Example script of demonstrating how to handle cheating appropriately:
Ken: I beat you in the board game!
Darren: Ken I’m not sure if you realized but you just took my turn. You just cheated and that is why you think you won.
Ken: Oh, I’m sorry, let's do it again. It’s your turn now.
Darren: Thank you for understanding and playing fairly.

Example script of demonstrating how to handle cheating inappropriately:
Ken: I beat you in the board game!
Darren: You cheated! I’m not playing with you anymore!
Ken: No I didn’t, you are just jealous that you did not win.
Darren: No way, you did not play correctly.
