An educational expert in Scotland has condemned the overuse of praise in education, claiming that it is creating a generation of narcissistic, self-obsessed young people.
Dr Carol Craig has said that excessive praise and the expectation on parents and educators to boost the self-esteem of children leads to the development of an "all about me" mentality, where children grow up to be selfish members of the entitlement classes.
All I'll say is "No shit, Sherlock." This is exactly the sort of thing that sensible people have been saying for years. Children need to learn about failure, otherwise they'll grow up into self-obsessed narcissists convinced that they are entitled to whatever they want and with no ability to adapt to the real world, and in response liberals forever tell us (usually with wringing hands) "No no, children need to be looked after and praised at all times. They can't be told they've done wrong, it will scar them for life." Well guess what, we followed your approach and it didn't work. We were right and liberals, as usual, were wrong.
The pathetic liberal attempt to protect the future mental wellbeing of children through wrapping them in cotton wool and protecting them from any and all criticism has, in fact, psychologically damaged a significant number of them for the rest of their lives. A generation of young people will need therapy to undo the damage you liberals have done. I hope you're satisfied.
