In the same idea that I should be grateful but... I've got one who races to sit nearest me on the carpet and stands nearest in PE - I wonder around to the other side once they are settled. Drives me mad. My strategy with the whingers Miss Miss Miss is reply with a question, "do you need to show me that?" "Did you need to tell me that?" "Do I need to know that?" after a few days they get the message. Oh and there's always "listen now, if you don't hear me now you can practise listening in your playtime - ready?" Sound like a right cow of a teacher! - They love me really!
