The same ideas apply to parenting. Should we reward children for meeting goals and expectations in the home?
And to the workplace… should we reward employees for meeting goals and expectations when doing their job?
To sports… should we reward athletes for meeting goals and expectations when playing their game?

Of course we ought to celebrate success!
