Another interesting trend is not keeping score for sports games. It's designed to teach the love of the game. What BS.

My point is that we keep celebrating mediocrity becuase we think it's bad to criticise kids, we think it's awful to let them come last and feel down about it. Well i don't want any kid to feel down, but i won't bow down to that and in exchange hold back very smart kids or kids who are slightly less smart but try so hard they do well.
