Excessive devotion and praise toward children, just because they are children. The idea that every child is special, and everything they do is special.
"Listen, there are couple of things about kids you have to remember. First of all, they are not all cute. Yeah, in fact if you look at them closely some of them are rather unpleasant looking, and some of them dont smell good either, alright? Stay with me on this, the sooner you face it the better off you're gonna be. Second premise, not all children are smart and clever. Got that? Kids are like any other group of people, a few winners, a whole lot of losers. There are a lot of loser kids out there who simply are not gonna go anywhere. You can't save them all, you gotta let them go, you gotta cut them loose. You gotta stop over-protecting them because you are making them too soft."
