Sport lessons nowadays are considered as an obligation to the children in schools. A controversial discussion has already raised as it seems an increased number of parents to claim that this program should become optional. The main reason for that is their children who either having difficulties in general for doing sports or they do not feel convenient at all, being overweight.
I am not really on the same wavelength with the parents’ belief as my point of view is entirely different. I will try briefly to demolish the parents’ views, showing them that the following factors are predicated essential for their children’s upbringing and in any case only positive feelings are given out. Consequently having read the below you may arrive to the conclusion that sports lessons should remain compulsory for our children.
Factors such as :
– their physical education,
– the feeling of wellness,
– the paramount importance of their children health at a later stage,
– the promotion of the team spirit,
– the self-confidence, self-respect and self-discipline, etc.
– the meaning of the healthy exercise
are considered as an imperative need to be built into our childrens’ character and properly be educated, as they grow up during their affiliation into our society.
Sport lessons should be compulsory in our schools. I think that it is not appropriate the children to decide whether to attend these lessons or not. Certainly our children need to be driven to the right decisions and in particular during their first steps. It is obvious that during this period they start feeling stressed, under enormous pressure, tamper with the unknown. Once they start going to school their parents’ presence is needful so as to assist and encourage them as needed. Children may not be responsible for their acts during their first steps, besides to err is human, but we as parents are and certainly we should keep them always advised, remind them their accountabilities.
When you are a child, who takes care of you? Now, the cost of living is so high that many people under age twenty-five are moving back in with their parents. Young people are getting married later now than they used to. The average age for a woman to get married is about twenty-four, and for a man twenty-six. Newly married couples often postpone having children while they are establishing careers. ...
Once we deal with the case of an overweight child, we will appreciate that the lack of self-confidence and low self-image are the first factors appeared to it. If sports lessons cease to be bind and the children may decide whether to skip the lesson or not, it is obvious that this child will not opt to attend sport lessons and factors such as the aforesaid will remain decreased. Do you believe that this child will ever have the opportunity to improve and strength his character during the forthcoming years? The answer is simple no. Perhaps pessimism would be one of his character’s drawbacks.
Another child who have difficulties of doing sports will never intend to attend sports lessons. There are indeed several ways to assist this child so as to improve and fight eventually down her problem. But in case she decides to steer away from the lessons how would be possible to do so? There would be no escape for this child.
In conclusion, I always believe in keeping didactically the sport lessons as a compulsory method for every child. We have been taught by various historical events that once the compulsory methodologies are involved, we are obliged to follow the lines, to keep the rules and that in itself helping us a lot to improve our skills regardless of age, regardless of subject, regardless of route.
