Wusification part Deux

Does 5th place in a tee ball tournament really need a trophy? What are we teaching our kids...that if you aren't the best you'll still win?

In the real world if there are five bidders an RFQ (request for quote)...and you come in 5th...YOU DON'T win a trophy. You go home and figure out what you didn't do that the customer wanted and work hard to do better so that next time you can win the bid!


  1. I agree about your wusification theory but I must tell you that the French speaker inside of me insists that I tell you that it is Wusification part "Deux". LOL I love you, make me laugh!

  2. Oops! I was looking at that and wondering if it could be right. Ha!

  3. I agree!! Our kids are missing an opportunity to learn how to handle losing. How are they going to learn to pick themselves up and work harder next time when even though they may not have worked hard enough they get a big trophie anyway?! I think some people need to do the Love and Logic classes:) Oh, by the way, I love the new picture of the sisters. You guys look beautiful!!
