You tell her we are all very proud of her, your true friends will still be you friends regardless of who wins. It is a good lesson of how not to be when you get beat, hard way to learn it, but sometimes I think it is more meaningful when it is something you experience rather than something your parents have just told you to do.justme said:We experienced it this weekend. My daughter has had an awesome first year, and we are so gratful that she has. She always helps anyone out that she can...she's just that kind of kid. We pulled in and nobody wanted to let us pen next to them telling us they are already taken. Finally someone let us pen. Then they wouldn't let us in the wash rack. The one boy said why should we let someone who could beat us in? Wow were we taken back. I took my daughter aside and had to explain why a young man who has always been nice to her would act so rude to her.
Just a shame that when a kid works hard others get jealous. Kids just need to keep there chins up and win and loose with dignity.
