Hey Coach, Suck On This!

Is there anything quite as sweet as the taste of validation?

Per Fox News... too much praise and trophies for everyone creates a generation of fucked up kids. Click here for Dr. Keith's take on it. He is so on my side.

Thanks for the heads up, HB.

In case you have missed my Soccer Trophy saga/rant, it's all right here for your reading pleasure.

Love it, yes. The validation is sweet indeed.

I have dozens of students who turn in substandard work and are genuinely stunned when I return it with a realistic grade. Buck up, gang.

(Though I do give everyone a mint when we play a game; but the winners get 2 :D)

You are cracking me up with this trophy thing. I'm telling you - you and Denis Leary. Meant to be.

puh-leeze, i want to see one individual who is truly hosed due to sincere validation by a parent.
of course mock anything is bad

Hey Larry... not hosed. Just out of touch with reality. WE'RE NOT ALL WINNERS. Sorry, kids, but we're just not.

Hi - stopping by from Keetha's blog. I love the trophy rant! It's refreshing. Have a happy Thanksgiving.
