Jens and I discuss a hot topic. Yes, ribbons can help many kids stay in sports but for how long?
When kids are told just show up, you don't have to listen, you don't have to try, you don't have to learn anything, what is this teaching our kids?
What are ribbons really doing for their motivation?
I can remember being conflicted myself by them. So, if I don't try I get one and a trophy but I want to win. So do the kids that want to stay in the sport motivate them?
What about the kids who are intrinsically motivated.?
We discuss where this goes... and when we have guests on we ask them about the ribbons...... you should hear their attempts at diplomatic answers.
