Squandering Talent

All those trophies the kids got because Mom and Dad paid the league's registration fees.....

All those tests re-graded because there was a game on Friday night......

All those assemblies where Feeling Good About Yourself was the theme......

All those kudos for achievement on the field without regard to behavior in the real world.....

All that emphasis on the story, not the spelling or the grammar.....

All the understanding and the individual differences and the emotional learning......

If it's not tempered by realistic expectations and consequences when the boundaries are crossed .....

You get Johnny Manziel.
