I have been reading the Should you let a toddler win question and it appears to be a bad thing to let a child always win.
I have been playing the memory cards game (where you have to find two identical cards from a board of unknown ones) with my 3 years old nephew and his dad. I guess children have better visual memory and adults better associative one, but the thing is my nephew wins 95% of the time. We just can't possibly beat him at that game.
He has other games that are more based on luck and that we can play with equal chances, but sometimes he wants to play only the memory game as he is always winning.
It is not really a problem as his parents can attract his attention to other games but I was wondering if a situation like this is somewhat different to those described in the question I mentioned, as we don't cheat to let the kid win, he is just really good at it. Will it have the same consequences as letting a child win on purpose?
