Starting Kindergarten

Question:  My son turns five in May. Even though he is old enough to start kindergarten this fall, many have advised me to consider holding my son back a year stating both academic and social benefits. Does this seem to be the trend right now? I believe he is a normal five-year-old boy. On one hand, I don’t want to hold him back if he is ready. Yet on the other, I don’t want to regret later the opportunity to give him the advantage of another year to mature. Help?
