In conclusion, I think that kids should be allowed to participate in competitive tryouts for sports teams. There are so many mental health benefits that they can get from the selective nature of tryouts despite the fact that there is a possibility that kids could end up feeling dejected. Through competitive sports, young athletes learn the values of hard work, and the qualities of confidence and humility. All three of these are great skills to have in order to navigate life later, as a successful

Therefore having a parental figure while growing up is extremely important for a child or a creature's development.
