MY FOUR-YEAR-OLD grandson Siddharth, who’s already intensely competitive, recently entered a children’s dance competition.
When he didn’t win a prize, he cried inconsolably for 20 minutes. Once he’d calmed down, my daughter started to pontificate about sportsmanship and how what really matters is not whether you win or lose but how you play the game.
