Bullying As a sports parent and youth sports coach for more than 20 years, I can share that bullying in youth sports is rampant. I 've seen bullying in youth sports coming from a few different sources: opposing team members, teammates, coaches, and parents. Bullying in youth sports can take many forms. Here are some examples: •A team member who does not perform as well as others is ridiculed. •A team member is ostracized because a "leader" on the team doesn 't like them.
This is due to their previous experience with adults who abused or molested them. A child who has been sexually assaulted will feel insecure in the society and feel that everyone is going to hurt them. They will have a little self-possession, feel lonely and irritated. Moreover, the child can sense helpless, fear losing control and lack of respect and trust in authority. It is impossible for them to trust anyone that easily because of the past experiences that they had.
Many people think that sports are healthy for kids, but that isn’t the truth. I believe that competitive sports are bad because of injuries, costs and false dreams of making it the pros. First off, competitive sports is dangerous because of the injures. Lots of kids who play sports get injured. USA Today’s article, “1.35 million youths a year have serious sports injuries states the number of kids getting injured just in the title!
This is an example of when I was younger and got hurt during a sport and they did not let me play, I was absolutely devastated. This has become a big debate around the world weather kids should be allowed to play their sports or if it is too dangerous. Some people believe that kids should drop the sports for safety reasons. However I believe these kids should participate in whichever sports they choose because 1- They are kids and kids are suppose to have fun. 2- Everyone gets hurt every once in awhile and 3- It will maybe toughen the kids up so when they get older they could maybe go professional.
Sports for the youth are getting a huge number of injuries. Parents and coaches are making kids all tensed up in a single sport. But, others think that this would teach the kid how to physically play that certain sport and push them to get better at that sport. Kids that start sports too early can lead to bad health, kids are getting pressured in the sport, kids are getting more injuries from the present then the past. Here is what the one side has to say about youth sports.
Bully is a very common thing around the United States that unfortunately all students have to go through bullying and have to suffer with this issue daily. Bullying can be physically some time with a little bit of pushing and a little bit of tripping, but then sometimes bullying can come, but with words that can cause a lot of people a lot of pain and a lot of suffering. All over our country has to suffer alone and take all the bullying to themselves. A student or a person that is bullying should reach out to some help, this can help them feel more confident in speaking up and in expressing themselves, and this can eliminate suicide attempts. A person or student getting bullied should always reach out for some help or some support so they
In Asch’s study of conformity, he shockingly found that many people will give the wrong answer to an obvious question if everyone else gives that answer before them. This can be linked to teens bullying someone despite their conscience telling them otherwise because all of their friends are doing it. Robbins highlights Whitney’s own experiences with being afraid to not do what her friends are doing, such as bully people. Since Asch’s study, scientists have delved deeper into the study of why this occurs, and Berns discovered a link between physiological experiences of fear and non-conformity. I notice myself experience even the physiological symptoms associated with
Victim blaming is something that is very common in the Dr. Larry Nassar case. Before the USA gymnastics case, former athletes who had been violated by Nassar many years later began to come forward. Many of Nassar's victims of who are suing him claim they were sexually assaulted, could have been saved from his abuse had the people they trusted chosen to put their safety and well-being first. If parents had believed their daughters, if coaches and administrators had taken seriously the complaints of their student-athletes, the assault that was occurring to athletes could have ended a lot earlier (ESPN,
Corporal punishment has been talked about for many years if parents should or shouldn’t beat their kids. Many view that beating their kids, if other ways aren’t working, is a way to bring to their attention that the parent means business. Many studies have been taken opposing the use of corporal punishment but as today’s disrespectful children may need a few spanking to put them back on track. In an article called “8 Reasons to Spank your Kid” by LaShaun. Nicole Williams she gives 8 reasons why spanking your children is a good thing.
There are many negative beliefs towards the male gender because of the stereotypes society believes in. When people hear about a news of a rape incident between both genders, they automatically assume the female is the victim and the male is the offender. They make this assumption based on real statistics - since 99% of sex offenders are male and over 80% of the victims are female (sapac.umich.edu). For this reason, parents with daughters feel skeptical when their daughters is around a male since they believe she might be forced into sexual conducts. Society believe when males have a high tendency to feel sexual pleasure, they can not control themselves and will force another individual into sexual conducts in order to satisfy their urge.
A problem arises though once try outs are over and the team is announced. Those individuals who just made the team now deal with a problem that happens mainly from the high school level all the way to the professional leagues. That problem is the issue of humiliating and victimizing “rookie” athletes through hazing rituals. These individuals go from hearing in try
But Put yourself in the parents shoes; you put all your trust and money into these coaches and colleges, and what do you get in return? A phone call home from your child pouring out to you how the coach you once trusted, is now seen as a threat because you found out he/she is physically, emotionally, or mentally abusing them? Just think about how the parents whose children were involved in the Penn State Football scandal felt. It was revealed that “On November 4, 2011, a grand jury report was released containing a testimony that former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abused eight young boys over a period of 15 years. Officials at Penn State purportedly failed to notify law enforcement after learning about some of these incidents.
Of those who did encounter discrimination, approximately three-quarters reported some lasting mental health or emotional and psychological effect.” (Carter). Being discriminated or racial profiled isn’t something pleasant, it’s insulting and just a terrible feeling to be through. Imagine everyday; constantly being targeted by the police, and getting arrested easily and getting hurt or even die just because you’re not the same race as the authorities. Everyone thought they could trust the authorities to keep them safe but instead they’re scared and they’re not safe with them. Even and school kids could be bullied and be picked on, the teachers sometimes could be very biased too.
