    Yes! This everyone gets a trophy thing is beyond me. Children need to learn that not everything will handed to them.

      We’re not doing them any favors. I want them to appreciate hard work and the feeling of real achievement.
      Thanks for stopping by

    We had this when I was in dance school, and although it was sweet, it was definitely sending us the wrong message. You should always strive to do your best, even if there’s a trophy at the end of the year or not.

      Right, and I do understand trophies for the younger kids. But when everyone gets one, it kinda looses it’s value. Happy to hear how you see it!

    I completely agree! My husband and I are both kind of “tough love” parents and if our kid didn’t earn it, I don’t think they should get it!

      No trophies they didn’t earn, and I bet you still have happy kids! Our kids are just fine without it. Thanks for sharing Suzanne 🙂

      I know there’s more of us out there, I can see them when the trophies are handed out every season! 🙂
