What the World Cup taught us
Things don't always go your way, can your kids cope?
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24
The Brazil fan is standing in the middle of the road, his feathered head-dress drooping around his ears.

'Shame, Mom,he looks so sad,' says my 10-year-old, staring at the man.

The Brazil fan puts his hand on the symbol on his chest 'I still have my five stars,' he says.

It's an important lesson for my son - things don't always go the way you hope they will, but you can still hang on to hope and move on with what you have.

What's the biggest lesson you and your child have learned from the World Cup? (Always pee before you go? Never forget your earplugs?) The best answer you mail us could win a Parent24 T-shirt.
