My daughter played soccer last year. Let me rephrase, my daughter was enrolled on a soccer team. Merrick played a total of ten minutes the entire season. She preferred being a cheerleader. This is no surprise considering she is a 4 yr old diva. At the end of the season, all the kids received a trophy. At 4, my child is already being told you don’t have to follow through to be rewarded. Trust me, she got the message.
Everyone receiving a trophy is just an example of the coddling environment younger generations experience. The kids don’t learn lessons because Mom and Dad catch them before they fall or are able to game the system to keep their children out of harm or trouble. I am constantly amazed at all the gadgets parents use to hover over their children. Frightening, really. What happens when we are gone?
