Emotional Development: How to Help Build Your Child's Character After Defeat!

Setting examples for our children is important. And showing them how to accept defeat or repudiation, with grace and dignity, is crucial for their emotional development.

  • First, identify emotions that surface due to the incident.
  • Then, visualize how it would look if the circumstances were opposite.
  • Next, keep perspective and control of anger or rage, understanding that it's OK to feel it, but not act on it in a negative way, either to one's self or others.
  • Finally, be open to the concept of change and acceptance and avoid the precipitous of civil unrest.

By showing our children how to remain graceful in any situation helps build a future of emotionally balanced and self-loving future adults.
