I have played many, many games with Thing 1 this week. I’ve discovered that he is highly competitive and doesn’t like to lose very much. He’s not really a sore loser, and he doesn’t usually get upset when he loses. But whenever I win, he insists on playing again. And again. And again. Until he wins, then we can stop.
I don’t let him win, but I find myself hoping I lose. Not because I don’t think it’s good for him to experience losing. But because I don’t want to keep playing.
What about you?
