About BetterNot!

This series is the story of BetterNot, a magical character who arrives in a flash to aid parents, coaches and teachers by helping children learn valuable lessons about fairness, honesty, kindness and good manners in ways that fits each child’s poor behavior.
The first book in the series is BetterNot! And the Tale of Bratsville. It’s about a town filled with very naughty children like Larry Liar, Rebecca Robber and Lilly Loudmouth. Their parents could not make them behave no matter what they tried until the magical creature named BetterNot rose from his magical, bubbling purple swamp to come to their aid.
The second book in the series is BetterNot! And the Tale of Brat Sports. It’s about a sports field where some children do not play fair or try their best and so they need lessons in sportsmanship.

    I try to teach my grandchildren that you can’t win every time and to congratulate the winner. It is a hard concept to get through to the young ones.

  2. James Robert May 25, 2016 at 9:27 am -

    With 5 kids, they still are learning but I try to teach them we cannot win all the time, be happy for other team and congratulate them for their win. I think by seeing us display good sportsmanship helps them understand and treat others with respect.

  3. Linda Szymoniak May 25, 2016 at 9:58 am -

    I think the best way to teach children good sportsmanship is by example. Too many parents are over competitive and are sore losers themselves, and their kids learn from them.

  4. Cindy Merrill May 25, 2016 at 11:06 am -

    I tell them if they don’t play fair then they don’t deserve to win. Good Sportsman ship also means not being a bad loser.

  5. heather e.g. kaufman May 25, 2016 at 2:59 pm -

    I always remind them to be graceful winners & losers.

  6. Deb P May 25, 2016 at 10:05 pm -

    If you lose , shake hands with the other guy.

  7. Hannah C May 25, 2016 at 11:40 pm -

    I think by teaching good sportsmanship, it’s important to talk to kids about what it means to be on a team. Setting an example is the best way.

    My grandson is learning the rules, procedures and sportsmanship manners of baseball before he ever plays a game.

  9. Trisha Burgess May 26, 2016 at 12:08 am -

    I remind the importance of treating others how you want to be treated!

  10. Krystal Waters May 26, 2016 at 12:58 am -

    Shake hands at the end of every game and keep a good attitude even when you lose the game.

  11. robyn donnelly May 26, 2016 at 10:25 am -

    Teach them to be fair no matter what others do.

  12. Emily Endrizzi May 26, 2016 at 11:55 am -

    I try to teach my children good sportsmanship by modeling good behavior, not cheating and being a gracious winner as well as loser.

  13. Ashley C May 26, 2016 at 4:38 pm -

    I do not have children. But I was always really taught that it didn’t matter if you lost or won. All that did matter was if you did your best.

  14. Susan Mullaney May 26, 2016 at 7:40 pm -

    I don’t have kids, but I learned that nobody wins all the time and to be respectful to all the people participating, whether I won or lost.

  15. Jan Lee May 27, 2016 at 12:48 pm -

    We play games together, then when she gets a good turn, I give her praise. When I get a good turn I ask her “what did I say when you got a [good turn]?” I tell her it’s polite to praise and it’s being a good sport to be happy when someone else does good too. I also ask her how she feels when someone says she did a good thing (had a good turn.) She tells me it makes her feel good so I use that to encourage her to give the praise to others and I told her that is what’s called good sportsmanship in games 🙂

  16. Lauryn R May 27, 2016 at 1:30 pm -

    I talk to my children about being a good sport when losing as well as winning. Teaching them about honesty, respect, and kindness is very important to me.

  17. Dawn Keenan May 28, 2016 at 8:46 am -

    We really stress that everyone is worthwhile—win or lose. Again, it’s how you play the game, not whether you win or lose.

  18. aaron reck May 29, 2016 at 10:44 pm -

    I think that is important for the little ones to learn most from what I do and not what I say. They want to have a positive can do attitude and know so long as tried winning or losing don’t matter.

  19. Debbie Bray May 29, 2016 at 11:46 pm -

    I teach them to shake hands with the other team and to learnto be gracious when winning or losing

  20. Gina M May 30, 2016 at 2:00 pm -

    We make sure that he shakes the hand of the other opponent. Celebrate the wins and accept the losses. No making fun of other players, or gloating. Humility is important!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I don’t have children, but I would probably try to lead by example and make sure to teach them about being gracious whether they won or lost.

  22. laura May 31, 2016 at 4:24 pm -

    I teach my kids by example and I talk to them about everything

  23. Lisa F. June 1, 2016 at 2:18 pm -

    It can be very difficult, but it is really best to teach kids it’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game.

  24. Danielle Day June 2, 2016 at 7:26 pm -

    Teaching him to be a graceful winner and looser.

    So that is my story.
