Is competition good for kids? It’s a subject that has divided opinion for years. Some would argue that it encourages a child to excel in today’s fiercely competitive world, a world where we compete for everything, be it a job or a even a house.
Competition is good for children. It is quite natural for people to judge themselves against others. It can inspire them to work harder on their goals, so in that respect competition is quite healthy. In a supportive environment it can also teach a child to accept failure without losing self-esteem. It instills resilience and allows children to build their spirits so they never give up.
