My son had just one issue with group games - he had to be the winner! If someone was faster in a race or had more painting skills (a great mystery in his mind), the following sequence of events would follow:
- He would cry, throw himself on the floor, cry again, repeat.
There were times when I wanted to ask the people around me if someone knew that child to avoid the shame, but it was obvious I was the mom.
What was worrisome was that he seemed to get better at tantrums each time. The more I acknowledged his feelings and the situation, the more he would cry.
