According to the article “Student Competition: Why No One Wins When Everyone Wins” it states “If everyone is placed on a unilateral performance scale, then students may never be motivated to challenge themselves. By creating opportunities for healthy competition, students are given a reason to try harder and to do better. Another significant benefit to competition is the lessons students will learn from losing. It is okay if they are upset because they lose. What this will do is serve to teach that they don’t need to be afraid of losing—that at some point everyone goes through a loss.
In other words the author of this article is saying that coaches that may want to win no matter what will have a negative effect on the young players, this will not help children develop any skills but may lead the child to think that winning is necessary and losing is no good. A study by Matthew Bowen, a clinical assistant professor at the University of Texas, shows the link between how creative a person is and how their childhood was spent in regard of sports. 100 undergraduate and graduate students were asked to complete a survey about their childhood leisure activities.
Moreover, childhood is the only age we are able to enjoy and have fun doing activities so why are the parents taking away the golden age of children. When we grow up, we will not even have time for ourselves let alone our families. This is basically torturing them from the time they are born, how can we expect them to be happy when we decide everything for them? Not every child is keen on learning; they may prefer having fun, being free and not objectified with what they do. Parents should know better as they were once children as well.
According to Jessica Statsky’s essay titled Children Need to Play, Not Compete, most children under the age of 12 do not need competition in sports. Claiming that organized sports are not “satisfying nor beneficial” for young children, Statsky expresses her concerns over a few issues. Supporting her thesis, Statsky discusses the negative physical and psychological effects of competitive sports. She further asserts that most children do not enjoy competition by citing a study about how most children would prefer to be on a losing team that allowed everyone to play rather than a winning team that may bench them due to performance. Also, she states ‘scorekeeping, league standings, and the drive to win bring(s) out the worst in adults’.
In the rat race of today, every one seems to only focus on winning. They forget the main goal of playing is to establish the concept of teamwork, sportsmanship, and collaboration with the fellow players. I believe that the truly alarming fact is the extent to which parents are in favour of these kinds of sports activities that they ignore the health issues their children will face. They put an enormous amount of pressure and expect nothing but the best from them. This causes a lot of mental health issue when little children fail to come up to the desired expectations.
You are fascinated by all the toys you see and wish they were all yours, but then you come upon this toy you pause and admire it .Then you grab it off from the self ,hug it and run to your parents with it. They see that sparkle in your eye from how much you want it but they look at you and say we can’t afford it or maybe next time, but we all know there is no next time. B. That is exactly what happened every time I asked for a toy; I never got it due to money problems. As I progressed in age, I started to realize that toys weren’t going to benefit me ,that I needed to focus on my education which is the key to success.
However, there is a conflict that endures since when the first polemic video game was created. Some people believe that brutal video games do not influence children and teenagers’ thoughts and actions in their everyday life. Nevertheless, others argue that these types of games are bad for children’s brains and can turn them into more violent people besides other terrible consequences. Believing or not, these types of games are the most sold in all globe. Everything overdone, over spoken, and over thought is bad for us in some way, because we always have to give up something in order to complete the objective we want.
And That’s Okay,” that the stigma of kids being able to grow up and be whatever they want to is wrong and hurts the kids instead. She summarizes this by quoting Daniel Kahneman as he says that “Success = Talent + Luck. Great success = A little more talent + A Lot of Luck.” Kid’s books usually show the main character being anything they want which shouldn’t be ingrained into kids. Most of the time there is a minimal role played in their own success which causes “overly-ambitious goals … [to] be harmful” (Reischer). Everyone’s destiny doesn’t reflect their internal qualities, Reischer uses her own experience, data, and word choice to explain how society affects kids.
The advantage of permissive parenting is that the children are freely able to express themselves with their parents and they are outgoing, the disadvantage of that is children take advantage of the power they have with their parents and they end up not respecting them, another disadvantage is that they won’t excel in school because they will be too lazy to study or to do work. An example of permissive parenting is when a three year old, let’s say his name is Mark, is playing with his friend Jack, Mark decides to grab Jack’s toy and hits Jack a permissive parent like Mark’s mom, will not do anything about it but rather just ignore the situation and that shows that Mark is not being taught right from wrong (Schnell,
For children, the tendency to imitate a strong, important and successful person is greater than to imitate a weak, infamous and unsuccessful one. Cartoon characters are created in such a way that the children feel a greater urge to imitate them. Even if these characters are violent, this tendency to imitate is still strong. Children do not consider the situations in which these characters are, whether they are fighting wars or killing enemies. Parents have actually seen young children trying to drown their own siblings because they saw a cartoon hero drowning the
