Unpopular opinion, but as much as I loved getting stickers when I was young, I don't think we should continue to give children praises for every small achievement. I say this because then we cause a generation full of entitled people that act like children when theyre adults. I mean for god sakes in my university, people didn't want Christina Hoff Sommers because she brought up opinions that would"traumatize" and they set up safe rooms. I means these are our nations future. They will be professional victims such as those same people SJWs and Special snowflakes are. And then theyll want to censor anyone who has a different view than them and will throw a tantrum if they don't get what they want. Excuse my little rant.
@Master Alucard, I think this is the popular opinion now, not the unpopular one. Just wait twenty years and it will change back.
@Master Alucard, Noone has any real pride anymore, everyone just sees using their disadvantages as a means to try and gain a more powerful position without actually having to work for it. Noone seeks to change themselves for the better anymore and instead embraces the things that make them such burdens on society and demonizes anyone who tries to confront them about it. It's a sad thing to see, but it's not going to change anytime soon and I'll be dead before I see the worst of it, so im just going to enjoy the life I have with the things I earned myself.
@Master Alucard, I think that we should stop giving praise for small things when kids it 5 years old because at that age they can start to accept reality a little bit more
@Master Alucard, I was going to make an intelectual response, but im too drunk to figure it out.
@Master Alucard, I agree to an extent...but I don't think the stickers are the biggest culprit.
@Master Alucard, yes!
@Master Alucard, it's good to praise kids. They need praise to have self esteem later in life and be well balanced. That being said, praise should be kept for important things like learning something new or doing something especially well instead of swooning every time the kid farts. They also need to understand the world doesn't revolve around them.
@HolyCatchphrase, Yes, exactly. Praise them for the important issues, show them the world isn't all about them and teach them to have respect for themselves, those around them, and their country. And most importantly, teach them that people have other opinions, and one must listen and think as well as reason and use logic. You're a good person. You get it. I like you. Lets have kids
I need a "I didn't go on a homicidal rampage" sticker
"I stubbed my toe last week while watering my spice garden and I only cried for 20 minutes"

Where's the, "I got a vasectomy and jogged home." Button.

@Leedler of the night, thank you. Not sure if I can even edit it. After I hit reply I wished I had proofread it.
I need a sticker for "got a new job"
@a shiny haunter, good job *pat pat*
"I eat a bowl of nails for breakfast w/o any milk."
As a man, I too was brave for my pap smear
Did we really need the IUD
I'm 25 and still haven't earned the "A+ grown up" sticker and I don't think I ever will.
Hard? That's not the only thing hard. Am I doing this right?
