Experts agree that losing at sports, no matter how unending, can allow children to learn from failure.
The fear of losing and the ability to move on are important life skills that children need to develop in order to deal with negative experiences in life.
Some kids might not want to play a game or a sport if they think they’re not going to win. This is common in all countries, not just Singapore.
Sports offers the opportunity to intentionally lead children through the the heartbreak that comes with losing a game or race. Teaching kids to bounce back sets them up for success because they learn to develop resilience. Teaching them to gracefully accept victory or defeat builds character. These are basic tenets of sportsmanship.
Parents, coaches, teachers have to work hand in hand to instil in kids a love for the sport, as well as impart these important life lessons.
