• With: Sarah Palin

    Thanks, governor, good to talk to you.

    PALIN: Thank you so much, go West Coast.

    HANNITY: Appreciate it. OK, let me start with this. I tell you why I love sports for kids, because you learn how to win, you learn how to lose, you learn that the harder you work, the better you're going to do. It's the reward system. It's not the redistribution of wealth. Liberals today, they don't even want kids to keep score, and you can't play dodgeball because some kids --


    UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Say it isn't true.

    HANNITY: Yes, it is true, everybody gets a trophy, exactly.

    SARA MURRAY, "THE WALL STREET JOURNAL": It is one thing to push your kids to excel and want to win. It's another to put your eight-year-old outside in 99 degrees outside in Texas and work them until they vomit and then work them more. NFL officials said that clip was hard to watch, and I have to agree with them.

    HANNITY: Your husband played in the NFL, right?

    LILI GIL VALLETTA, HISPANIC MARKET STRATEGIST: Yes, he did. And I asked him about this story, and there's a thing with the context in this kids. It's formative years when you're building character. And if you want to instill hard work and discipline, it's not through fear. It's through conviction. And that's not emotionally intelligent in the way they're doing it. You need a quality person before you have a quality athlete, and the way they're going about it is definitely not instilling a quality person.

    HANNITY: I would agree, if you made the kids throw up, you probably pushed them a little too hard. But with that said, I do agree that there are kids that are pampered, they're babied, right?


    AMY HOLMES, THEBLAZE TV: I don't have children, but I have a brother, and I know that there are boys who would have a ball getting out on that field and crashing into one another. And there are boys who would be miserable at it. It comes down to the parents knowing their child, knowing what their child's limits are, working with the coach on that. I can tell you kids bursting into tears because their parents work them too hard at violin. This is about children's development --

    HANNITY: They shouldn't be playing violin. They should be playing sports. No, I'm only kidding.

    (CROSSTALK) JAIME WEINSTEIN, THE DAILY CALLER: I think it's a mixed bag with this coach here. Eight seems a little bit young. I think half of them will take it well and become future Special Forces officers. And the other half won't take it well and become future serial killers.

    HANNITY: How many think American kids generally speaking, when they all get a trophy, they don't keep score, you can't play dodge-ball, that we're pampering them?


    MICHELLE FIELDS, NEXTGENERATION.TV: That's how Occupy Wall Street was, right? They just want more and more and more and they don't want to work hard for it. We have this entitlement mentality among people my age.

    LYNN STERN, DIVAMOMS.COM FOUNDER: I have two young boys, a 6-year-old and a 10-year-old. I have to tell you, my 10-year-old is a hardcore athlete.

    HANNITY: By the way, you're about to have a baby.

    STERN: And we're having a third.

    HANNITY: And your 10-year-old, what kind of sport does your daughter play?

    STERN: My son is a baseball player. I have to tell you, we see this all the time. But there is a happy medium behind this, and this show is an atrocity, I'm sorry, for children, for parents out there, because they are pushing these kids, they are cursing at these kids. That's not what the coaches, that's not what the parents should be doing.

    BORIS EPSHTEYN, REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST: It's mostly staged and the coaches are playing it up. I'm lucky enough to have played high school football, college football, you had very tough coaches, good coaches who I am still close to who helped me become the person I am now. Sometimes they screamed, and sometimes they took it down a notch. You have to know what to do.


    AYLENE SENGER, THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION: As Michelle pointed out, this type of parenting is leading to an entitlement society because young adults went out and voted for Obama in droves, and look at what we have today.

    HANNITY: And they get to stay on mommy --


    SENGER: It's an entitlement society and entitlement mentality.

    HANNITY: And they get to stay on mommy and daddy's insurance until they're 90.
