    I think the athletics that are actually competitive tend to now give participation trophy’s, it is mostly rec leagues that give these out.

    0:36 The same Jesus who said "in this world you will have tribulation but fear not, I have overcome the world." Jesus came into a world full of tribulation and when he left the world was still full of tribulation. He never said "I'm going to take away all the tribulation" instead, we learn and grow through those tribulations. People like this lady want to take away that which grows kids into adults with the ability to cope with tough situations.

    It is today's parents and our education system. They teach these so-called kids that it is ok to fail. It is not ok to fail but only to succeed. The parents today are fucking pussies themselves. And it shows in their own child. Have you ever heard the saying "The child is a product of their parents" well proof is in the pudding and it is mainly fucking libtards and SJWs. It shows how weak they really are as parents and should have their children taken away for this as well. They are bad parents.

    Women should have NOTHING to do with males after the age of about 9. THATS enough wussie. Id be happy to keep a mother away from boys after 5, but 9 is being generous.
    Moms are weak. They raise weak children that become NOTHING!!
    See all the grandmas that raise boys. Eventually they overcompensate and become uber-masculine predators and spend life in prison.
    Sorry moms.
    Sparta was closer to the truth than your weakness.
    "You arent as good. Try harder", not "Be weak. You get a trophy no matter what. Be safe."
    Keep your little precious 2.14 kids safe.
    I have my 6 kids and i hope none die off so the other kids learn that life is real. But that is what it takes.
    Our family has died so you can be here now.
    Our famy has killed so you can be here now.
    This woman is weak. Her boys will get fucked in their butts. Her girls will only be satisfied with electrical appliances.
    Fuck Her and Her Decendants.
    The meak shall die.
    That is Real.

    This was put on here in 2016 and its now Sept 2018 and the pussification of america is only getting worse. I see it every day at work. The boys act like little girls, they think that they are owed somehing just for showing up for work, and if the boss tells them to get off their phones and do some work they file a complaint saying your picking on them. This is what happens when you give out participation trophies idiot liberals, and tell kids that you are gender neutral, and everything you do is great. If i had acted like most of these sissies act today my father and mother would have kicked my butt and rightly so. Listen hard liberal kooks. IN THE REAL WORLD NOT EVERYONE IS A WINNER, and sometimes you have to SUCK IT UP AND DEAL WITH A BAD SITUATION YOU BUNCH OF LITTLE TURDS. As far as I'm concerned any parent that believes in this kind of crap are unfit to be parents period.

    When I was a kid I played football & baseball. I won numerous trophies. Then, one year I was on a crappy baseball team and we did not make the playoffs. At the end of the season, when we had our annual award dinner where the teams would get their trophies for first, second and third. That year they gave out "participation trophies" to all the kids in the league. I liked it when I got it because I was used to getting trophies. But then I got home and looked at the trophies on the shelf in my room. Trophies that I had actually earned with my teammates from previous years. I took the participation trophy and stuck in my dresser drawer. Years later, me and some friends were lighting off a some fireworks and I went and got that trophy out of my dresser, drilled a hole in it and stuffed an M80 in the hole, then blew it to pieces. Not winning, not getting an "A" for effort compels a normal child or person to try harder. To work harder. Ask for help or guidance. The result is, the challenge makes us excel. That is what sets us up for success later in life. When these "everyone gets a trophy, everyone is special" kids grow up and go to college or enter the work force, they are going to be in for a massive shock. The rules won't be the same. College professors and employers expect results. You get a diploma based on grades. When you get a job, your salary and your raises are based on performance. Thus the term "merit raise". That is reality. When that woman's kid is 30 years old, living in her basement, she will still be telling him he is special, and how it is unfair that no employer will pay him just for showing up.

    I got trophies for winning the Pinewood Derby... something I was good at and legitimately built the fastest car multiple years in a row. Then in soccer I got “participation trophies”... I wasn’t good at soccer, I just filled a place on a roster. Take a wild guess which trophies are on display and which have been permanently lost in the pile of never-opened moving boxes?
    Teaching competition in a healthy manner is a good thing. If a kid consistently loses at something, as the parent you need to use that as a learning opportunity: either figure out what you’re doing wrong and fix it, or recognize what skills you do and don’t have then go capitalize on the skills you DO have. It’s not about “giving up”, it’s about learning to use what you have in the best way possible, and to adapt to the situation. The best entrepreneurs know when to cut losses on a bad plan and change tactics. It’s not about the loss... it’s about what you do in response. How do you learn, adapt, grow, and overcome?
    Getting back to my trophies: it’s not that I “gave up” on sports. I learned that athletic ability is not my strength, but I have mechanical ability in spades. So I pivoted to what I was good at. Turns out there is a sport where mechanical ability helps, and that’s mountain biking. So I still get outside/active and it leverages my strengths. I also turned those strengths into a successful career in aerospace engineering. Just don’t ask me to run and kick a ball. 😉 I learned from the failures, adapted, grew, and became successful.

