Is it a good idea to let your kids win ALL the time?
Obviously when they are toddlers its nice to build up their confidence and sense of pride. But what about when they are older? Is ok to let them win board games all the time, and going one step further, what about in schools or in organized sports when "everyone is a winner". What age do you start teaching them its ok to lose, not everyone wins all the time, the point is to try hard etc etc etc. Do you think that it creates a false reality if they win all the time and the first time they actually lose, will crush them more so?
