The Comparison Game uses cognitive behavioral concepts to help children identify how to stop intrusive thoughts of comparison and to focus thoughts on being content. When you compare yourself to those you think you are better than, you come across as arrogant and rude. When you compare yourself to those who have more, it ignites jealousy and discontent. Either way, you lose. This game helps children evaluate their own attitude and recognize ways to be content with what they have and to value the differences between people.
Since it is a game you can never win, the game board is designed in a circle with no ending available. This helps drive home the point that comparing yourself to others never pays. The game can be played in individual, group, or family sessions.
