You are usually more advanced physically, emotionally, and in your ability to grasp difficult concepts. The advantage I see is that my kids are able to learn concepts more quickly and are able to easily maintain above grade level work. This means reduced homework time and makes life easier when we go on vacation or take a day off from school because their schoolwork is easy to makeup. Alternatively, you could argue I've made life too easy for kids and they've not had to struggle. I have them in sports and no matter what level they're at or how good they are, they still have to challenge themselves to get better.
