Most of them are first born or only children and their natural wiring towards competition can drive a teacher crazy! Instead of trying to stifle their exemplary leadership skills, I use it for my advantage. Not to the point of pitting one against the other, but helping them channel their wiring in a positive light and turn toward themselves and being the best that they can be.
Each subject we discuss I will give them each an objective, not the same objective, but one that is tailored to what I know each one can give me according to his or her potential.
