#FeedbackFriday – Should every child be a winner?
These days it seems there are no winners, and no losers. In most school sports, children receive trophies just for showing up and participating. This week’s #FeedbackFriday asks the question: Should every child be a winner?
There are plenty of recent examples in the news where coaches have been ostracized for allowing their teams to dramatically outscore their opponents. Some say this prohibits children from learning how to cope with failure. Others say this helps children’s self-esteem regardless of their abilities or talents.
So for #FeedbackFriday, tell us Stakeholders…what do you think?
Should every child be a winner? Or should we teach our children the importance of failure? Are we building a culture of complacency, or building a culture of compassion?
