Teach Children Can Accept Defeat


It’s okay to teach children compete in a variety of fields. But children should also learn to accept defeat because in later life, he will not necessarily always win. Here are some ways to teach children how to accept defeat:

• Teach empathy. At this age, children begin to be able to imagine themselves in the position of others. This is the basic capital of empathy. If guided, the child will understand, when you are in a winning position, he will feel happy when others are happy for him. Say, feel sad that’s only natural, but it does not need to protracted because there is no point.

• The right question. If you do not have time to watch matches at the match live, accusing the right questions when you meet with the child, for example, “Fun does not match?” Avoid asking questions like, “So who won?” Give talks positive tone, and praise his efforts, what any results he brought back.

• Do not always succumb. often parents deliberately relented when playing with the children. In fact, that children can become ‘experts’ to accept defeat well, he needs experience many times being the loser.

• Enterprises, skills, and have fun. Encourage the child to understand, although titles can boast, there are other things that are also important and can make us happy when following the match. That is, learning trying to get what they want, exercises to hone skills, and having fun! Moreover, when the match was followed in groups, where win or lose borne together.

• Give an example. When you play with the children in the home, such as basketball or monopoly, teach him how to accept victory and defeat by example. When you lose, show happy faces, and give congratulations to the winners. When you win, show that the winners should not brag about himself and denounced those who lose.
