Would you rather have a parent who gives you constant praise for everything (even if you don't deserve praise), or a parent who never gives you praise for anything (even if you do something praiseworthy)?

No praise will better prepare a child for real life

I guess I would prefer to never be praised. I believe that's better preparation for real life. Sad.

My wife always gave our daughter constant praise - I thought she was nuts but I went along. I'm a believer.

Another question inspired by Infinite Jest. Probably the last one.

The main character has one parent of each, and he has some pretty serious parental issues as a result.

I grew up with no praise and turned out just fine. My older sister was praised for getting Cs but is was expected of me to get As and Bs.
