In conclusion, after looking over and reading through a few of the pros and cons of the topic of playing sports, you will notice that there are more negatives than positives to the whole position. Yes, your child playing sports can be good on their social skills and self-esteem, but also deadly to the body. It can higher their GPA, and lower it at the same time. More than that it also can cost you buckets of money. Having your children involved in these kinds of activities is a risk.
My Dad had a story when he was playing football and that someone grabbed him and chuck him to the ground. The wind was taken out of him all because the kid had anger issues. Kids lose their temper in the game and out. CNN says that “there is no one more of a role model than a parent.” Because if they push you to win or lose the pressure that is put on you can lead to anger issues. Because if they teach you to be a role model then you’ll be one for you kids or
Even though it makes sense, it is not something we know for sure, accidents happen all the time and there is no way to know that the players will be a 100% safe. For this reason, high schoolers shouldn 't risk themselves so much, an accident could happen at any time and they could have injuries that could affect the rest of their lives. In the article, "How Dangerous Is High School Football?" by Nationwide Children 's Hospital, they agreed that high school players have more risks by quoting, "High school players have greater proportions of the more severe
According to Baldwin Ellis, “sports has many positive benefits.” Parents take a big risk pushing their kids to play a sport can backfire and cause disappointment, unhealthy relationship, and emotional problems. Parents are pushing adolescent to participate in a sport can lead he/she to losing interest in athletic. A few parents grew up playing competitive games that had dreams of playing professionally, however in reality it just a
Sports are not only fun, they give people the confidence to do something that they enjoy doing. Learning in school and playing sports at the same time isn’t that hard if you’re very well focused. Schools would not be any fun if there were not any sports, I mean come on, what’s the point of high school if you don’t get anything good out of it besides a diploma? Many kids that go to school find a purpose of what they love doing, some like the academics and some simply just love playing sports. Too many, it is easier getting a scholarship in sports then it is for academics, that’s why many go to college, not only for the class work but for the sports as well.
This story relates to Oedipus because John is Oedipus. He is having a relationship that isn 't acceptable in society, his flaw is his ego when it comes to basketball and girls, he had a change in fortune. He was the star basketball player and then got kicked off the team. He eventually leaves town just like Oedipus. Nathan is like Laius because he got expelled because he got in a fight with John for showing him up.
In seventh grade I broke my foot in the very beginning of the basketball season, I was so devastated and didn’t even want to go to practice to support my team. But through one of my downfalls, my parents, making me go to practice everyday, influenced me to become a better person and taught me to not give up when things get hard. The air was crisp, the leaves were
When I was in my first year of medical school, I had to watch my cousin and best friend suffering because of Kidney Failure. It was a summer vacation and I was visiting my cousin who turned 19 years, and was living in a rural village far away from the capital Khartoum. When I saw her, I was terrified and I insisted that we take her to a hospital, so did my uncle who was a pharmacist. We borrowed neighbors’ truck, because there was no ambulance to call. After 2 hours of driving, we arrived to the hospital, the doctors told us that she has suffered from severe dehydration and as a results her kidney failed and she might need to be on a dialysis machine.
I had a BMI of 37 going into my freshman year of college and my physician warned me numerous times to change my lifestyle. I dismissed their warnings with youthful ignorance. However, there I was laboring away on that treadmill, with only one response to those thoughts begging me to quit, “This pain is nothing compared to how you felt that day.” My dad was never out of shape, but he also wasn’t as healthy as his physician asked him to be. That fact did nothing to stop the heart attack he suffered months before my freshman year at Iowa. There laid my dad, unconscious with tubes protruding
It could be life taking. When an athlete gets injured when they don’t takeoff time from competitive sports then it will make the injury not be able to heel. A 10 year old kid got a concussion because of playing footbal. Adam Buckley States how his son had a concussion from just practice. “Ten days earlier, he’d taken a helmet-to-helmet hit during practice and he sustained a concussion .” That shows how it is dangerous even.
Sports a big part of American kids lives today. Too big actually. So many kids are involved in sports that are hurting their lives more than helping them! Every year sports take up money that schools should be spending on teachers. Sports cause children to focus more on sports than school!
Another reason for my argument kids shouldn 't start competitive sports at a young age is because of the dangers of some sports that young kids are involved in. Several NFL players have stated that the game is so risky they wouldn 't let their own kids play. (Scope Magazine, By Jennifer Shotz.) As a matter of fact Michael Keck, a college football player, never played professional football but was diagnosed with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. The Alzheimer 's like disease.
Harlan was a center on the Lakers 12-and under basketball team. After 1 game, when Harlan missed 2 free throws that almost cost his team the game against the Bulls, their rivals, he felt that he was a bad center. His next game he let the other center beat up all over him in the paint and they again almost lost because of Harlan, but won again because of Miles and Jackie, the 2 guards. After those games Harlan wanted to quit, but Miles and Jackie didn 't let him. Miles and Jackie went to the park with Harlan to help him improve his game.
This notion is supported by Dr. Daniel Gould, who believes that “Children who participate in sports have increased educational aspirations, closer ties to school and increased occupational aspirations in youth” (1). People against the funding of high school sports think that parents and society are placing more emphasis than ever before and, “[P]ressures athletic personnel to deviate on winning from the athlete- centered educational and personal development mission” (Gould 1). However, athletes strive to do better in class. Michael Lorenc, a high school basketball coach believes that “those who seem to have an overwhelming schedule where they’re playing maybe multiple sports, and high academic schedules, they tend to do better than those who don’t do anything extracurricularly” (Gray). Balancing sports and school makes athletes put more effort into keeping up grades while playing the sport they love.
Some experts may believe that the risk of serious injury while participating in sports isn’t worth the benefits that come with the activity. But, if the school’s athletic budget was to be raised above the current ceiling, better quality equipment and better trained coaches could both be afforded. With changes in the degree of the safety practiced during our athletics, the likelihood of a player acquiring a serious injury, such as a concussion, would decrease exceptionally. Another issue that is raised by opposers of athletics is the fact that so few kids receive any kind of scholarship for their hard work in the activity that they participate in. But, with this extremely high standard of acceptance, less than 5% for some kinds of sports, kids
