Well done! With that victory out of the way, you can start focusing on that pre-school spelling competition coming up! And those 5 year olds won't be as nice as this kid if you lose!

Although I agree to a point, we are still humans and have emotions that sometimes we simply can't control no matter how ridiculous they may be. They say the same thing about nursing, don't get emotionally attached to your patients, but I can't help it, I'm a caring person. And when something bad happens to my residents or one of them dies, I have been known to cry. Of course I hold myself together the best I can in front of them and their families, but sometimes I can't help but shed a tear or two. If you don't care about your patients, or the children you are babysitting in this case, then maybe you shouldn't be in that field.

9- I never meant in situations like that. I understand you caring for your residents. My mother and brother work in a hospital, and various assisted care facilities. I know how hard your job must be. I appreciate knowing that someone else who cares is working with our elderly. I just meant that this was such a trivial situation, something as simple as a children's game, and in situations like this the caregiver has to maintain their emotions. In serious situations, anyone is entitled to lose their cool. This is just such an absurd thing for someone to become very defensive or angry towards a child over. OP was manipulating the child's reactions in the first place by pretending to lose- they should have maintained more control over what was happening.

...yes. They always say I win a free iPad. All I have to do is provide them with all my major credit card info, home address, social security, mothers maiden name, her social security number and then I get a free iPad 3!!!!

"actually proud that I beat" ... easy to miss. I usually let them win by a little so I don't look like I'm just letting them win. They catch on if you let them win too easily. But if they start becoming sore winners, I stop letting them win for a while and show them how to act when you win. Lead by example.

Still, I doubt beating a 3 years at games is much of a challenge. I'd say FYL if you decided not to let him win and lost in the end. You know, it's a good thing to let him lose sometimes and teach him to not be a sore loser.
