The main aim should be self-growth and if losing teaches you that, then it's okay. It prepares us to accept defeat with grace and have the will and determination to keep going.

4. It teaches them to take risks

Sometimes if you want to achieve something you need to take the risk for it. You may or may not achieve it, but at least you will learn to take that leap of faith. You will not be afraid to experiment. Kids will also understand how to achieve greatness in life, one needs to push boundaries.

5. Quitting is not a solution

 

Kids will learn how champions push harder when they face a challenge; they don't give up. Life isn't always fair, and when things get tough, you need to be determined and resilient. That's how you overcome challenges and come out stronger.
