The sense of competitiveness can be fun and can bring out the best in you, but to children the case can be different. Some people think that a sense of competition in children should be encouraged. On the other hand, others believe that children must be taught to be more co-operate which can make them more useful adults when they grow up.
Some parents teach their children to be an athlete in any kind of sport, which makes parents build the thurst to win in their kids. In my opinion, this is a very risky way to raise a child. For instance, who does not like winning, the feeling of winning can boost the morale of a child. However, winning is not always guaranteed. Assuming that the child started to lose his fire to this sports and starts to enter a cycle constant losses. Psychologically, this will be very unhealthy for a small human being who can not handle the pressure from adults, which can lead to psychological problems. Another reason to justify my opinion, when a kid is losing and gets the feeling of intimidation from other children, this can build an aggressive attitude to the child.
Building co-operate teamworking environment to a child has many advantages. As some people believe that children can become more useful adults in the future. In my personal opinion, this is the right way to raise a child. Teaching children to be more co-operate can give them the sense of building new friendship, thinking for the sake of the team or others, and reduces the selfishness in the child. Overall, the key of raising a child that will be beneficial to the community and building his/her own successful carrer properly is to teach them how to co-operate from a young age.
In conclusion, there are many ways to teach children what is right and what is wrong. All parents aim to see their child in a high position and living comfortably. In order to reach that stage of comfort, parents must teach their children the fundamentals of sharing and working together as a team.
