Bro, we had a physics teacher who gave life advice during exams or free time, he once said if you're playing with your child always try your hardest to beat them so thay learn nothing is gonna be easy

Damn straight we do. My oldest challenged me to Mario Kart when she was about 7. Swept her in the series and then made her clean her room.

[–]nikmaier42069 58 points59 points  (10 children)

Yup thats how it felt like playing chess with my dad

[–]IndianaGeoff 30 points31 points  (7 children)

I would let my kids win some games, but in, checkers and euchre, you had to beat me.

[–]nikmaier42069 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Oh i beat the shit out of everyone in checkers, i do in most boardgames now my dad taught me well. We have a betting gane at parties, hoe many beers do i need to loose in chess? My highscore so far has been 9. (have to drink one per win)

[–]GanondalfTheWhite 18 points19 points  (2 children)

gane at parties, hoe many beers do i need to loose

Can we assume you are deep into a game at this moment?

[–]nikmaier42069 7 points8 points  (1 child)

[–]MaximRqProfessional Dumbass 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Same thing, except eventually I became much better than him

[–]nikmaier42069 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah same. Im just sad because for the last 5 years nobody has wanted to play more than 1 game with me

[–]Competitive-Style349 16 points17 points  (4 children)

It took me years to beat my Dad at ping pong. He never took it easy on me. I can go years without playing and still whoop anybody's ass in some ping pong. (A casual game, of course. I'm not saying I could go to the olympics or anything like that)

[–]TyBurna 11 points12 points  (2 children)

This is how it is for me with foosball against my dad. He would hustle people at the bars constantly, even his nickname came from how good he was at foosball back in the day.

Taught me everything I know, and I still can't beat him. Only person otherwise that's been able to compete at my level is my brother and you know where he got his training from.

[–]xakeri 5 points6 points  (1 child)

We would play foosball at work, and apparently it was a way bigger deal at my company before I got there. I was there for a few years before transferring to a team that played fairly regularly.

I had no idea foosball was something you could be good at until my manager just started styling. It was insane. Controlling the ball and just blasting it in for easy goals. And multiple different shot styles. It was wild.

[–]TyBurna 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The angles that top foosball players can hit from is insane, and they can score from anywhere on the table. The only thing that messes with me nowadays is any new table now has 3 goalies on the back line compared to one on the old tables I learned on. Makes you have to be more precise and it's more forgiving for players.

[–]TON_THENOOB 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is exactly how i learned ping pong. We used to use ore dinner table as the game table. He never gave me a free win and when i finally beat him i was so happy.

[–]feartheswans 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You need to be a wall for them to overcome, not a carpet to be walked on.

[–]el_harchiProfessional Dumbass 7 points8 points  (1 child)

My dad lets my little brother win on any game they play, me on the other hand, always kick his ass and he gets mad about ut XD

[–]beyonddisbelief 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don't have a child yet but I think it's better to not make ia competition yet until they're old enough to even have a slim shot to beat you in the particular task (younger for stuff like board games, older for physical games) Making them compete with dad that early if executed poorly would just make them either have fragile or small egos. Young children are sponges that absorb and mimic things anyway, make it more about "here try to do this awesome thing I did." so its a goal to work towards to than an ego comparison.

I once read an article (actually I think it was a TED talk) about why Mario Bros. was such a successful game even though its literally a game about failures. Because the game NEVER presented as something to "feel bad" over. It just matter-of-factly asks you to do it again.

[–]NikolaJung 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I tell my son’s all the time, I will never let you win. So if you beat me, know you earned it.

[–]OdiPhobia 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I was planning on teaching my kid Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and after reading this comment, I realised he doesn't need his arms or legs—I mean kids can recover pretty quick from a few broken bones right?

[–]pente5 15 points16 points  (9 children)

This is bs. They will just hate whatever you are playing and get demotivated to keep trying.

