The children have been welcoming to participation awards although they stop growth and potential. By expecting to receive trophies just for participating the youth will start to indulge in noncompetitive behavior. They will amass a low work rates because receiving an award will become an expectation and not a privilege. The youth will start to become lazy and they will acquire bad attitudes when they are not congratulated. Stopping growth and cutting
These goals, saving money or working part-time while going to school, provide purpose for these individuals. Just as Benjamin E. Mays said, “It must be borne in the mind that the tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.” I think that you need success in your life to do anything because imagine if you never had success, not even a little bit; life would be miserable and not interesting. I am trying to succeed at working toward being a better gamer, I play a lot of games so I
Some students are hard headed and might not do it anyway. You can 't put a hold on somebody 's future just because they did not want to do something they was not interested in. In order to volunteer, you have to believe and want it for yourself. Volunteering is giving back to something you love, rather than something you want to destroy. It displays your true character and the things you are interested in.
The child will be focused on being the best at everything that they will not notice, or if they do they do not dwell on it too much. After the child is done being the best of their academic setting they graduate and find employment. They will still have the mindset of everything being a competition and will surpass their coworker where the trend will continue. In summary with the mindset that everything 's a competition, the child will focus only on being the best and that is all they will know. They will not have social skills because they would see no benefit of being friendly with their
However, earning your position, being undeserving of playing time, and coaches trying to win in their respected program are all issues that need to be thought of before people begin fighting for equal playing time. High school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all players who make the team. Kids in society have been handed things their entire life. There has been little to no sense of accomplishment after earning a spot or position on a team. Spots should be earned by being the best at what someone does, not for pitty and for moral victories to make them feel good.
Summary “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” by Jessica Statsky is a thoughtful insight on the competitive sports for children. She is of the view that the competitive sports can ruin the enjoyment that games are supposed to provide. These methods of playing the games like adults can prove to be lethal for physical and psychological health. The author quotes from an authentic source that “Kids under the age of fourteen are not by nature physical.” (Tutko) This means that the games for children need to focus more on their pleasure and enjoyment rather than on the competition. Competition only makes children bound to be winners.
Players receive a fine that is disproportionate to their exorbitant salaries. While I am certain organizing team sports started out as a way to foster young people to be more responsible members of society, I believe the goal has been lost somewhere along the way. This is unfortunate for parents and children who still seek the purity of what the original organizers intended. In my opinion professional sports has become more about entertainment and marketing than team building, good sportsmanship, and rational problem
People that say yes see it as motivation to the sport and also makes them feel like they're worth something to the team if they get something in the end. But others that believe if kids know they get something in the end, then they won't even try or “give their best effort”. Some even think the participation trophy is pointless and unnecessary which will make kids think all they have to do is show up to practice and not accomplish anything or put forth the effort toward the sport. If all you do is give kids participation trophies, they'll think everything will get handed to them in their lifetime without any effort. It's basically also a informal sanction just giving all these kids in sporting groups a reward that have no meaning at
But today's athletes need to understand that they are being viewed in a light that is much brighter than before” (Lowe, 1). Although most people may believe that neither athletes or celebrities should be role models for children, in the reality they are. Yes, it is unfair to expect an athlete, or any celebrity, to basically be a guide for telling people how to live their lives, but it is part of the price of being famous. It is important for today’s athletes to realize that they don’t have much privacy anymore, and that their fans, and the public in general, will find out about most decisions they make in their lives. “Kids pay attention when an athlete shows up for community service events just as much as they pay attention to an athlete's performance in a game the night before” (Lowe, 2).
Although injuries are very dangerous and sometimes fatal, they do not always outweigh the benefits you earn from playing sports. Contribution in a high school sport help keep the mentality and self-esteem of students high, simultaneously they also maintain the students’ health and fitness to be stable, and participating in a sports team during your high school career can benefit you in the present as well as in the long run. There is a reason to have sports in high school (well, 3 actually) and they should not be avoided just because critics believe so. To have high self-esteem means to
