Summary In “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” Jessica Statsky tries to demonstrate the negative effect of organized sports on the physical and psychological health of growing child. She claims that the games are not festive but they end up in the wrong development of a child’s brain. The coaches and parents have high hopes for their children that result in the pressure building. This changes the purpose of sports from teaching tolerance, teamwork and sportsmanship to merely winning by all means. The writer further explains that the idea of winning sometimes causes severe injuries that may prevail for a lifetime.
For example, maybe they are always late to work or they curse too much, though these are negligible traits, they demonstrate an misguides on the child ,who will start to think this behavior is acceptable and start to pick up on it. Another example is when parents disregard certain things that they do. This is a major issue that I spectate in school, kids have horrible grades or they are disrespecting teachers and say “Call my mom, she already knows, she don't care.” It shows that they parents are letting them behave this way with no concern, when it should be an issue because they should be attentive about their children's grades and future. Therefore, if the parent disregard the negligible activity, then how can the child if they believe they won't suffer any consequences for their actions. Parents should influence their child to be exceptional and it displays a lot about their morals when they display carelessness about their children's
They live for the nursery” (Bradbury 3). This quote shows how much the kids love the nursery and how they don’t spend that time with their parents. The kids have lost the respect and love for their parents instead they would rather be in the nursery. This shows that respect is vital to the growth of
There is a saying that goes, “Spare the rod, spoil the child.”, which means children will only grow better when parents are harsh. It seems that severe parenting is essential in cultivating their child which making room for them to achieve success. In point of fact, children relatively get a poor academic result under strict parenting comparing with other parenting styles. Supported by a study from two kindergarteners, Melissa Kamins and Carol Dweck (1999), children performed worse on problem-solving tasks when they were given sets of rules. Another study of adolescents in the San Francisco Bay Area also showed that authoritarian parenting style was linked with lower school grades (Dornbusch et al 1987).
"I think as a parent I would feel uncomfortable if my daughter came home and said, 'My school is changing my personality, ' " Crede says this is berating Duckworth. By this Crede is denigrates grit is being over exaggerated and its being repetitive with things we already figured out.¨But, psychologists say conscientiousness isn 't a skill. It 's a trait — driven by some unknowable combination of genetics and environment. It can change, typically improving as children grow up, but it 's not necessarily amenable to direct instruction.¨This is evidence for the fact of it talks about the psychology behind grit and that it is no guaranteewe can precipitate. Also you can’t guarantee that they will be able to teach others and that’s how you’re
Family,teachers, friends, just one person who gives them the power to believe in themselves will save them. One thing that parents need to understand which is also implied in The secret to raising smart kids by S.Carol Dweck, that sometimes parents discourage their own children. Sometimes the parents expect too much, and give them nothing for them to grip on or hold onto this long rope of anxiety and paranoia. It may seem like an exaggeration but what I say is nothing but the truth since I live in a strict household, which is aside from the point of course. There has to be an understanding that students will make mistakes, that I don 't doubt.
Moreover, the article assumes that children are obedient to their parents. If teenagers are rebellious, it will be very difficult to correct their behaviors by using physical punishment. Such hypothesis weakens the argument of this study because of the assumptions. Therefore, the evidence claiming that corporal punishment helps to control children’s discipline does not seem to be strong
Levine claims that these children are looking up to gang members and drug dealers as a way of life, knowing that their are no educational requirements to fulfill these positions (20). These poor students are simply seeing school as a must do for the time being, and not seeing the the value of the education they could be receiving if they had a better role model to look up to. Similarly, Graff asserts that students are not connecting with Shakespeare or the French Revolution, these students do not value the information because it does not pertain to them; However, sports, fashion or dating interests these students and have values to them (245). Schools and colleges are not connecting the dots. The values they set into the education system no longer interest students.
When considering the choice of whether or not students should get paid for good grades, the choice should definitely be no, students shouldn’t get paid for grades. One reason being that students should want to learn without always thinking they’re going to get money. Another reason is that students are remaining focused on money and not education when it should be the other way around. Though, there are many reasons as to why children shouldn’t get paid for grades. If students and others disregard the topic that children shouldn’t get paid for good grades, it will be their own problem and it can negatively affect a students future due to not having certain life skills and will only end up hurting them in the long run.
When these students plagiarize others work they render themselves unable to truly understand the material. The purpose of going to school is to prepare students for life and give them the necessary knowledge they need to succeed. If you simply copy someone 's work, it eliminates the whole learning aspect because none of the work is your own doing. Along with that, you lose the potential knowledge and skills that could help you later in life. The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education.
These people ignore that while the real world can be a very corrupt place, it is also a place of democracy and equal opportunity, two things that are very limited in schools with zero tolerance policies. Zero tolerance policies don’t allow for differentiating between students, which is arguably one of its major problems (Saenz). By responding to every behavioral problem the same, the potential reasoning behind those misbehaving is continuously ignored. “We end up punishing honor students to send a message to bad kids. But the data indicate that the bad kids are not getting the message.” — Professor Russell Skiba
