    Our current game of choice is UNO and we don't let him win - and we often start the playing wth a reminder that if he's a sore loser, no one will want to play with him. It's good for him!

    We have 4 kids similar in age so we usually let one of them win but try to mix it up which one does.
    I find having a few kids takes the worry out of stuff like this a bit, as in every competition, game, race, etc they each only have 25% chance of winning. We just try to help the littler ones sometimes so they aren't beaten every time.

    We play quite advanced board games with DD (7 years old) because we love board games that are really long and involved. We don't let her win but we do try to remind her of consequences of moves in the game to help her learn and stop her losing by too much.

    Nope, never have, he's always quite chilled if he wins or loses but I did notice at his party when they had games half the kids cried or sulked if they didn't win

    If they've lost like 4 or 5 times in a row, I'll let them win. But they aren't sore losers either so I don't mind letting them win occasionally if they're having a bad run!

    If the game is age appropriate...then nope don't let them win! Nothing worse than a sore loser! If it's not age appropriate I will coach to play in the best way. ..for example my DS has played UNO competently since about 4yo but still can't hold the cards in a fan properly...so we make allowances for that by not "cheating" because we know what cards he holds. He's great at UNO and often wins in a mixed age game...and is happy to lose too...

    Son and I play tug of war at the beach now and then with a towel, I let him win, and I am sure he knows it even now. He always has a huge smile on his face and laughing most of the time

    Glad to hear that it seems like Im doing the right thing not letting her win.

    Dont get me wrong, she wins her fair share. I also feel I can model the correct way to lose.

    After I made this post she lost in Mouse Trap. The losing mouse ended up banished and there were tears

    have never let her win.

    but DD is a PITA and a very sore loser. It has taken a long time to get her to the point were she understands and is ok with losing.
