I have noticed a current trend of coddling young people who are going through a small rough patch.

I think this depends on the situation and what you define as 'coddling' and 'a smal rough patch'.

Its like young people feel entitled to receiving compliments and handouts.
For example you wake up one morning and you feel ugly, omg I need somebody to tell me that I am beautiful.
You get a standard qualification, and you expect a ceremony.

Okay let me give you an example, there was a thread about a young girl who mask her face with makeup to cover her acne.
I was saying that it was wrong to encourage her, but others were saying the opposite

It isn't worth encouraging him.

Perhaps he's referring to the acne, as a small patch of rough skin? :holmes:

More likely he's just trying to be controversial and edgy for the sake of attention

Because it is not unusual for a teenager to have acne, hence a small rough patch.

I think you're mistaking "coddling" and "encouraging" with "minding your own damn business" and "stop attempting to shame her".

They are quite different things.

No, a girl on youtube did a power of makeup video and said her acne made her unhappy but she started to love herself. Now she does makeup because it's fun.
Makeup is art. Also there's a video on youtube called you look disgusting. Even when she wore makeup people called her terrible things online.

Why would you encourage a person to mask their face with makeup, when deep down you know it can only make things worse for the long term?
You would not call her beautiful without makeup

There is no encouragement. The question was "what do you think of this girl who wears too much makeup, I think she's gross" (paraphrasing).

Ultimately her makeup is her business and no one else's - there is no encouraging going on, simply leaving her to her business. Does she wear too much make-up? Possibly. Is it any of your concern? Not in the slightest.

Do you go around suggesting to ugly women (or men?) that they put more makeup on to try and improve things?

in a way i understand as if u put make-up on acne wouldnt it make it worse, instead you should leave your skin to heal itself or something. Not sure if what i said is right?

Yes I have seen that video, I remember she did a program about cyber bullying
