Interscholastic athletic participation has influenced my character in ways I never fathomed. As an athlete, failure is inevitable. Even the greatest athletes have failed at some point. As a hurdler, I have countless scars from stumbling over hurdles. Through this failure, however, athletics has taught me how to get up, move on, and learn from my mistakes.
Juvenile Experimentation and Consequences In today’s society, juveniles are being prosecuted more and more for crimes that they commit as teenagers, and even pre-teenagers. To quote Mrs. Frizzle, a child should “take chances, make mistakes, and get messy”, but in today’s society that is discouraged, and can even lead to lifelong consequences. The government views juveniles as always self aware, and can give people sentences for crimes that they commit when they are children that ruin their whole lives. The influence of government on juvenile justice is too strong, because of the lifelong consequences experimentation and mistakes can have on an adolescent. The act of sexual intercourse is a natural occurrence.
People can focus too much in sports instead of education and kids don’t understand why people yell or how to correctly interact with the commotion around them. The text “Are High School Sports Good for Kids?” stated “The general public, parents and society is placing more emphasis on winning than ever before which, at times, pressures athletic personnel to deviate from the athlete-centered educational and personal development mission.” This pressure that is mentioned can really deplete a child’s moral and mentality. However, there is still
It is important at a young age they get the education and role models that will guide them to make the right decisions in their future. Children also need to be taught to say “no” to risky situations. It is not only influences that guide teenagers to drink and drive or to ride with a drunk driver but also gender and behavior. The more risky behavior a teenager partakes in, the more likely they are to drink and drive. Teenage drinking and driving fatalities have been going down, but it is still one of the leading causes of deaths in adolescents.
Both age and ability are important when we talk about sports because for many it 's a measuring stick for whether the person will be successful in sports. Unfortunately, both of these issues have created excuses for teams not to retain a player or allow them the opportunity to try out. Ageism is a bad stereotype that has run rampant in the sports industry these days. “According to the textbook it’s an evaluative perspective that favors one age group usually younger people over others and justifies discrimination against particular age groups that are assumed to be incapable of participation (Coakley, 2017, p. 294). A prime example of this is when the Dallas Cowboys drafted Dak Prescott to replace often-injured 38-year-old veteran quarterback Tony Romo.
Golding believes that institutions are essential for the boys so they do not misbehave and to make them get along with each other. I believe that having strict law and order is worse than the mental and physiological effects it has on the world’s youth. The things that many of my peers and I experience are the stress of school, parents, and organized sports. There is pressure for turning assignments in on time, as well as the prospect of college in the near future and the anxiety that goes along with grades. All of these stressors in our lives add up, which can become too much to handle.
Young people who watch such programs on sex education with appropriate guidance from an adult are more likely to make better choices about their sex life and learn more (Singhal 2003). Since both the television and social media command a massive following among teenagers, their use in instruction can be significant. To conclude, the use of media in moral development,
Everybody always has dreams in their own life, some dreams are achievable and some are not. People without self-confidence are always scared of chasing dreams because failure is like nightmare in their minds. Nevertheless, those people will never know what did they give up, their crystalline dreams. On the other hand, people with enthusiasm always chase their dream without reasons because they will feel regret if they didn’t try; they may be successful however when they try to challenge themselves. Thus, it is important for people to chase their dreams, challenge themselves and achieve their goals.
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. Another coach also said that “parents used to let their kids play sports to have fun because the kids wanted to play. However, now parents place so much emphasis on skill development, promoting their kid, playing time, etc. that it has taken a lot of the childish fun out of youth sports and replaced it with expectation, responsibility, and parental intervention.” This “hothouse” parenting is at the root of the negative effects that can be caused by youth sports, as discussed in the previous paragraph. However, the coach with international experience disagrees with the sampling method.
Many people believe that in competitive sports most children will get injured, and so those sports are not safe. That is just not true. One reason I say this is because sports can get children and teens from areas where gangs are common from joining these gangs and getting beat up, or worse. According to the President 's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, youth sports can help deter negative behavior, such as joining a gang, because competitive sports provide an outlet for expression, friendship and controlled aggression. Additionally, sports equipment in every sport are getting more advanced, to make the game more safe for the players.
