As a parent I want my child to play well with others and be a good sport. Competitive by nature, Lily’s first organized game of musical chairs resulted in tears and talking back to her daycare teacher. I was mortified. Sure, we all hate to lose but I never expected such a strong reaction from my sweet little angel. While pleased with her competitive spirit, we wanted to teach her to lose gracefully and, most importantly, enjoy the competition whether she won or lost.
