School children were getting anxiety attacks when they got papers returned covered with red ink.  So they changed colors to something more soothing.

Probably the same psychiatrist who recommended awards for just showing up at a competition

Red pens are not used in school anymore. They offend people.

Well, I'm offended that they get offended. Red is a beautiful color. So why force 23,000,000 teachers from using red when grading?

BTW: Black ink and blue ink offend me. (* CHUCKLE *)

Just tell them they get offended too easily and to grow up and learn to live with it!

FWIW

Don’t you hate that?  I’ve heard kids ask why they got trophies when they lost every single game in the season.

It happened a decade ago so they are adults now.

I always did.  I thought they gave children a false sense of what they could and couldn’t do.  I got them out of those sports as soon as I could.

Exactly.  And, in some ways it gives them an out for their own errors, lack of training, understand of the competition, etc.

They may be adults now, but did they ever grow up and grow out of their "being offended" stance?

Getting something without even putting in the effort.

That's going to set them up for a big failure in future life once they get out of school.
