5 Year Old Sore Loser


Our 5yr old is a terrible looser. It can be a card game, a sport, how many fish have been caught.....anything. If it happens to be with a group of kids and he doesn't "win" the prize or whatever he will tuck his head and walk off to pout or even get upset and cry. Its one thing when it happens at home but in a play group or with a team is even worse. I've obviously tried talking to him and he knows its not acceptable behavior. I understand if there is a prize to be won and he is not the winner it upsets him but its how he acts that I don't think is ok. He's been sent to his room, for example, after loosing a board game and getting mad. Should I start disciplining for each time it is done or use tickets???
