And what the other responders have said too.
You ask for opinions on your writing. You are asking us to judge your writing. You cannot have an opinion without a judgment. Therefore, when you ask for an opinion, you are asking us to make ajudgment. We do. You don't happen to like the judgment. Fair enough. But don't turn around and complain when we have done what you asked us to do.
And your response makes little sense. What do you mean, how can I tell if your piece is bad, or that it will not be good in the future? Most of us read and write enough to know bad writing when we see it, and if the grammar and punctuation and spelling is incorrect, that isn't even a matter of opinion. Bad writing isn't going to improve unless the writer herself makes an effort to improve it, and how will she know what needs work unless somebody points out the problem areas?
What you said about parents not praising their kids or worse is totally irrelevant to this discussion. Throwing in irrelevancies weakens your already-weak argument.
And as for this being a platform for debate? Well, you again asked us a question, and you are getting answers. Nobody was arguing with you until you began arguing with the answers you got.
