I actually do believe our kids should play football because this is what they want to do and what they are interested in.We let our kids play football for these reasons:1.They enjoy it 2. We enjoy it 3.This is giving them something fun to do.Now I know that they can get injured and hurt themselves out on the field,but we still have fun flag football.I know that concussions are what we are really worrying about but they aren't gonna happen that often when kids play,maybe High school and College is a different story along with the NFL.So,in my defense we should let our children play the game of football.

I agree that kids should be allowed to pursuit their own interests but there are many less dangerous sports that are similar to foot ball, like lacrosse or soccer. I am not saying that these sports are without risk but they are safer alternatives. Also even in touch football injuries are quite common place. In a study done by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission there where over 150,000 more football related emergency room visits from children between the ages of 12 and 17 than soccer related visits. And lastly Bleacher Report ranked football as the third most dangerous sport and soccer came 6th.
