Acerca del libro
Get Used To Losing is a children’s book designed to introduce kids (ages 1-8) to the concept of accepting temporal failure. The message is clear – always be proud of your efforts and keep working hard to achieve your best, but know that things won’t always go your way. This seemingly defeatist message is delivered in a poetically playful couplets and addresses life’s endless competition from the Conquered’s point of view. Losing is never fun, but it happens. Get Used To Losing is for the realistic parent who wants to prepare their child for a world that owes us nothing. Too often our instinct is to coddle our kids and protect them from the difficult aspects of life. Instead we must address these realities early on in order to facilitate emotional growth. It certainly is true that without disappointment, one cannot truly appreciate victory. But if we don’t address how to properly handle those necessary disappointments, winning won’t offset the damage done in the process.
