What about the sandwich approach...

Lets say a kid (your kid) is useless with a hunting rifle. He has done the training, got the licence, but still useless at handling the weapon. He is not listening or taking any of your advice on how to handle/treat a firearm. 

Is this how we should approach the situation? (many teachers use this approach in our schools):

1, Praise
2, Criticism (just a bit, be careful, really careful you don't offend)
3, Some more praise

After all the hunting accidents lately I am starting to wonder if all the sandwiching is actually having the reverse effect on our society. People doing things they should not be doing, thinking they doing a great job!

Entirely avoidable if you require someone to show (true) competency to own a gun in the first place.

Anyone who has ever been in the military will know that the path to competence with a gun had nothing to do with praise...

I don't believe it requires a military background to understand that!

I think at the Geekzone IRL events they should give out awards for 'Most Stupid Thread'. This one would be a clear winner.

What I was getting at is that criticism can be just as effective as praise... If the person on the receiving end isn't a mummy's boy.

It means I tend to be from the "harden up camp". If you cry when the Staff Sergeant tells you he is going to stick the sharp end of the rifle where the sun don't shine then you are a mummy's boy and would probably respond better to praise...and finding a different vocation.

Just because things are different in future, doesn't automatically make them better.

I like to think that the future is all about less PC correctness, less H&S rules, less worrying about what you can/cant say at the risk of somebody/something being offended. If its not, well then I feel sorry for our future generations.

Sadly this isn't how the world will be. Going forward it will just get worse and worse and worse and worse.. You get the idea.

I tend to agree. But I think it will eventually reach a tipping point.

By which point it will be too late, and the parasitic human race will be extinct!
