I think we are together on this one.
I agree with you with the caveat that I don’t believe that very young children need to be exposed to the extremes of competition, but team building and family bonding type experiences. Increased bonding between a young child and primary caregivers (parents) produces more confident adults who can cope better with the stresses of competition.
I think that kids between 8 and 12 are just starting to be at the stage where they can get that life’s tough and not fair. I think that it is significant that kids get more competitive at high school ages.
And yes, my response is all about what I think.
