My 6 year old recently participated in a basketball camp. It's a 4 day, 2 hours a day thing. At the end of the session, they play a little game with the four teams at the camp. If his team doesn't win, he'll walk off the court crying. Today he didn't want to go because he was afraid his team would lose and he didn't want to lose.
Any advice on how to handle this? Of course we talk to him about it's not about the winning and as long as he has fun it doesn't matter if he wins and loses. He enjoys playing and is pretty decent at it so I don't want him to quiet playing.
Think this is a phase or symptom of being an only child?
Any thoughts or insight would be appreciated.
