ALEX (age seven)

LIFE is competition, and children need to learn about winning and losing and how to be gracious in victory and defeat.

I agree that some children are more competitive than others. Some children need a goal in life. Whether it is learning a new sport or winning, they still need a goal.

My seven-year-old son (letter above) is a goalkeeper for an Under 8s team and is highly competitive. He gives 100 per cent in all matches and, while he gets annoyed with himself if he lets a goal in, he is very happy when he saves them. He would also like to let other people know how his team got on, win or lose.
