Coping with emotions when experiencing a defeat

Do not devalue the child’s emotions, whether it is victory or loss. The position “it’s just a game, it’s not serious” devalues ​​the activity that the child is engaged in and reduces their motivation. Why do something if it’s pointless?

Let the child experience different emotions – both positive and negative. You should not fight sadness, disappointment, resentment, or anger – it is better to help your child express these emotions correctly. This will bring much more benefits than trying to “stop the suffering of a kid.” Do not let them hold back tears if they want to cry, and help them cope with aggression and anger by engaging them in sports, or letting them play with anti-stress toys.
