What did your dad say to you when you won something as a kid? What did your dad say to you if you lost? Do you remember those times? Did that make you want to be a winner? Did you become one? Now in dealing with your own children, how are you handling this?
Todd and Kent look inside the Art of being a winner. How is it done? How can you do it without becoming a jerk? Are parents being so soft on their kids that they can’t even become winners. There is a great deal of research out there and it was recently released in a Newsweek article. Todd and Kent aren’t saying you have to be one or the other, but you would be a loser if you missed out on learning what the experts have to say (and we are not referring to Todd and Kent in this instance)

Did your Dad tell you to toughen up if you want to win? “Be a Man! Get stronger. Out-muscle the other guy!” Times have changed and now lots of parents are saying, “Let everyone win.” Is either side right? Maybe.
Newsweek recently released an article “Why Winners win.” that spoke to all of this. It struck a chord with Todd and kent, who have seen winning from two completely different perspectives, one as a young kid and one as a parent. How did they get there? How do professional athletes get there? The article mixed with this conversation gives you the research and the perspective on winning that you might need as a father. Are you watching your child play sports? What is your reaction to their success and failures on the field? Being victorious may have nothing to do with all of your training. We explain in this edition of Dads Unplugged.
