Competition - the word has different meanings for different people, especially parents. While some vouch for its merits and encourage it in their tots and teens, others strongly advocate against it and brand it as detrimental to a child’s development.

In the face of such diverse opinions, we start with defining what ‘competitive spirit’ means.

They equip a child to compete, and eventually, to succeed in life.
