For The Love…Keep Score And Teach Your Child To Lose

  • It’s important to raise a confident child who believes they are valuable and capable.
  • It’s also important to raise a child who can deal with loss and disappointment in a healthy way.
  • Put your child in situations where…
    • someone is keeping score.
    • not every person gets a trophy or award.
    • they will win some and lose some.
    • they will disagree with the refs or judges.
  • It’s okay if your child walks away from a sports season, musical class, etc. and realizes they are not good at that activity…or someone else is better than they are.
  • A child who knows how to deal with loss and disappointment becomes an adult who knows how to deal with loss and disappointment.
  • Loss and disappointment do not discriminate.
