Competitions are a great way to get your child excited. Not just for working on a problem but also finding a solution. Healthy competitions are good for motivating students. It helps them to put their best effort in attempting or learning new concepts. It is important that we make the distinction between healthy and unhealthy competition.
I loved reading this write up on healthy versus unhealthy competitions from developgoodhabits.com. Healthy competition can be motivating, breeds aspiration for achievement and teaches critical thinking and teamwork. These are vital skills that we need as adults and this helps children form these excellent habits early on in life.
