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.
In most cases if a child is looking up to someone who lives his or her life unethically, in one way or the other, that child will draw something from that person. Also in Armstrong’s case, for him to come clean would cost the lives of the young ones who are very fond of him. But to fight and still lie as well does him no good, since even his the board of sports have identified his fault. Already his reputation is
Competition only makes children bound to be winners. It also discourages sportsman spirit. Instead of being a source of healthy growth, these competitive sports have started becoming the source of depression for children when they don’t fulfil the expectations of their parents. These sports should enhance the sportsman spirit in children and must be beneficial for their mental and physical health. Concentrating on winning or losing spoils the fun that games hold.
Imagine a world where everyone would get a trophy for participating in sports. The world would be a bad place to be in because every kid would expect trophy even if they didn 't work hard. More and more sport districts are starting to do this method, and this method is not right. This is not a good thing to do for kids because kids will have unhealthy competition, Participation trophies will not show that you worked hard to get it and Kids get stuck on always getting a trophy when one day the won 't and they will be heartbroken. Although some may argue that always winning and getting a prize is a good thing because it will boost a kids confidence.
The many times I had loss to him it just made my confidence just go down the drain a lot of the time. My first time Frankie and I had wrestled against each other it was during the first tournament during the season in the semi-finals. The match was a very close one it was a five point to three point match which he had won. Frankie had just dominated the match with his strength and not by his wrestling ability it just made me realize I had to work harder in wrestling practice and the weight
Parents don’t realize what they are doing to their children. They are taking away the childhood, which id the most important time of a person’s life. Most of these children are not having fun because they are being forced to the pageants. These children are more than likely to grow up with no self-esteem and hating their bodies since they think that they are not beautiful. They will end up seeing everything wrong with themselves.
The lure of athletic scholarship can be harmful due to kids training their whole life and then not receiving one can cause toxic and harmful behaviors in kids and adults. According to CNBC, when parents dream of being an athlete is pushed onto their children, this can create a serious problem in kids. They say that the parents constantly forcing children to be the best and become “D1 bound” and the child not succeeding in getting a sports scholarship, can cause depression, and even suicidal thoughts. Even with a sports scholarship, how is life in college with
The emotions on both sides of the battle run high at the start of the war; people are full of patriotism, adrenaline, and hope. If one side loses spirits are crushed, hope is lost, and people begin to look for new outlets because they feel their nation has let them down. This can lead to hostility or complete ignorance of the previous generation, since they are at fault for the current environment. However, on the other end of the deal with a victory, people will latch on to anything the leaders push through media. They are happy and living joyously.
Ni kan’s mother pushed her hard. She only wanted Ni kan to succeed but she was being selfish in away.

Ni kan was terrible in the way that at every practice she was faking knowing how to play and she knew the man could not hear and did not know any better. Ni kan took advantage of him.
An athlete has to learn their craft. So I think, sometimes, we don 't highlight the education that is in sports. In conclusion, sports should be banned from schools because of financial reasons, academic reasons, and student’s health. School’s don’t have any money to pay for sports, how will it pay for the school itself. Most kids only care about sports, they don’t care about their learning and grades.
Though many aspects of this chapter enhances the corruptions and detriments of society, this quote specifies on how this lifestyle poisons our morality. I can relate to this quote regarding my academic life. As Howard would say “you are all victims of the Scarsdale School systems,” many students, myself included, work tirelessly because of fear. We are scared of competitors and standards, and have truly lost sight of what we hope to achieve and why. I find myself stressed with the goals to beat other students, get into the best college possible, and please my parents.
