How do you feel about that mentality? When I was growing up, not everyone "won", we had "losers", not everyone made the team, not everyone got a trophy, etc. but these days it seems that everyone wins. Everyone makes the team. Everyone gets a trophy. And if not than parents make a stink until it happens. Personally, I don't feel that helps kids at all. It gives them unrealistic expectations and there is not drive to do better and be the best instilled into them. But those are my feelings. I hope that my girls don't ever accept an award or reward for something that they did not do or deserve.