    New rule: Atheists and liberals are not allowed to use Jesus as part of their argument. The fact that she called Jesus, the same man who stood strong for his beliefs, even in the face of persecution, a wuss, shows she is completely ignorant to anything Jesus did throughout his life. You can not use something that you know nothing about as part of your argument.

The only trophy is first second and third are the consolation price. Can you name a bronze medal athlete that you are not best friends with or related to. It's all bullshit wuss affacation. I never got a first prize, I survived. I strived for one but I was not good enough. Did I get anything from striving, of course i did. I enjoyed it you idiot. Keep your verbal vomit to yourself. How insulting to get a fourth place price or participation award.

    “Jesus was the biggest wuss of all time”
    she’s clearly never even read the words of Jesus.
    “Fear Not man who can kill the body, but fear God who can kill the body and soul and cast both into hell”
    “Unless you repent you will in no wise enter the kingdom of heaven”
    “I would that you were hot or cold but because you’re lukewarm I will spew you out of my mouth”

    Also remember that time he chased all the thieves out of the temple?
    The Jesus she is referring to is the fake Jesus portrayed by Hollywood and other people who have never read the Bible.
    Jesus was no wuss.

    JESUS was a wuss? And wuss is a HOMOPHOBIC TERM NOW? Bitch you need to be put in the looney bin you crazy ass hoe. I don't know about you, but being nailed to a cross for hours and hours doesn't seem like a very wuss thing to me.
    Shouts out to those little kids who burned the participation trophies lmao, smart fucking kids. It IS an insult. Kids in general though are so much smarter than we ever give them credit for. They are idiot chimps in adults' heads but they truly are so much more intelligent than we ever recognize. Just think back to when YOU were a kid. What were YOUR emotions? Did you know what certain things meant? And most importantly, did you ever feel insulted when an adult treated you like an idiot? The- "Oh thats so good, honey!"'s and the "Oh you're becoming a BIG BOY/GIRL now AREN'T you, honey??"'s when you stared back into their shit-stained faces knowing exactly what they were doing?
    I was in elementary school during the years 2007-2011, and at one point, probably 3rd or 4th grade, we had a spelling bee. I was the first one to go up, almost crudely; and the man at the microphone began saying the word for me to spell. I never understood what word he said, even today, but I heard "bowl" "bald" anything else that starts with a b for that matter. I never spelled the word right, because I never knew what he said. Note, I was a good fucking speller (excuse my french) and that is why I was there. I wasn't dumb, but I didn't understand a single fucking word he said from his mumbling tone, so I was the first one in, and the first one to go out. They gave me a piece of paper stating some shit congratulating me or some garbage and I honestly felt worse walking down that stage having that in my hand, than I would've if I had absolutely nothing at all. I felt like ripping that thing to shreds. To absolute shreds. Fuck participation rewards.

    Get wamen out of the education system. At least start with segregation from boys and girls school. Boys and girls learn differently. Boys need MEN to teach them. Over 70% of the criminals are from single parent homes and most of them are single mother raised. It just shows that women can't raised boys to men. Single mother raised boys to soy men or criminals...

    This needs to be pointed out more. We don't raise our kids to be men and women anymore, we're raising them to be soft and unable to perform in an adult society that recognizes true achievement. We fail to discipline emotions and insist on letting them "express themselves" and run wild thinking it will benefit society, when in reality it just leads to a bunch of "adults" who can't control their emotions and shoot up offices and schools because they encountered something hard. We take away the natural consequence of so many valuable life lessons in the name of progress, but it only damns the individual from truly progressing.

    2:58 Obviously it is not true of babies when you can laugh about a "dad" that swirls his little one around, which can result in brain and neck damage.
    There is a fine grained line between wussification (or pussyfication) and sound concern. There is a line between confrontation with reality (which every parent should practice) and bringing up some wild animals. And a dad that lets his six-year-old steer the motocycle that is outright reckless, and it will teach recklessness and irresponsibility.
    Funny, isn't that what those people think the youth of today lacks?
