My lil’ boy is about to turn 8. When we do something competitive, like running in the backyard, I let him win. I feel the bitter taste of defeat is an acquired, grown-up taste that he doesn’t need to get from Daddy. But as he gets older, how long do I let him win?
I want to teach him to be humble in victory and gracious in defeat. I also don’t want him thinking Daddy is a slowpoke who can’t do anything. How do you all go about teaching your yoots about winning and losing?
