Try, Try Again

One mom praises her son for choosing math over recess.

My fourth-grader, Brendan, has struggled with math ever since it got beyond simple counting. After he failed a recent test, his teacher gave him the chance to retake it during recess. Brendan chose to stay inside to retake the test — and scored a perfect 100!

My husband and I praised him more for seizing the opportunity to retake the test than for his final score. It was a very proud moment for us.
