You need courage to go up to a new person and talk to them, asking your boss for a raise or promotion, or going new places on your own. Courage seems to be easier to learn as a child because as a child you don’t think of the consequences to your actions and just do it. The shift towards safer playgrounds has also effected courage. Playgrounds are also supposed to be new experiences for children where they face the danger of the monkey bars or a firemen’s pole. These can be dangerous pursuits for a child, the risk of injury is there, but it is not very great.
When one faces fear, both processes happen concurrently. The steps that are taken for the first process, are to avoid the chance of danger or risk completely. For instance, eliminating all possible dangers to children on playgrounds as John Tierney explains in his article, “Can a Playground Be Too Safe.” It's far less dangerous to remove all possible dangers, rather than let children experience fear and pain. In the article, John Tierney explains how removing high obstacles from playgrounds has a negative impact on children because when they are faced with a situation they don’t know how to react or
But there are ways to prevent it and hopefully the number of severe injuries like concussion, paralysis and heat illness. All parents should be informed on the potential risks of the particular sport their child is enrolled in. In the book Concussion Management the Team Plan it say “The student/ athlete’s risk of a concussion can not be eliminated, but the risk can be reduced.” This is good for parents, athletes and coaches to know because they can then know that they can be reduced it’s not just luck. High school sports can be dangerous causing severe injuries at a young age, lead to health problems later in life but it all could be prevented with proper training, equipment and
Understandably, these parents are looking out for their children’s future, but the child’s safety should be prioritized. Another argument is that children engage in dangerous behaviors every day; if football is banned, then so should biking and other exercises. Football isn’t the only risky activity that kids do: they run, climb, and jump off anything in which they can hit their heads. So why shouldn’t they play football? Also, some argue that a child can heal much better than an adult so when they do injure themselves, they will heal completely.
This is an example of how a child could be negatively by the No Pass, No Play rule. The No Pass, No Play rule requires students to acquire excellent grades to play sports. Children in the same situation as Frances could be discouraged to try in school or even drop out of school. Sports may seem alarming at first glance, but digging deeper, it is present that sports aid children in their present and future endeavors. Not everyone lives the same lives.
Many argue that the ALICE response program just exposes students to things situations that will cause unnecessary stress and fear. During the training, students are taught how to handle a situation where they is an armed intruder in their school. Many parents do not want these drills in place because they “don’t want to expose their young children to such discussions of violence” (Blad). The whole idea of a intruder coming into schools and trying to harm them is very scary, especially when your school is going over in detail how to defend yourself in a situation because the training can make it seem much more likely to occur. The training makes this situation seem much more real, which causes students to be scared and worried when they come to school because they may think they will be shot.
For parents to keep their children safe they should not let their kids play tackle football until they are twelve. Kids also should be careful and care for their own health even it means losing their career. Kids should not let the desire of playing tackle at a young age affect their future goals. First, researchers have realize that starting football at a young age affects them as they get older and older. Kids from the age 11 and below still don't have fully developed brains and tackling, getting knock down, and always having physical contact will affect the way of how the brain will develop.The age of twelve is a very important year for the brain development.
This action from the little child shows how competitive sports have psychological dangers and can cause children to harm themselves in order to stay out of the game. When parents start their children at a young age, it can cause their child to find ways out of playing and sometimes it can be very harmful to their health and well
Players 7-10 years old shouldn’t head the ball but 12 and up they can I think that should be a rule. I would think this would be a rule because 7-10 year old soccer players are too young to headbutt til there 12 I think that’s when they should start to headbutt. It can be dangerous to headbutt, and that’s why people worry but the people should know that either way they can get hurt it’s not just the it’s not always the head. Some players got worse injuries than just a concussion so I don’t think people should worry and get their kids a
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.
