Why Are First Graders So Competitive?
Newsflash, parents: First graders aren't exactly the most selfless creatures in the playground jungle. They're inherently self-centered because they simply don't have the capacity to consider others just yet. Don't be surprised when your little one climbs on another kid's shoulders on his race to the top. While compassion comes with age and wisdom, you can make sure your child is in tune with others by constantly pointing out different emotions and using "feeling" words around the house.
