"If you are not big enough to lose then you are not big enough to win"
Victory is sweet but how do u teach playmanship to toddlers. When I take my baby out in the park I see lot of toddlers in power struggle or being mean if they don't win something .So how do you teach toddlers who are yet unknown of their reactions the spirit of playmanship? Competitiveness is not an unhealthy trait but sharing and learning to lose gracefully should be taught early on.
Winning is not always being the best but also teaching the kids that there's a room for improvement if you lose. No denying that we live in a competitive world but teaching kids resilience NOW set kids up for success because they then learn that failure isn't the end of the world ! .Failure is an opportunity to give your best shot AGAIN!
Mommies what you think? How do you teach playmanship to your kids ? How difficult is to raise mentally strong individuals in a world that's super competitive ?
