Children in schools commonly are separated according to gender. For example, girls play volleyball and boys play football \soccer. But why can't girls and boys play soccer \football? Why can't boys and girls play volleyball? Of course I mean, on the team! In most schools boys are the ones that stick to playing and girls stick to staying on the sidelines cheering or playing another sport no one really cares about. If girls and boys alike get to play football or cheer leading it would be much fairer for the children. Some boys like cheer leading but can't do it as it is considered for "girls" and girls can't play football as it is considered for "boys". If children were allowed to be on a mixed sports team it would not only jut fix this problem but also make children feel more open about what they want to do. Therefore, boosting their confidence. Also, children will learn what true teamwork is, working together with someone you might not quite " get". So, to conclude, I think if girls and boys were allowed to be on the same sports teams it would truly not just make it fairer but also benefit them in many different ways.
