competition "bad" for self-esteem of children!!!!!!!!!

Don't Tear Out The Trophy Case - Editorial, National Post - Jan 14, 2011. Teachers in 2 Canadian provinces consider it horrible that children would have to deal with competition - i.e.: winning and losing. Rather than teach them to deal with life's ups and downs, losses and wins,  they would prefer that children live as "victims" i.e: live in a level playing field of mediocrity - that is: without stress and pain. (promoting submissive existence over living).
