5 year old : best at everything, tball, feelings

Question

Thank you for the column written May 21st about the "child's feelings." I have told my son on almost a daily basis that how he feels about a certain chore or punishment does not matter or change anything. I do however thank for a job well done when he does his chores. Is this praising his ability. Also he plays t-ball and it seems that he thinks he is the "best player on the team." This is due to his paw-paw's words of "great job" even when he did poorly. I informed him that he does his best and that is good, but for some reason he feels he's "the best." How do I gently remove this feeling he has that he's best?
