I'm soooooo proud of me - a People Bug Me post
That's all I hear from some young people today - as if they are still little children in daycare. Okay, I am in one of my People Bug Me Moods - and this bugs me.
They go to work and do all the things generations before them have done, yet they have to announce to everyone, "I'm proud of myself". as if they expect me to join in and also praise their mundane achievement. It's not like they have saved a life, or done anything life changing.
It's so annoying.
Hey I was in the childcare profession for nearly 30 years in some capacity and YES, we would PRAISE the little ones for just about everything they did.
"I am so proud of you - you pooped in the big potty!"
"You used your words well. I am so proud of you."
"You ate all your dinner. Mommy is proud of you."
Blah blah blah. I honestly don't remember my parents EVER telling me they were proud of me. They told me they LOVED me. But of course my folks were tough. Why praise a child, when they are doing what they should be doing?
"You paid your taxes! Oh I am proud of you!"
"You voted. I'm proud of you."
Okay so I am part of that generation that raised up a generation, who needs to be praised about everything. It's cute when they are 2 or 3 - a bit disgusting and annoying when they are 33.
