Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison will appear on the “Steve Harvey” show Wednesday, where he will take part in a panel that discusses old-school vs. new-school parenting techniques.
Harrison made headlines during training camp last summer when he posted pictures of his children’s participation trophies with a caption that read:
“I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I'm not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best...cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better...not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy. #harrisonfamilyvalues”
Harrison was part of a discussion that also included Toya Graham, who was the subject of a viral video in which she reprimanded her son on national television for participating in the Baltimore riots.
“Steve Harvey” can be seen at 3 p.m. weekdays on WTAE-TV.
