Losing gracefully, how old is a good age for them to learn.
DS is almost four. For Christmas he got Candy Land and Hi Ho Cherry-O. We introduced them to the games by playing them until we all "win," so he could get a good grasp on the rules, and honestly I am the one who is always still at cupcake commons or has all her apples on the tree come the end of the game (I suck so bad at those games for some reason,) so he really does win, we just dont stop the game unless I am REALLY behind.
We want to introduce him to losing though, DH was just teaching him tic-tac-toe and he lost a couple times and wanted to mark the board up until he won too, DH said no, only one can win, and DS decided he didnt want to play anymore. He didnt get upset, just "I don't want to play anymore"
I dont want to "coddle" him, but is he old enough for the cold hard truth that he will lose, and he cant just stop doing something because he isnt the winner? Should we be pushing him more?
