Stop giving kids trophies for participation.
When our parents were little, you got a trophy if you won. If you lost, you just lost. You either tried a new activity or got better at the one you just lost in. We are soft, y’all. We all grew up in this age of “at least you tried” and now we’re lazy, entitled brats who get upset when we can’t get everything right.
