The writer further explains that the idea of winning sometimes causes severe injuries that may prevail for a lifetime. In these games, a child may crash into one another accidently that creates a fear of getting hurt. Just to protect themselves some children back out of many games and are left behind when it comes to the development of their bodies. The rest of the children who are part of these games are in a constant pressure from their parents and coaches that cause the stress and anxiety. Furthermore, the writer states that this “sport becomes job like”.
Kids like to play outside and play competitive sports, such as football, soccer, basketball and other sports, but what parents and children don’t know, are the consequences of trying to strive and win in competitive sports. Even though sports are supposed to be fun and healthy, children are stressed out from playing it. Playing sports are actually dangerous for children. Which is why children should not play competitive sports. To begin why children should not play competitive sports is because they can get injured, which may impact their entire life.
School sports have begun to be too competitive which has caused kids to play more and to play more aggressive. Some may say only a couple of sports are dangerous, like football or basketball, but sports like running and tennis don’t put the athlete at a huge risk for injury. However, in any sport there’s danger of being injured. Any kid who plays any sport often has a big risk for an injury. Over the past years, kids have began to play sports more often and for a longer amount of time, which has caused the amount of overuse injuries to sky rocket.
Emotional abuse,”is a verbal attack on the player's self-esteem by a coach, parents, or someone they trust and respect”(Lench). The attack often occurs as a punishment or a form of discipline, and is in no way meant to cause actual harm to the athlete. This come in many form such as name-calling, threatening, or criticizing. An example, Physical abuse is when, “intensity of training or competition exceeds the capacity of the child’s immature and growing body”(Child Abuse in a Sport Setting). Physical abuse occurs in every athlete's body but primarily in young athletes bodies because their body is still growing and developing.
These sports programs are causing mental and physical damage for these developing kids and the intensity of parents and coached have made it even more overwhelming. Youth Sports are getting so intense they are putting the lives of children in trouble. As the intensity in youth sports increases, children begin to ignore the constant pains in their bodies to seem “tough” which leads to problems in their future. Among all injuries, the most
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.
The interns and residents make huge mistakes that normally would cause them to get kicked out of the program. For example, Izzy, an intern at the time, falls in love with a patient by the name of Danny. Danny’s condition worsens and Izzy cuts his wire in order for him to move up on the transplant list. Of course, she gets off lightly and we know that this is very unlikely. In real life, a resident would be kicked out of the program, sued, and unable to practice medicine again, and possibly serve jail time (Kirzner, 2014).
The difference between adult and child athletes is that when adults participate in sports, they know that playing in that sport is going to come with serious injuries and consequences. Whereas children do not know what they are signing up for when they decide to participate in a sport. Most times kids do not think about the serious injuries that they could get while playing they just join because a parent wanted them to participate in something or because they see that some of their friends are in it and they want to be a part of that sport too. No matter how old an athlete is, the biggest topic that has been talked about for years now is athletes getting concussions during sports. There have been numerous articles revolving around this topic and was even a movie called “Concussion” starring Will Smith who played as a guy who is concern about athletes getting concussions in football and even examines the brain when it has endured a concussion.
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
Some may say that too much pressure for youths can leave a negative impact on them. On the other hand, by learning how to cope with the tension and criticism from supportive coaches and teammates, kids can persevere through these problems and grow stronger mentally. In addition, kids learn problem-solving skills that may help them surpass obstacles in their later lives (Website). Children tend to depend on the knowledge of others to figure out problems for them. When I tried wrestling for the first time, competing on the mat all by myself was very anxious and daunting.
The kids were running around screaming but the mother did not do anything to settle them besides yelling at them. She seemed very overwhelmed and not able to cope well with all the stress caused by Cedric’s actions. The mother had a defeated demeanor during the interview, as, if she has given up on Cedric. My next intervention move is to get Cedric into an environment that will allow him to focus in an individual counseling section. I will also want to have a family counseling session to address the stress that each family member is facing.
Many parents of the victims often have a hard time accepting the fact that their child is different and react in an unfavorable way. For example, in the book “Violence Against Queer People,” by Doug Meyer, who explains how most teens who come out to their parents are thrown out of the house. Being thrown out of their own home drives them to substituting school pastimes. “Drugs and prostitution replace school as a way of life. At the most critical time of their lives, their parents have denied them the support they need to become productive adults.” When Meyer says this he expresses how these young denied teens are abandoned when they are at the most critical part of their life; when they seek guidance.
Did your opinion change? At recess, I am one of the good doctors, and a couple seventh graders are the doctors who made mistakes. The result was seventh and eighth grade can no longer mix in sports. The main issue that I hate at our school, is that whenever there is a problem with only a few people, everyone loses their privileges. During a week of soccer games last year, a few sixth graders (now seventh graders) were mad that some of the now-eighth graders were playing soccer with them, their solution was to be as aggressive as possible so that we would just leave.
His mother actually had a degree in child psychology so she was frustrated that everything she learned and tried would not work with Michael. His parents had to deal with manipulation from their child who hadn’t even turned ten yet. At one point he was being punished for trying to hit his brother with a chair and while he was being carried away he yelled that he had a greater bond with his father than with his mother to try to tear his parents apart. They sent him to several psychologists before finding Dan Waschbusch, who had studied callous-unemotional children for 10 years, and he suggested that their son may be a psychopath (Kahn, 2012). Callous - unemotional traits are distinguishing elements of psychopathy.
"The man who loses his job or cannot support his family as he thinks he should feels that he has failed as a man and as a husband" (Cooney 54). When parents deal with tough financial situations, it can cause stress and anger within them. Some parents feel the need to take that stress and anger out on their children because they may feel their children are the reason they are in that financial situation, so the only way to get rid of that anger and frustration is to abuse that child. The effects of child neglect and abuse include: losing their parents, being moved into a foster care or a different facility, they may never feel the love of a parent, and many other effects come with neglecting and abusing a child. Both on the child and the parents.
