I've got news for these blockheads. That's not how life works and is only contributing to the mediocrity that our country seems to be falling into. Noone wants to work harder to get better or to strive for higher goals. Why should they? They'll get rewarded anyway. People seems to think that if you bring others down to your level that it somehow makes everything better. It doesn't. In time, mediocrity becomes to high a standard for others and the bar gets lowered even further until you wind up with nothing but a bunch of failing underachievers.
Stop breeding mediocrity and make kids work harder to achieve their goals. Your kid strikes out 3 times in an afternoon you don't punish the pitcher because he was too good. You take your kid to the batting cage, dial the speed up a notch, take a couple hundred hacks over the week and look forward to the next time you face him.
