How to help your child with winning and losing

How many of us have let our little ones win to make them feel good about themselves? Or just to avoid a major meltdown? Guilty!

But it turns out that’s actually not doing them any favours in the long run. Because losing (or losing gracefully) takes practice and children need a safe environment in which to learn.

Giving them opportunities to win and lose in a play environment, will help your child build confidence and resilience says Genevieve Muir from Connected Parenting. By allowing children to explore the world through play, you are providing them a safe space to build understanding, to test limits and of course, fail.

Here Gen shares her top tips for helping your child to win at losing.
