What ever happened to there actually being winners in school – now a days everyone is a winner and everyone gets something for trying. This is not how the real world works – but imagine if it did – go for a job – don’t get it but the company will pay you a lesser salary for just trying. Try out for a professional – sport – you don’t make it but as a consolation we will let you play one quarter of a game. Go for a record contract – nope not good enough but we will make an album with you anyway to make you feel better. Try out for a part in a movie – don’t get it but we will let you be in the movie anyway even if you can’t act for nuts. Where is the responsible raising of our children in schools gone to? ( And yes they do raise them along with the parents) And what kind of children are we raising that don’t know what it is like to succeed or fail??
