Playing Sorry! with my 7, 5, and 3 year-old. Their vocalized object is to team up to beat daddy. I do not like to lose. And I cannot fathom what it would be like to lose to a 7, 5, and 3 year-old. But 1 against 3 in Sorry! is not exactly very promising.
Should I just get angry and bully my way into “persuading” to play fair?
Nope. Just let it ride. This is what I want from them. I want them to want to win. And I want them to team up to beat a stronger opponent. So even if I lose, I still win.
But I didn’t lose.
