“Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.”
– Italian proverb
Reinforcing Healthy Competition
Competition is a natural part of life. We are faced with competition for jobs, a mate, and even the best parking spot at the store. Approaching these situations with grace is an important way to model good relationship skills–especially to our children. Often people get angry during competition, but try to be mindful of how this frustration is unleashed. No one wants to be on the receiving end of either a sore loser’s lack of composure or a boastful winner’s lack of grace. Don’t gloat to your friend that your daughter can run faster or read at a higher level than her child. Remember, after the basketball game concludes she is still your friend and you don’t want a moment of hot-headedness to interfere with what really matters–your relationship. Modesty can go a long way!
