The physical education curriculum of today’s society attempts to develop a balance between overtly aggressive programs and extreme coddling. While physical education and athleticism are a vital part of the curriculum at a public school, many communities are missing the mark when considering the method of instruction for such programs. Physical education programs should be reformed to include more reasonable levels of skill- based learning, inclusion, and healthy competition. It is important that physical education instructors focus on the essential elements of athletics through skill- based learning strategies. From these strategies, students can understand both physical and mental components that form a good athlete.
The first reason sports help kids these days is by making them have a healthy lifestyle with good food and lots of exercise. This huge, as it stops kids from always eating junk and binging T.V. Sports let kids exercise in a healthy way through the important practice and energy required in competitive sports, which is encouraged by kids desire to win and get better, and forces kids to exercise by also getting better. For example, Kirk Mango (a physical educator, former coach, and national champion) says, “fitness improvements achieved through training...In a society where obesity has become a major health issue”(Mango, 2012). This shows that sports are a good way to keep people healthy.

As Shell went deeper into the subject, she realized that not many parents give their kids freedom. Shell puts some of the fault on marketing. She argues that marketing manipulates many parents by advertising products and activities. These advertisements make parents believe that it 's the only way their kids will become "successful" and "productive adults."

This is a reason fast food companies often use subliminal advertising targeted at children. It is well known that poor eating habits in children transfer into later life; childhood obesity is one of the number one health challenges facing our young population. Consequently, a common issue that arises is often emotional and psychological, these children are often bullied by their peers and even their family. Furthermore, childhood obesity can also lead to life-threatening health conditions including diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, heart disease, and even cancer. Today’s society provides easy access to calorie dense, fattening, foods and snacks.
The purpose of this is to set an example to her audience of how she struggled and how she achieved happiness without having to harm herself. It is evident, individuals develop traumas at a young age due to the ideas being harvested by society, for instance, “By the time I was sixteen, I had already experienced being clinically overweight, underweight and obese,”(17-18) this helps the audience understand that these ideas not only traumatize a child but compels a child to feel the necessity of achieving ideal features at a young age. It is evident that for a child to be considered “... overweight, underweight, and obese...” by the age of sixteen is not healthy. Blaid explains how as a child she wasn’t affected by being called fact, until she understood what it truly meant.

Just 30 minutes of physical activity each day can not only result in weight loss, but it can make your child healthier. So, drop the remote control and grab that bicycle and go outside.
One specific area that the coaches talked about was parents restricting young athletes to one sport instead of allowing them to diversify. One coach said, “I believe that playing more sports as a young athlete only helps them become a better athlete. I am allowing my kids to play multiple sports. Kids don’t really know what they really want or what’s best for them, so they need to play, play, play.” This is one of the many indications of the shift in parental involvement in youth sport. One shift was from allowing kids to play to controlling their play, and another is the change of the parents’ goals for allowing their kids to play sports.
"Now, I don 't like to compare. Facebook and Instagram are very image-driven, so I try to avoid that.” Rojas added, “Users support one another 's self-destructive behaviors through shared tips and tricks — and promote the notion that an eating disorder is a lifestyle choice, not a serious mental illness.” We need to realize how it can lead to damaged and unrealistic ideas of women 's ultimate body’s type. Rojas added, “An estimated 30 million Americans suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder (20 million women and 10 million men) at some time in their life, according to NEDA.” It is a serious numbers that are increasing daily, and its constantly been fuel by the press. As research shows, it is an issue that the standard of beauty for women is so unreasonable.Promoting a thin standard that is not achievable or realistic could be detrimental to adolescents s health. It is important to realize that parents should limit their children’s exposure to the media, by encouraging participation in activities that promote self- esteem building.
For this reason, if a child’s parents were severely not getting along, then they definitely would not be putting all of their energy into talking with their child and, therefore the child would have a harder time developing language skills. On the other hand, if a child’s parents were to split up, then that child would have two parents that, while living in different households, concentrated their time on their child. This positive interaction “with caring, responsible adults is an essential ingredient in successful development”
