Timothy got 3rd Place!!!

This morning was Timothy's karate tournament. Our philosophy to combat Timothy's OBSESSION with winning is...give him every possible chance to learn how to be a good loser. So we signed that boy up for this tournament, assuming he would lose. Everyone would get a participant trophy, but the top 4 would receive bigger trophies and Timothy was convinced he was getting one. We were preparing for the worst, but lo and behold...

He won!!!

3rd out of 16!!!

Talk about an excited little boy!

Well...hopefully you will get another opportunity to teach him how to accept loosing. In the mean time, teach him to be a good winner! That's a big trophy!
