Do your kids have a ton of trophies?  It's baseball season again for us and I another trophy is in our future.  His room is filling up with them and it's getting ridiculous.  Do you dread all trophies? If you have older kids do you still have them all?

We have them for basketall, baseball, soccer and even some from school for academics.  Good grades, reading and more.  UGH!

I think it's crap that every team gets a trophy. When I played ball 1st, 2nd and 3rd place only got them we are raising a bunch of pansies.

Yes we have a ton. We built a shelf around the top of his room so they are out of the way.

This! Trophies are becoming meaningless because everyone gets one!

My oldest has three 3rd place trophies and one 2nd place. His brothes don't have any. Nobody wants to go out and do things like sports :/
