5-Year-Old Is Sore Loser of Titanic Proportion!


My 5 year old son is a terribly sore loser. Everytime he loses he either sobs uncontrollably or stomps of fuming mad. He is the oldest of 4 siblings (in case that is relevant). My husband and I have no patience for sore losers. We tell him to cut it out, that he won’t be allowed to play if he cries when he loses, no kids want to play with someone who can’t lose, etc. When he calms down we explain to him that losing is apart of life, no one can win all the time, God calls us to be gracious when we lose/don’t get our way, etc. He is going into kindergarten and I want to squash this. He is generally very well behaved, we have done the ticket system, he has 3 tickets and it is rare he loses them all.
