No one likes to lose. Especially kids. This social story discusses what happens when being competitive takes over too big of a spot in your brain and leaves out all the other good things about you. We talk about sore winners and sore losers, expected and unexpected behaviors for losing and use thought bubbles to show perspective taking of what other kids might be thinking with the unexpected behavior. Rules change with age and so do expected reactions. We use some calming thoughts to help us practice how to soothe our brains when we lose and finally, remember, kids don't really remember in a few months who won, but they do remember who had a tantrum when they lost! Great for kids with social cognitive deficits or on the autism spectrum.