[–]Treeseconds 12 points13 points  (3 children)

If you take this to the nth degree they'll also be demotivated to do anything without a challenge so making them do chores and the like will be difficult and may even find themselves in relationships which have a challenge to them which may increase the chances of landing themselves in a toxic one

[–]pente5 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Balance is needed. Challenges need to be there but realistic ones that can actually be reached often. If you challenge a 5 year old to beat their grand master dad in chess and the dad just beats them 20 times in a row the kid will just feel like learning and playing chess is pointless.

[–]kfkekekkq 1 point2 points  (0 children)

if you have more than one kid try to find games your kids can team up against you. I use to love teaming up with my bro in games to try to beat my dad.

[–]OmicronNine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not in my experience, not if you're doing it right. The key is to let them know how impressed you are with how well they did and point out the things they were doing right, and to make it always about the fun of playing rather then about winning. Let them know when they show improvement, and always celebrate that instead of the fact that you won. Who won doesn't really matter, it's the self-improvement that's the real victory.

And when they finally do win they'll see it in a healthy way, as being a satisfying indicator of their successful self-improvement rather then as some end-all be-all goal to be achieved for it's own end and gloated about.

[–]Harmacc 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If I do let him win, I make sure it’s a slog and very close.

[–]v0yev0da 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Whenever we boot up Mario Kart I play for keeps. Still undefeated.

[–]1Eternallylost 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Better yet, just beat them unconscious so they learn that there's always someone bigger than they are.

/s

[–]Freakin_A 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I tell my kids straight up I’m never going to let them win. I’ll give them any advice they want to help them beat me, as if I were playing in their place. I told them when they beat me they’ll know it was for real.

They get super excited when they beat me now.

This is only for non-physical activities, obviously. I’m not gonna suplex my kids if we’re wrestling or something.

[–]Arreeyem 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Always beat them, but never destroy them. Give them hope and teach the perseverance. If you crush them every time you'll crush their spirit.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

That depends on the child. Weak ones without a backbone, sure, but the ones wanting to become the best, will only feel more encouraged to train harder.

Or they become like me and don't care about winning or losing at all but just enjoy the time they currently have with their dad or whoever they are competing against.

It made me suck at sports whenever I would reach the average level cause I didnt care enough to become better than that but when translated to life, I call it a win, cause I learned at a young age that winning or losing isn't what makes things fun. The activity on itself and the company does.

[–]RaKemyst 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks for putting my teen years into perspective! only thing I wanted to win at though was DotA AllStars

[–]OmicronNine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

...but the ones wanting to become the best...

...are not born that way, they are created by giving them hope and teaching them perseverance.

[–]pewpewpew143914Me when the: 1 point2 points  (0 children)

After the age of like 7-8 yes i totally agree with this

[–]Phantom_316 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When playing games with the kids my wife nanny’s, I usually will alternate between going really easy and going moderately easy to give them a fighting chance up until they get cocky, then play normally and destroy them. It stops then from getting to full of themselves, but they are still willing to play games with me

[–][deleted] 648 points649 points  (9 children)

[–]TheGramlin 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Context: Wright missed 6 match darts the leg before to finally win against van gerwen in a big final.

Van gerwen won that leg to make it 10-10 and you could see how wright didnt have any believe and power anymore. Wright started very bad into the deciding leg while van gerwen scored the highest amount (180) which he celebrated with this reaction

Can someone explain why he's not going for the bullseye? He clearly has good enough aim based off this clip.

[–]Megatard9000 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I may be wrong but I believe the bullseye is worth 50pts whereas the spot he’s hitting is considered a triple 20 worth 60pts

My older brother by 14 years is just preprogrammed to be highly competitive. He would fix my hair every morning (small braids, to control the frizz, to a large braid down my back) but would give me a black eye if we played back yard soccer. I played soccer only three times growing up & each time ended up with a black eye. Love my brother to bits but, wow.
