Where does the need to be competitive come from and why does it rub us parents up the wrong way? This week Abigail and Elle respond to one mom about her son's competitive streak.

On Help! My Kid Keeps Bragging we talk about:

  • Competitiveness and confidence
  • Is competition bad, anyways?
  • Why sometimes it's good to bask with your child in their glory
