We are having a huge Super Bowl party at our house on Sunday. Football sparked an argument between my husband and I the other night. He and our young sons love to play the Madden NFL video game. My boys never beat their father because they are too young. He always talks trash after winning. I asked him what he thought about letting them win some games. He looked at me like I was crazy and said parents should never allow their kids to win at sports, video games or anything else. He says the kids should earn the win. I disagree and think you're killing a child's confidence if you don't allow them to win at least some of the time. With the Super Bowl coming up on Sunday, where do you stand on this? Should parents allow their children to win?
