    It is amazing but the students that need to be retained are usually very happy when they hear that they are going to stay in kindergarten again. They seem to sense that they stil belong there. I would have the mom bring it up after school is out. she could tell the child that he/she still has some things to learn in kdg and that he is going to go back next year.

    Wait to see if he asks about the other children and then you say that they are going on to first grade because they are ready to learn there. You are going to meet new friends (try to connect with some over summer break) and practice letters etc.. whatever the child struggled with this year.

    Kindergarten students really do adapt quickly to new children and he will make friends.

    Good Luck
