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)?

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

No praise will better prepare a child for real life

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.

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

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.
