Answer:
It is a natural response. Children are seeing such things on tv, in school and at home. So appreciate the process and not the result. When he does an activity, appreciate the process. Then talk to him how the process is more important than the result . Talk to him about your values and how important it is to your family. Tell stories relating to the value of sportsmanship. Organise some games/activities where the winners appreciate the losers. The losers have to congratulate the winners. This way mutual respect is developed. This will take time but gradually it will happen. When he loses give him a hug and emphasize the spirit of sportsmanship. Also guide him on how he can improve with practice. I hope these give you some ideas.
