I am sick and tired of people coming out and saying that praising your children or rewarding them FOR COMPETING even if they lose is a waste of time.

Giving children praise on a daily basis, reaffirming that they are worth something (when child suicide is at an all time high) is needed MORE, not less.

When society keeps telling kids it's okay NOT to participate, it's okay to be considered losers, no matter how hard you try -- it's people like this doctor and those supporting this madness that are putting kids at risk for becoming shitty adults.
