A Moral Victory

"I win again!" My son points and laughs. I know he won, that's how I planned it.

I am forty-five and he is ten, with that age difference I should beat him every time, but 80% of the time I let him win. It does not mean as much to me to lose, as much as it means to him to win. One side of the discussion will be that I give him a false sense of triumph and not preparing him for the real world. I say he is ten and will have plenty of wins and losses in his lifetime, and right now a 80% winning percentage works for me.
