Kids need to know that even though they did not win, their efforts were recognized. Rewarding just “winners” is a sign of a megalomaniac. Control freaks and power hungry fools think if you are not a winner you are a useless idiot. Losers in sports may be winners in something else, and usually tend to be winners in life. I had a sports coach who said “If you are not a winner…you are nothing”. I ended up with a Masters Degree and CEO of my own company. Loser? I do not think so. I have no sports trophies, but I have degrees on my wall, and am financially stable. A person can be a winner in things other than sports.
