This is typical Dr. Spock BS. Those who want to retire to their Sedona Arizona sweat lodges, use talking sticks and channel the superior intellect of dolphins are idiots.

EVERYONE FINDS it more difficult to reach academic success or athletic success or financial success or romantic success, or social success; etc. etc. etc. Guess what the world will not/ cannot adjust long enough to pick us up, dust us off pat us on the tushy, tell us we're wonderful and send us on our way after a sweet motherly kiss on the forehead.

Frustration, disappoint and shame have value to society. Yes some crumble under their own mediocrity. But the shakers and movers, the inventors, the entrepreneurs use the frustration, disappointment and shame they feel as rocket fuel to self-improvement, achievement and adding value to society.

My Dad never shamed me for my failures. He just wanted to know 2 things
1) Was I tired of my shortcomings and the disappointing results?
2) How could he help me improve?

So Mayor DeBlasio, stay the HELL away from my grandkids.

I have found that some people are too comfortable where they are at and have no motivation to move up or improve. Then there are those who don't like where they are and do everything they can to improve and move up. Honor rolls or other rankings are something to strive to reach. We all need a target.
