Participation trophies diminish the meaning of winning and produce a lack of motivation among our youth today. Though rewarding all players with a trophy is counteractive, positive reinforcement is not. Positive reinforcement is key in the process of encouraging adolescents to continue to pursue the sport they are playing. The winners should receive a trophy to endorse their hard work and accomplishment; those who lost, but kept playing, should receive a non-materialistic item such as a pizza party or ice cream to acknowledge their determination when playing the game. Without loss, there is no motive to
Imagine a world where everyone would get a trophy for participating in sports. The world would be a bad place to be in because every kid would expect trophy even if they didn 't work hard. More and more sport districts are starting to do this method, and this method is not right. This is not a good thing to do for kids because kids will have unhealthy competition, Participation trophies will not show that you worked hard to get it and Kids get stuck on always getting a trophy when one day the won 't and they will be heartbroken. Although some may argue that always winning and getting a prize is a good thing because it will boost a kids confidence.
Summary In “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” Jessica Statsky tries to demonstrate the negative effect of organized sports on the physical and psychological health of growing child. She claims that the games are not festive but they end up in the wrong development of a child’s brain. The coaches and parents have high hopes for their children that result in the pressure building. This changes the purpose of sports from teaching tolerance, teamwork and sportsmanship to merely winning by all means. The writer further explains that the idea of winning sometimes causes severe injuries that may prevail for a lifetime.
Trophies should not be awarded simply for participation because trophies lose their meaning when everyone gets one, kids aren’t motivated to succeed, and kids need to learn how to lose. When every child gets a trophy, they lose their value. For example, in the article “Should Everyone Get a Trophy” by Lauren Tarshis, Dr. Michelle Anthony, an author and psychologist, and Karen Coffin, a youth sports coach, agree that, “trophies can lose their meaning when everyone gets one.” In essence, if
If students and others disregard the topic that children shouldn’t get paid for good grades, it will be their own problem and it can negatively affect a students future due to not having certain life skills and will only end up hurting them in the long run. Children should most likely not be paid for grades because so many negative outcomes are to follow with it and it is just seen as a good deal in the short
Once you are an adult and you're out on your own and you make a mistake and you fail, you'll think that its all going to be okay, someone will come and fix it, once you realize no one is there to fix it and no one is going to be there to tell you it's okay, you're going to feel like a failure, something that you've never felt before because for your entire life, everything has been handed to you. Handing out trophies like its going out of style is a big mistake. Children are our future, raising them on participation trophies will improve nothing, do nothing but destroy children and their future. As soon as they fail and realize that it's not okay, they will no longer be confident in themselves or in anything that they do. Part of success is confidence in failure, knowing that you will succeed if you just try again , even if you fail more than you'd like to admit.
For example, maybe they are always late to work or they curse too much, though these are negligible traits, they demonstrate an misguides on the child ,who will start to think this behavior is acceptable and start to pick up on it. Another example is when parents disregard certain things that they do. This is a major issue that I spectate in school, kids have horrible grades or they are disrespecting teachers and say “Call my mom, she already knows, she don't care.” It shows that they parents are letting them behave this way with no concern, when it should be an issue because they should be attentive about their children's grades and future. Therefore, if the parent disregard the negligible activity, then how can the child if they believe they won't suffer any consequences for their actions. Parents should influence their child to be exceptional and it displays a lot about their morals when they display carelessness about their children's
Katniss also believed that the games were an unnecessary event and the districts should not continue supporting it. Effie disagrees with her beliefs towards the games and forced her to compete. Bigotry is also present in the novel, Ender's Game. Bean, the main character does not want to be seen as a murderer or have other people dislike him for what he is being forced to do. On page 108, Ender says to another character Dink, “It’s the teachers, they’re the enemy.
One example is if you are not as good as the other kids, the better kids might make fun of you and then you feel like you are nothing and when that happens you feel as worthless like a bump on a log. Another example is when you mess up you have that kid that bullies just for the heck of it and then you're self esteem goes lower because you feel embarrassed in front of the whole team. The last example according to Why I don't Want My Kid To Play competitive sports is you might not have fun because kids are being mean to you and then everything goes downhill from
Because this job is dirty, he or she is thought to be stupid or poor. Paradoxically, people prevent relatives from going to the labor like Hercules while calling it "the salt of the sea" (n.p). At the request of parents, the youth goes on the same direction: colleges or universities, which are believed to provide a safe environment laying the foundation of useful knowledge and shaping characteristics. Silent debates between chasing dreams or living up to family’s expectation inside each individual result in risky decisions. However, in my point of view, some kids choose to go to work as an excuse for being too lazy to study.
Ramifications of chasing traditional rewards in, “How Not to Get into College”, “Somnambulist”, and “Iced- Cream” “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s dream”. Implying that The authors develop the message that people assume extrinsic rewards equal joy and satisfaction in their lives. However, their intentions ultimately lead to lives filled with regret, and disappointment in the process of achieving their goals.

Even though it seems like a good idea to fill kids up with sayings like ‘Everyone 's a winner!’ because that is inaccurate it will affect them now and as they transition into adults. Body Participation trophies seem like a great motivator at first, but it will start to wear off. Kids are smart and later as the season goes on, children start to care less about trying because they know they will be rewarded anyways. Not only do they underachieve, but their passion, competition, and desire for victory is lost because, why bother if everyone a trophy? Even though the participation trophies do help with participation, that is all it does.
One of which is so no problems occurr in the program, because when someone is disrespectful they make others frustrated with them and arguments begin (which is never ever a good thing for a group program). Also, being disrespectful to a peer is downright degrading. You will make people feel bad about themselves, then in return the will give up. If everyone is just respectful to each other things will run more smoothly and the results will be much more positive. But besides from being dedicated and respectful, you also need to be really truly dedicated to what you are doing.
