Second best

Was chatting with my sister the other day. I made the remark that, for young kids, it may not be so good if they are the best among their peers all the time. My reason is that, once they get too accustomed to that feeling, it will be that much harder to handle and accept set-backs in future.

My sister commented that it was odd to have come from me.

Thinking back, I guess it was indeed rather unusual. Maybe, like my sister said, I have matured a little bit!? Or that I have learnt it in the last couple of years, the hard way?
