Summary “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” by Jessica Statsky is a thoughtful insight on the competitive sports for children. She is of the view that the competitive sports can ruin the enjoyment that games are supposed to provide. These methods of playing the games like adults can prove to be lethal for physical and psychological health. The author quotes from an authentic source that “Kids under the age of fourteen are not by nature physical.” (Tutko) This means that the games for children need to focus more on their pleasure and enjoyment rather than on the competition. Competition only makes children bound to be winners.
First I will go on to state each opponents strongest argument and then I will go on to discuss who I feel won the debate putting my personal basis aside. Corissa’s strongest argument was that exposure to violence can cause aggression in children. Children will grow up to imitate what they see and think that violence is the norm. She justified her argument by stating the statistics of children who watch media violence compared to those who do not and stated that their long-term aspirations included being criminal or “thugs” instead of doctors a more socially expected profession. This went against Kara’s argument that there is no link between violence and children unless we were to look at other variables including mental illness or children who are exposed to
Esperanza being hurt by the boy isn’t all Sally’s fault because the boy hurt Esperanza but Sally set up the situation. Girls can be mean on their own and so can boys, but when you put them together you can have an even worse situation on your hands. If Esperanza hadn’t rushed to grow up she wouldn’t have been hanging out with Sally and most likely would have avoided this whole situation.When the author wrote about this it really showed her lesson of don’t grow up too fast, you can only be a child once because it shows how hard it is to be an adult but it uses kids to show it. Since the author did this it was a very powerful statement, if she hadn’t used kids you would have just thought that was a thing adults do, but since she used kids it showed what happens when you grow up
From there, the kids learn how to kill and then all of the violence starts to happen to those around them. Others argue that child soldiers are dangerous and without doubt should not be given amnesty, however, child soldiers should be given amnesty because they are forced to join through false promises and poverty, get brainwashed with drugs and alcohol, and are usually too young to understand what they are being involved in. One reason why they should be given amnesty is because they are brainwashed with drugs and alcohol causing them to commit atrocities. The use of drugs and alcohol on child soldiers are pretty common because they have the ability to brainwash
Thus, I totally agree that these standards are to be removed from children sports. It should be more about fun. I think that the author has seen this matter quite practically as she says that the competition can be a part of the adult life and must be taught to the children but sports should not be the medium to do it. The competition among children make it stressful for them and it’s almost impossible to enjoy the sports. Competitive sport can cause the children to be under constant pressure and this can result in mentally upsetting them.
Summary In “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” Jessica Statsky tries to demonstrate the negative effect of organized sports on the physical and psychological health of growing child. She claims that the games are not festive but they end up in the wrong development of a child’s brain. The coaches and parents have high hopes for their children that result in the pressure building. This changes the purpose of sports from teaching tolerance, teamwork and sportsmanship to merely winning by all means. The writer further explains that the idea of winning sometimes causes severe injuries that may prevail for a lifetime.
Despite the evidence against Atticus being a good parent, the evidence backing up the claim that Atticus is a good parent significantly outweighs the counterclaim. The main reasons why readers may think Atticus is a bad parent is because he does not know where is children are at most of the time, and he lets them loose multiple times, which once almost resulted in possible injury or death. However, letting the children explore on their own gets them the experience they need in real life. When Jem and Scout were at the court case. Jem learned a great deal about Maycomb and its citizens.
The main factors of motivating humans is the surrounding environment, and surrounding people such as parents and teachers, their job is to take out everything that destroys motivation such as child criticism. In kurdistan child criticism right now is much better than it used to be back in my time, I was even criticised by the teachers for being honest to them. Still today our children are experiencing such things , even though it is illegal to hurt children physically, or emotionally. Instead of hurting them why not give them a reason to believe in themselves ? Another flaw in motivation is inserting the wrong goal in their minds instead of letting them choose their own goals , this is one of the biggest mistakes that parents make here, this has caused the society to accept only doctors , pharmacists , and engineers
These juvenile offenders are treated like adults because they made adult decisions when instead they should be given attention and support to turn them into better people. A public defender says in a short documentary that, “We are seeing far too many young offenders entering the adult system who should be dealt with in the juvenile system”, and that a way some juvenile offenders are treated far worse than they deserve. Just because juveniles made bad decisions in their youth does not mean that they should be given a life sentence or put on death row, because they were just children who made some terrible mistakes. The people that think juveniles deserve the worst punishment they can get are probably don't understand that juveniles don’t really know what they are doing and it most likely isn’t always their own
Kids who bully don 't own up to their actions and can bring people 's self-esteem down when you include the fact that they sometimes go a long time without getting caught. When people get together, there are certain things that increase the likelihood of violence, group size being one and physical appearance being the other. Some bullies feel that they can be guarded against consequences for violent behaviors that occur when they are part of a mob because they can hide behind the common line that “everyone was doing it, so I did it to” instead of owning up to the
Have you ever had an opinion on if child soldiers should have consequences on their actions or have u ever thought that it is not all their fault? Many people say the kids should be prosecuted because they know what they were doing while others think differently. I believe that it is not the kids fault, the first reason i think this is because when kids are kids they can’t tell grown ups what they want to do. The second reason i think that they should not be prosecuted is because while they are being recruited they get drugged. The last reason i think that kids should be set off free is because when the children are fighting they can be in serious danger.
These attributes can be something that a person has no control over, such as their race or socio-economic background. Criminalization is not often based on laws, but instead revolves around customs that others have been understood as good or bad, which can later lead to laws. This idea consists of the reinterpretation of everyday actions or ideas and vilifying them (Merry 14 -15). In the cases of children there exists the idea that a child who commits a violent and heinous crime will only become more violent and will continue to commit crimes. Therefore, once a despicable act has been committed by a child he or she becomes labeled as a violent criminal.
I believe that spanking can be a good tool as long as it is used correctly and only if all else has failed. The correct way to administer a spanking is when it is ' '... ' 'two open-handed swats, not out of control due to anger ' ' as a backup for children between the ages of 2 and 6” (Goode). If you leave marks or bruises on the child, is becomes abuse, not only from my believes, but also from the California law. If you do anything other than softly hit their bottom, it could leave visible marks, which is illegal. You can not spank while you are angry or else you can hurt them.
Yes if a kid just sits there they will not pass, but even if the kid shows effort or improvement they will probably pass the class, and just like sports most kids will try during the game, which will earn them trophy. Other problem with this side of the debate is it believes participation trophies will not push the young athletes to become better, but the truth is the contrary of that belief, the truth is the trophies will cause kids to become better. As children see everyone is receiving the same treatment, they will desire to push kids to push further in the game, so they will be able to receive more awards for their efforts. Another flaw in the idea of not handing out participation trophies is kids will feel that they are not good at the sport causing them to quit,
