It is becoming almost institutional in todays world of "praise everything your child does".
"Oh; Billy that is a wonderful fire you set in the living room." Followed by a bumper sticker that says "My Child is an Arsonist at Johny be Good Elementary School".
Since when did they have graduation ceremonies from elementary schools or Jr. high?
Today's world is infected with this ego stroking BS. It is the whole thing of never telling children they are average at some things. Never telling them they are doing badly at others.
That over inflated self esteem won't help them deal with real life.
