In this episode the boys talk about the necessity of participation trophies and awards. We debate as to whether they are bad and what damage it is causing our future generation. We breakdown some of the reasons why schools have gone down the path of handing out 1st, 2nd, 3rd place awards, participation awards, ribbons and 8th place trophies. We explore the roadblocks ahead and evaluate what impact this has on our children.
As with most episodes, we try and uncover the “why’s” by exploring the fine intricacies and the psychological triggers that lead to this type of “award” system. This is an insightful episode that will most likely have you wanting to pick a side. No room for fence sitting on this one!
