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.
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
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. The research is still inconclusive due to how little we know about the brain, so this reasoning has valuable intentions, but no solid
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.
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.
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
you don’t hit it on top,side,or back you hit in the front of your forehead. 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.
Sure kids are going to get hurt sometimes but by not letting them play sports is like taking away their freedom. 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
Risks are an everyday occurrence. The poem “Risks” and the second chapter “ A boy and a Man” of Banner in the Sky interact together. Both have to do with taking risks to achieve a goal. In A Boy and a Man James Ramsey Ullman, the author tells about people doing things that no one has ever done. This is an example of a Risk.
In the journal article, Tim Gill wrote about the society and also about the safety of children playing outside affecting child’s growth. All the safety was design to prevent injuries and protect children but actually children are getting more fragile because of the overprotective adults. He even showed concrete evidence to support his statement. Playground becomes too safe that more broken limbs among children occur these days and they have more scars. In addition to restricted freedom, children change in attitude to take risk in society which means they are afraid to take any risk in what they are doing in real world.
The border between the United States and Mexico is nearly 2,000 miles long. Over the past few years, the United States had form a policy called Secure Fence Act to prevent drug sellers and terrorists out of America (Clifford). The act constructed fences to cover about one third of the border between Mexico and America along California, New Mexico, Texas and so on. Unfortunately, there were less environmental considerations when making the policy. The Los Angeles Times reported that in additional to build the fences, the United States government has been eluded over thirty environmental and cultural laws (Campbell).
