    No, it wastes the opportunities to instill confidence. Achievements should be celebrated.

    My parents will say congratulations, take everyone out to eat and brag to their friends but after that no mention of it. But after i do something once, they expect it again. Like when i was in the JV swim team i won gold in every meet i competed in. When i moved to Varsity i worked 100 harder just to be better than the fastest guy on the team so i could get gold again. I won silver once and my parents were like...well, you can’t win them all. But the tone was like “you’re the fastest loser”

    Well, its not a model id follow, but keeping your child grounded and humble has its place. The world isnt going to praise you for your achievements. You'll just get given more work for the same pay. Doesnt hurt to learn early on.

    Yes, they are Buddist. The child should grow up humbly. The child is supposed to live happily for life.
