendships have been formed. Also, what will happen as your son or daughter gets older, and is around children who may be more grown up? There are both pros and cons to moving ahead. Yet, it's harmful for a bright child to be stuck in a boring situation. One alternative might be to have the child attend certain classes in a higher level, or even at a nearby junior high. That way, he or she could stay with their classmates, while getting more challenging instruction for the subjects in which they excel. Ask your school administrators, and other parents of gifted children, for more suggestions on meeting your child's advanced educational needs.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
