Marquette, MiFebruary 17, 2014 – Whiners Don’t Like Rewarding “Straight -A” Students

I think it makes sense to reward success – In business, in sport, and Yes.. in Academics.  Sadly, not everyone agrees.  A middle-school in Silver Spring, MD recently held a party for students who achieved straight “A”s on their report cards.  If you are hearing this for the first time, you probably think “Hey, that makes sense… good for them!” But only if you’re in your Right Mind!

There are those who believe rewarding success hurts the feelings of those who didn’t hit the mark.  These people are clearly NOT in their Right Mind.   These whiners are just as harmful as those who don’t want kids to keep score in games, or who think everyone should get participation ribbons rather than a prize for winning.  In the name on NOT hurting feelings, these misguided people actually do more harm to kids than losing ever could.

When they should be telling their kids to strive for success, they fight those who would reward that success.  In doing so, they inadvertently tell their kids that losing is horrible, and they SHOULD feel bad if they don’t receive  an award.  They should be telling their kids that losing is part of life, and while it is unpleasant, it isn’t the end of the world, and if it bothers them, they should work to improve.

GOOD parents would encourage their kids, and use this teaching moment; but the “equality police” want everyone to be mediocre and will punish those who succeed until they embrace mediocrity.  They must HATE the olympics… it has winners AND gracious losers – a liberal nightmare!
