I learned about the 4 sons a little differently

At our second Seder, it was mentioned that we all start out as the child who doesn't know to ask (babies), grow into the simple child as youngsters, move into the role of the Rasha (potentially) by becoming a rebellious teenager and finally as we gain knowledge and become wise, we are able to be the chaham.
