Did you sit down with your family and watch the Big Game? Getting involved with sporting events are a great way to enjoy some quality time with your kids and teach them about the healthy benefits of competition. Even if you’re pulling for opposing sides, you can show your children how to properly behave once the game is over, that though competition is good for fueling progress, it should not affect self-esteem or be the cause of jeering.
To promote the educational benefits of competition, seen as a motivator to your child’s progress as opposed to a person who needs to be defeated, we gathered some resources for you to use. Check out our list of 5 Toys to Encourage Healthy Competition:
