Football has the highest percentage of concussion rates at a high 47%. Concussions get more likely when the player is from 11-17 years of age, 1-5 sports players in high school will sustain a concussion in the season.

Very young athletes normally can recuperate from brain injuries in a couple weeks, but some take years to disappear. Without sports in schools there would be an enormous change in the amount of these terrible head injuries. Therefore, schools should ban sports because of how many injuries they cause.
Accordingly, violence prevention programs and mental health services for children have risen substantially, as well as the number of attending patients. As a result, the Bureau of Justice Statistics School Safety Report shows that victimization of minors in America has been steadily decreasing, albeit it has spiked recently. According to the report, the total victimization rate inside school declined 82 percent between 1992 and 2014, from 181 victimizations per 1000 students in 1992 to 33 victimizations per 1000 students in 2014. In 1992-1993, there were around 4.2 million victimizations but only 1.2 million in 2010-2011. Additionally, school homicides in 1992 and 1993 have reached a peak of 57 homicides, but in 2011 have decreased to 45.

• The ICD-10 classification system defines HKD as a persistent and severe impairment of psychological development, categorized by early onset, with a combination of overactive, controlling behaviour is poor with clear signs of inattention and lacking persistent task involvement, pervasiveness, over situations and persistence over time of these behavioural characteristics. • Classic problems stated by ICD-10 are displaying a lack of perseverance, completing an activity is a challenge and seem to move from one activity to another, disorganized and in early development activity that is excessive seem to constantly arise, generally continuous throughout school years and may continue through adulthood. • Diagnosis of Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, ICD-10 requires evidence of both inattention that is impaired and hyperactivity in more than one setting for example at home, school. Differences in perseverance and attention should have the diagnosis only if regarded extreme related to the child's IQ level and age, hyperactivity should be well-thought-out in the context of what is expected in certain scenarios and by comparing children of the same age and IQ
In the article "The Hunger in Our Heads", by Gretchen Reynolds, scientists from the University of Alabama experimented with thirty-eight college students to see if high blood flows could reduce the urge to overeat. The experiment found that half of the students who exercised for fifteen minutes consumed less calories than before. However, the other half of students who did not do any intensive exercise consumed more calories. The report does seem plausible. However, there were limitations such as the experiment only took place during lunch time and the exercise only involved running on treadmills.
Research has consistently found that child abuse and neglect (maltreatment) increases the risk of lower academic achievement and problematic school performance. These children have suffered significant emotional stress during critical periods of early brain development and personality formation, the support they require is reparative as well as
If the player does not take the allotted amount of time off, symptoms become prolonged or worse. These symptoms include headache, sensitivity to light, memory difficulty, and difficulty concentrating (Davidson, Atkins, and Longe). These symptoms can be shortened if the player does not return in the game before being cleared to play, however parents and coaches push their kids or players to get back into the game even after a massive hit. This is bad for their brain and can affect their work in school, and can inflict neurological damage for the
you killed three children, and your neighbor and yourself in crucial conditions. So, if school started later the chances of sleep deprived car accidents would decrease. And now we will be presenting to you real life occurrences from sleep deprived students. As of right now, 100,000 car accidents from sleep deprivation occur every year according to the SleepFoundation.org
The horrific stories that have been all over every news channel for the past few months about school shootings are hard to watch, but in reality less than two percent of homicides of youth between the ages of five and eighteen happen at school. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), youth violence is the intentional use of physical force or power against another person, group, or community, likely to cause physical or psychological harm. Although cases of youth violence have dropped since 1992, youth violence is still the third leading cause of death of youth ages fifteen to twenty-four, and is a major problem in the United States. Youth violence is a continuing problem in the United States, and this case proves why. On October 18, 2017, five teens set out to have some fun.
Kerr and Meghan Hoyer delves into the problem of students across America being absent from schools. This issue is explored in this article by showing the reader percentages of chronic absences in the United States. This issue was so bad in 2013-2014 that former president Barack Obama tried to help fix the issue by starting a program that works in 30 communities that tries to identify mentors that can work with students that are habitually absent from school. This program also as part of the effort donated “state” backpacks for students. This part of the program donated 30,000 bags to students that were part of the program.
Adolescents who lack a secure attachment relationship with their caregivers are at a greater risk for dysregulation of affect when experiencing trauma and the developing the symptoms of posttraumatic stress. Insecurely attached children and adolescents do not seek comfort in their caregivers so when exposed to trauma, their coping abilities are significantly hindered. When not able to seek protection and comfort in their caregivers, insecurely attached youth are more likely to be overwhelmed by stress; coping alone with limited resources may cause hyperarousal or disassociation (Perry, 2001). Likewise, an adolescent with a secure attachment can act as a layer of defense against the potential adverse effects of trauma (Finkelhor & Browne, 1984). A secure attachment also provides a safe a nurturing environment that enables the adolescent to process the traumatic events and become more equipped to return to a sense of safety and wellbeing- at least the same level experiences prior to the traumatic experience.
In a group, 38 percent reported that headaches, concentration problems and fatigue had made school more difficult. Forty-four percent said concussion symptoms affected their note take skills and homework completion. Nearly 9 to 10 teens who continue to show symptoms of brain injury also experience academic problems. When a young person gets hit on the head and suffers a concussion recommend being holed up in a dark room for days. This could mean five days in a dark, quiet room with no superhero movies, loud music, bright lights or smart
Every 15 seconds U.S. poison control centers are called about a poisoning incident. 40% of these calls involve children younger than 3 years and in 75% of these cases the poison was ingested (Gutierrez, J., Negrón, J., & García-Fragoso, L. (2011). The poisonings involve items found in most homes, such as prescription drugs, cosmetics, and cleaning supplies Most poisonings are preventable and happen in the home with the parent present. Fortunately, deaths from pediatric poisonings have decreased significantly over the decades due to the introduction of child-resistant packaging, product reformulations, and professional poison control systems. However, non-lethal, accidental medication overdoses have been increasing due to the rising availability
More and more people are now donning the “uncool” helmets than ever before. In the article, Should Colorado Ski Area’s Require Helmets On Kids, for the Denver Post, author Jason Blevins says, “Even without the threat of laws and fines, helmet use climbs roughly 5 percent every year. Half of all skiers and snowboarders in America wear helmets, up from 25 percent in 2002-03 (Blevins).” As far as children are concerned (the ones that are directly affected by the ski helmet law), a whopping 91 percent of kids 9 years and younger are wearing helmets, according to the NSAA’s fact sheet on skiing and snowboarding safety (Hawks).
