    NO.My excuse is if the child is used to competition he performs good even though he does not feel special.Satan.^O^

    I was playing Mario Kart on the wii against a friends 7 year old yesterday. Before we started playing he said I was useless at the game and always came last.

    There was no way I was going to let him win!

    I took it as a challenge. We managed 3 races before his lunch was ready. I didn't care about winning the races but I made sure I beat him every time!

    I wouldn't have to let them win. I'd try my best, but the kid would still probably kick my ass.

    How old is deppending how easy I go on them. I look at it like this....if they get the consept of the game and can easily control their player then why should I go easier. Gives them a goal in the game and that's to be better then me.

    If they want to compete I will throw everything in my arsenal their way and literally show them how its done. I've been pwnd by some little kids online though. I'd rather be playing co-op with children anyway. Minecraft is a good one.

    sometimes you've got to let them win, so they can have the confidence to keep trying

    If I win, I teach them what they did wrong and how to play better. But, usually, I prefer for them to learn by playing, so I stay quiet. But, I do go a little easier on kids, since if I played like I always do, I'd essentially kick their asses. I don't want to do that, since they're just kids.

    Kids need to learn to lose. I'll let them win sometimes but it's a good lesson kids need to learn early. I play and when they lose I teach them what they're doing wrong and tell them to correct it. Video games, sports, board games, whatever I'm not influencing a sore loser and or that winning is everything.

    Well except my nephew.

    He was only 4 years old and we were playing Black Ops, at first I decided I was going to let him win, but while we were playing, I found out he was abnormally amazing for a 4 year old.

    So I started playing competitively with him, and in the end, he beat me. Horribly. And then he made fun of me.

    It depends on the situation. I can however say I go easy on them.

    I did the same thing even with adults when I was Fencing regularly.

    In practice if I was much better than my opponent I would handicap myself. I'd decide to only target their forearm or a similar small target.

    This made it much better training for me because of the increased difficulty, but also made their training more enjoyable and gave them a chance.

    No i don't. I think if they wanted bad enough. They have to work for it. Like everything else in life.
