Debate Rounds (1)
Also "Kids that are younger than 8 years old are less coordinated and have slower reaction times than adults because they are still growing and developing" Acording to kidshealth.org that"s why you shouldnt let your kids play when they are younger then 5 becaue they have a lot of risks.
Now, by the resolution's specific mention of the age 5, I can argue as con that the age limit should be higher than 5. I find that the age limit should be the age of 12. According to an NIH study that was referenced by my opponent, children under the age of 12 who engage in tackle football are more likely to have memory and thinking problems as adults. To impose an age limit of 5 would destroy the values my opponent pretends to support.
I ask my judges to adhere to the rules and judge only using information provided in the debate and not project their own opinions into their decision.
