Kids are winning by losing

A recent op-ed in the New York Times titled "Losing is Good for You" has a lot of people talking. The main takeaways are we're giving out too many trophies to kids just for showing up. Too many parents are shielding their kids from failure and that's a bad thing, and praising them too much. Ashley Merryman joins the panel. She wrote the op-ed and is co-author of 'Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing.' The debate comes on the same night AC360 won an Emmy Award.
