    Takes out the competition factor. Why try if you know you are getting a medal anyway.

    Sadly, this is true. Kids need to be taught not everyone can win and how to lose with dignity.

    We moved to Florida when I was in the Middle of the 6th Grade. Dad signed me and my younger brother up for Little League. I was drafted to Play on ‘The Pirates’ and my Younger Brother was drafted to Play on "The Indians’

    The Pirates finished in last place, The Indians finished in 2nd Place. The Summer of 1970, I was too old for Little League and my younger brother was drafted to play on ‘The Pirates’. He pitched a fit. He did not want to play on a loser team. Dad told him he was going to play. He did and that Year ‘The Pirates’ Finished in First Place. He obtained Two Little League Trophies one for 2nd Place and one for 1st Place. I did not get a Trophy and it did not bother me as I knew not everyone could be in 1st Place.

    It annoys me when parents agree that every kid deserves a medal no matter how good or bad they are, when I was younger and didn’t get a medal, it just made me want to try harder to get one.

    This really is flawed logic. Kids really do need to learn how to fail. Instead we wrap them up in bubble wrap, tell them constantly how good they are, and protect them from every germ and bully. Most kids will survive this cocoon of care and grow up to be productive adults, but many will not be able to face life.

    My 12 year-old Great-Grand-Daughter attended a School Recommended self defense class offered by the police department. she earned two marksman medals and a self defense medal for her attendance and participation.

    She took the medals to school to help promote the next event, and got in-school suspension for promoting violence.

    somehow… that makes sense. In a very governmental way.

    No good deed goes unpunished. This is a case of liberals being in charge…don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.

    yeah, it goes from why work and try at sports or competition when your young (everyone gets a medal anyway) to why work and try at making a living (when everybody gets what they need) ie socialism…
