Do You Support ‘Everyone’s a Winner’ These Days? [POLL]
In a world of everything having to politically correct, we've lost touch with reality in every possible way. How is 'everyone's a winner' even remotely a good thing???
Since this trend has started in schools and sports across the country, these kids have become adults. There's a different kind of adult that's very different from many of us...many of them don't know how to react when they aren't rewarded for everything they do.
If you don't know what 'everyone's a winner' is, it's basically giving a reward for participating, in whatever they do. No negative consequence or disciplinary action in everything you do. If you tried, then you are a winner too. That's not what life is about.
Here's a great example of what I'm trying to say here. Click here to read an article about it.
When my son was a couple years old, I vowed to make sure he understood that as you get older you're going to win and lose. People are going to be mean sometimes. Not everything is going to be fair...that's life! He's 14 now and a great kid. Very competitive and has great adult traits. When things don't go as planned, he doesn't get all bent out of shape over it. I see tons of kids, and young adults, that cry when they lose. There's a sense of entitlement these days, and I blame it on the 'everyone's a winner' way of the world, and I'm not OK with it.
