Second Verse, Same as the First

Jacob, First Grade
"But, Mom, why should I raise my hand?  The teacher doesn't always call on me and then someone else just gives the wrong answer.  I can just answer it right the first time."
Claire, Preschool
"I don't want to take turns answering.  I know the right answer so I should just tell everyone."
I rarely compare my children, but there are moments that just scream for comparison.  And those moments are generally followed by a few deep breaths.
