According to Amanda Ripley, author of “Should Schools Get Rid of Sports”. Sports make kids look forward to going to school because you get to play and bond with your team mates after school.

And if sports make kids look forward for school kids will want to go so they will get better grades through sports.
As you see children are restless and need good health. Some people think that education is the strong suit of our society, but if youth are our future let them grow up in a flowing community and make their community fun. They say the nation is free, so why do adults boss our youth through freedom and isolation. Don’t be a mean school that sets children on isolation because of their attempts at talking for fun, even though there are times for that, without recess talking will grow worse. Make them stop, bring back the fun at school, as I say, Make Schools Great Again with
Instead of running sprints, lifting weights, and preparing themselves for a long season they could be walking the streets, drinking, doing drugs, stealing, or just simply wasting their life away. To be eligible to play a sport a teenager must attend class and make good grades. If they do not do this the school will not allow them to play. Sports encourage students to receive a proper education so they can play the sport they love. Also, many teenage athletes come from a rough home life.
However, as children develop, parents give careful consideration to the music and features that catch their children’s interests and captures their attention. Exposing children to different genres of music expands their knowledge and helps them begin to formulate what types of music they begin to relate to. Music gives children a chance to get away from what’s going on in their young lives. It is completely normal for teenagers to feel the need to use music as a distraction to block out their surroundings and allow them to focus on what inspires them. There is, however, a concern with the negative and damaging topics of hip hop and rap.
An example of this would be a parent who places their children in a wide array of extracurricular activities and/or actively speaks to educators about the accommodations their child needs to effectively learn. Natural growth is a parenting style where the child is left to carve their own path in a sense, but is left with a more reserved attitude. Some examples of this might be that they are taught to trust authority and not question it or they are more likely to make their own fun like play with the kids around the neighborhood rather than be in organized activities set up by their parents. What Lareau found through her study is that those families who were in the middle class displayed a concerted cultivation parenting style while those in the working class displayed a natural growth parenting style. While reading Unequal Childhoods I kept finding
As well as with “creative violence”, this term is correlated to the idea of helping children learn how to deal with rage and even be able to control it whenever life becomes challenging. Even though parents may not see the appeal of letting their children be exposed to violent content, they should consider the positives it can provide for their children. Overall, Jones used logos, ethos, and pathos effectively to persuade the audience that parents need to start protecting their children from being selfish or over powered people, but instead help them with exploring violence in a healthy manner to help them achieve a better persona. The intended audience for Jones’ article would be parents and teachers. Whoever the reader may be, they can notice that the publisher, Mother Jones, allows articles to be written by staff or other contributors on various topics such as
In Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod provides a brief summary of how teens are affected by their peers ridiculing and judgement. *insert supporting (integrated) quote from the article* From this, it is clear to see that it isn’t harmless what is being done in these situations. Kids are going home from school feeling broken, embarrassed, and outcast by those who were once their friends. Anyone can tell stories about how high school is all a popularity contest of different cliques, but no one is ever really willing to talk about how extreme this contest really is. There have been several news articles chronicling the bullying of kids who are designated as ‘too intelligent’ and are thus being bullied because of it.
I was never the perfect student, nor was I always perfectly behaved. I understand that there are more people like this, that is why I strive to help others in achieving their own personal goals. Spending time at school tutoring sessions, and the school band program has allowed me to help people in the way that I strive to. I am able to help people become better at a school subject that they may be struggling with, or even teach someone how to play certain type of percussion instrument that they may not have known how to play. I want to be able to look back on those experiences and know that I may have inspired someone to help others in the same way that I did for them.
In Rosin’s article, she makes a strong argument that kids need independence by making her audience, genre, and purpose known from start to finish. “The Overprotected Kid” seems to be written to an audience of new parents or parents dealing with teenagers. However, both looking for instructions on how to properly raise their children. At the start of the article, Rosin describes the setting of young kids playing at “The Land” and how this particular playground was made not just for entertainment, but for the overall development of a child. By lessing parental supervisors and increasing the freedom to learn in an environment, the kids can shape and mold it to be whatever they need while allowing the children to assimilate risks
