Should Kids be allowed to do extreme sports?
Debate Rounds (3)
http://www.familyeducation.com... , it states that most kids who play only hurt themselves from ignorant behavior, such as not wearing proper gear. As most children of extreme ages get hurt, it is more seldom that you would find a head injury, than a broken hand, or foot, ect. Also, adding all of the injuries together more people get hurt in basketball and football than in extreme sports, because more precaution is taken for more extreme sports.
"Although they may not sue, their families could, if they die." Unbelievably, they couldn't. When you sign that waiver saying that the organization or recreation of sports that they have accepted that if their child gets hurt, or even dies, they cannot sue. If they took it to court, the case would be dropped as soon as the signed waiver was shown.
" Although I see your point, I'm not talking about football and basketball as extreme sports." I never recalled stating that it was. I stated that more children get hurt in basketball and football as opposed to more extreme sports.
"Also, the kids can get long lasting conditions from over exercising such as Tachycardia, which is a condition of the heart, where the heart gets overworked. " Tachycardia is actually a condition where the heart is abnormally when you are at rest. http://www.mayoclinic.org... states this.
It would be really hard, eliminating sports, no matter the severity.
It was very nice debating with you. Hope to debate against you again.
