10. Thought-Provoking Question of the Week: You have a young child (or just babysit one), who is about 6-7 years old, and you like to play various games with him/her. Do you: let the child win sometimes to help improve his/her self-esteem, or play normally, in order to teach the child that we can’t always win in life?
I think it is important to give the child some encouragement by letting him or her win sometimes. You can’t expect a child that age to stay interested in something s/he keeps losing. That is not to say that you can’t play to stretch the child’s abilities, or that you have to lose every single game. Just let the child have the joy of winning sometimes.
