I have a few issues with what has happened in the news today. These issues can be used to teach your children valuable lessons. I apologize to my more sensitive readers as this is rougher language than I normally use in my rants. If you are offended, sorry. But seriously, grow up!
1. LeBron James refuses to shake hands after getting beat. He claims, “I am a competitor. I am not a poor sport. I like to win. That’s just who I am.” Sorry Asshole, let me help you with who you really are: you are a poor sport. You shake hands after a game. Period. Win or lose. Here is the opportunity for all parents to use this example of poor sportsmanship to teach your children a valuable lesson. Explain to your kids that they are not supposed to act like this. Teach that this is not acceptable behavior by anyone. Knock this guy off every pedestal he has been placed on and don’t let him pretend to be a role model for your kids. He is an ungrateful jerk. We ALL like to win. We all HATE to lose. But losing is a part of life and you better learn to do it graciously. Teach your kids to lose graciously and win the same way.Details
