Refer to American Idol episodes early in season. Poor little Buffy is learning her lesson from Simon.

I wouldn't consider that to be true for any teachers/coaches/mentors that are worth having.

Well, to an extent anyway. My clarinet teachers and professors certainly weren't quick to lavish us with praise.

Readers of this site may also appreciate:

4-Block World

Which is in a very similar... ah... "Venn".

obloodyhell-
Looks like an okay site, except it's very right-leaning. I kind of prefer the indexed ones, they're not as opinionated. (Or at least more subdued.)

I will try to dig out the study... children should learn at first to enjoy the activity. Only if they show promise, and only later (say 12 or 13) should they be turned over to the Taskmaster. Then, the sterner the better.

I don't know if it is different for boys and girls, but I did learn that my stern taskmaster part did not work in 7th-8th grade girls' basketball, but did work for late high-school theater.
