I would also say it is too late to put him back into kindergarten. I think if it'd been done in the first 6 weeks it might have worked but we're halfway through the year. I'd also argue it is too early to really know if retention was the best choice for the brother. Many students do well for a few years after retention due to the fact some of what they are learning is review. The real test will be if he continues doing well into late elementary, middle school, etc. I'd also argue you won't know for a while what damage it will do to his self esteem.
