My 5-year-old son cries when he loses a game. He gets impatient and throws tantrums and beats me when he loses. The same thing happens when he plays with his friends also.
I have tried to teach him by playing games which I myself and my son lose/win alternately, but to no avail. The moment he loses more than once, he cries badly again.
I even tried losing continuously and throwing tantrums and the following dialogue ensued:
Me: I will not play with you since you always win.
He: It's OK, you should win on your own and don't cry.
The moment he loses a game he quits.
How should I teach him sportsmanship and teach him losing is OK? How should I teach him it's OK to lose and losing graciously?
