One example is if you are not as good as the other kids, the better kids might make fun of you and then you feel like you are nothing and when that happens you feel as worthless like a bump on a log. Another example is when you mess up you have that kid that bullies just for the heck of it and then you're self esteem goes lower because you feel embarrassed in front of the whole team. The last example according to Why I don't Want My Kid To Play competitive sports is you might not have fun because kids are being mean to you and then everything goes downhill from
Stereotypes at DHS exist and they pertain to many things such as where you hang out, are you an athlete etc. and they have an impact on other kids performance by stereotyping them by lowering their self-esteem which makes them less confident, making them less secure which may lead to not coming to school, and peer pressure which may lead to doing negative things they don’t want to do. These 3 things may cause kids to go down the wrong path just because they don’t want to be called a certain thing or looked down upon. This happens at DHS and it causes kid to be more socially insecure because they think they’re a loser because a stereotype told them that because they do a certain thing or they’re pressured to do something such as drugs or they’re a chicken or other words. Stereotypes makes kids more insecure about their self-image because i’ve observed that kids that have been stereotyped or bullied because they closely relate or they’re the same thing is that they try to change who they are or try to fit in so they aren’t stereotyped and aren’t seen “inferior” to other people.
It was a blast taking him down. The excitement of the crowd behind me gave me a new high that I never wanted to leave. But eventually I had to take my seat and let the tournament resume. After my match, watching the matches in-between were great fun. I got to see how my friends played at their best against people they didn’t know.
Their motives to cheat vary from thrill to peer pressure or plain laziness. Students may be peer pressured to find an easier route through their education: while others feel they need to cheat to be successful. School is a major event in a person’s life, but what goes on at home can adversely affect how they achieve their education. Students that feel depressed or lonely will use cheating as a way to fill their emotional holes, this is known as the “cheaters high” (Source 3). Students gain a thrill or a surge of pleasure from getting away with an immoral deed.
The second reason is competition. Competition helps you become more confident and teaches you a lot about life and competition. “Playing competitive sports makes you confident which improves your self esteem” says Sarah David a blogger from LIVESTRONG.COM. Playing competitive sports makes you confident because you learn the feeling of loosing and helps you know what you're expecting in a competition. Competitive sports teach a lot of thing like when you lose you start to reflect on what you did wrong and think of ways to to do better next time.
Michael Jordan once said,” Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” Little did I know how hard work and teamwork can make such a difference. Without working together we accomplished nothing, but came out with a hard-earned victory in the end. In the third grade I played baseball for the Downers Grove Park District, playing with all my friends was extremely fun, unfortunately we were the last place team with a record of 2 wins and 14 losses. Our record didn’t stop us from going out on the field every game and trying out best. Teamwork makes the dream work and that’s how we went from the worst team to the champions.
A trophy is always secured in their mind. Trophies today have a whole new meaning. They do not symbolize a victory or achievement; they are merely reminders of childhood. Betty Berdan, a junior in high school says, "When awards are handed out like candy to every child who participates, they diminish in value. If every soccer player receives a trophy for just merely showing up to practice and playing in games, the truly exceptional players are slighted."
Life without harmony is brutal. Just as life without someone to talk to is brutal. People often have to change themselves to be a part of the exclusive group. The popular kids. When you aren’t a popular kid, you are shunned by the rest of the world.
Not necessary for myself, but I wanted to prove to everyone in our community, and the other teams, that our team had improved and we were capable of winning and advancing to the next round of sectionals for the first time in my high school career. We played Union County in the first round. We were fully capable of winning, but it was in our hands to make it happen. Before the game, I laid on the floor stretching and trying to calm my nerves. I could smell a mix of buttery popcorn and sweat that made me feel nauseous.
Summary The passage ‘Children need to play, not compete’ is a profound analysis of a variety of negative impacts that the competitive sports have on the life of children. Jessica Statsky is of the view that competitive sports have a far more negative effects on children than the benefits of it. The ‘adult standards’ that are unfit for the children, need to be eradicated from children sports as they are inappropriate for their better physical growth. These include all kinds of sports that are contact as well as non-contact. These not only influence their physical health but also deteriorate their psychological health.
