As my daughter said when she got her participation ribbon for 4h 

"I didn't get the ribbon, my chicken got the ribbon."

Positive reinforcement is a good thing, especially when it comes to young children.

I don't get why people care. My son's entire soccer team got a trophy. It was simply for being on the team. No one was harmed, no one gave a shit. The trophy collects dust in my son's room. Who cares???

Because it's a trendy thing to bitch about.

Anyone who thinks handing out prizes to every kid is a good idea is part of the problem. Those Kids are going to crash and burn into adult hood the first time they don't get a gold star for "effort" when they do a piss poor job at work and instead get fired. This generation is completely fucked.

I'm 37 and got trophies for soccer and ice skating. EVERYONE did. This isn't a new thing. I don't even know where those trophies are today. That shows how much of an impact they made hey? šŸ˜‚

FFS GET OVER IT ALREADY!!!!!!
I'm so sick of the word "entitled" and everyone thinking our kids are going to be horrible adults. You know why kids turn into horrible adults? Because they have shitty parents, not because they got some stupid participation award. And I'm not even saying I like those things, I wouldn't care if they got rid of them but jesus christ people they aren't the downfall of our children. Can we be a little more dramatic please?
The kids smile about them for 5 min and then they are on to something else, what's the big deal. Parents think about that kind of stuff WAY more than the child does.
