People may be awe-inspiring and exquisite at sports, but what will that matter if they 're not academically excelling? Many middle school and high school students who play sports on their school teams, are often behind on their grades and falling back in classes. They may be strong and superior in the athletic area, however, this will not help students excel in their academics and leading to having an inadequate future ahead of them. Since, these students spend most of their time playing sports and practicing for their upcoming games, they tend to fall behind on their academic excellence. However, if students have to maintain satisfactory grades to participate in sports, these acts will lesson and create a better future for many student athletes.
This is an example of how a child could be negatively by the No Pass, No Play rule. The No Pass, No Play rule requires students to acquire excellent grades to play sports. Children in the same situation as Frances could be discouraged to try in school or even drop out of school. Sports may seem alarming at first glance, but digging deeper, it is present that sports aid children in their present and future endeavors. Not everyone lives the same lives.
At a young age, they have been taught to be the best and to excel at everything they do. With their classmates, that can cause a drift and make them standoffish. With constant competition, the child will surpass their classmates in everything and that becomes a priority. The classmates will envy rather than see the classmate as their equal and keep distance. The child will be focused on being the best at everything that they will not notice, or if they do they do not dwell on it too much.
I disagree with that because a proven fact is that guys mature differently and it might not affect the girls as much because they are not guys and might not have the ability to do what guys do. Coed sports may be beneficial or it could be a complete disaster, but so far it has been a great aspect and has really helped a lot of people. One other aspect of coed sports is that it helps with their confidence. When a child is playing sports you want them to have a high confidence level so that nobody can put them down. Putting people down one of the most important reasons we should allow coed sports.
People that say yes see it as motivation to the sport and also makes them feel like they're worth something to the team if they get something in the end. But others that believe if kids know they get something in the end, then they won't even try or “give their best effort”. Some even think the participation trophy is pointless and unnecessary which will make kids think all they have to do is show up to practice and not accomplish anything or put forth the effort toward the sport. If all you do is give kids participation trophies, they'll think everything will get handed to them in their lifetime without any effort. It's basically also a informal sanction just giving all these kids in sporting groups a reward that have no meaning at
It is technically the parents job to teach their kids what is right and wrong. It’s their job to keep them on the right path in life. Athletes are good for setting an example to the kids. Kids should look to their parents as role models, but the problem is that some children may have absent parents in their lives. This is why they look up to athletes, because they are all they have to look to (Steinberg).
“I will never be satisfied!” Many athletes may have heard this statement once or twice in their athletic careers from their coaches, but to hear it come from a parent is very unexpected. In the documentary Trophy Kids, follows the story of five families whose life is centered on their child’s success in sports. It goes behind the scenes of what each of the parent’s strategies are in order to push their child to the next level of becoming the next all-star athlete. Although, what they fail to realize is they lose sight of what is important. That is, it is important for their children to enjoy the sport and for the parents to not get caught up in the hype that the child will one day be a professional athlete.
It would allow kids to not only be in a team sport but, also learn to not hurt others because they would understand what it would feel like. One reason why children should be allowed to do cheer leading is that cheer leading is something most young people find and grow into and then it becomes their whole life career. Cheer leading is something that could be modified more often and probably more medical attention could be near at competitions. Jim Lord says, “ You can minimize the chance
Most parents believe that if they start their children off young, then their children will be more successful in whatever sport they are put into, but it can also cause their children to burn out and drop the sport by the time they are a teenager. Also, what parents sometimes might forget and do not understand is that, if their child does not like the sport they are playing, they are more likely to not try and find a way out of not playing in the game. In Statsky’s essay she explained how there was a child about seven-years-old who was playing a Peewee Football game and no longer wanted to play. The child told the coach that his “tummy hurts” in order to not play, but the coach did not accept his statement, so the little boy made himself vomit right onto the ground. This action from the little child shows how competitive sports have psychological dangers and can cause children to harm themselves in order to stay out of the game.
Anyone that drives you to want to succeed and for Wes that was his mother, Joy. She did everything should could for him so he wouldn’t go down the same path a lot of kids his age were going down. She wanted a better life for Wes. “Well, your grades obviously aren’t bad because you can’t pick this stuff up or because you are stupid, you are just not working hard enough” (75-76). Joy is influential to Wes because she knew that Wes had the ability to learn and to be intelligent, she just needed Wes to push himself to be intrigued in school like how he was in music or outside activities.
