How many times did I hear those words
when I was a youngster?
I have also heard
those words again and again while I have gone
through the rest of my aging process. What do
these words really mean?
Well, I guess this is
the accepted manner in which one person uses
to convince another that they should go along
with what has been established as an agreed
norm. But if we look at those words, and think
for a moment, what is really being said? Then
all the rules change.
Do you want to create a child age sport legend?
As a child whose bodily structures are in
the genesis of formation, care must be considered
as an absolute necessity and constant concern.
How many of us oldsters have aches and
pains that originated in those pre-adult years?
We have added physical insults to those muscular
systems that are at best delicate. We then
assume that all repairs will be accomplished
in accordance, along with bodily aging. Well,
now we know better.
That body can be slowly or rapidly and effectively
destroyed as the result of over stressing
areas of delicate containments.
My reason for this short dissertation has been

events. We as a society feel we must be the winner
of any event in which we participate. That
means we must exert ourselves to the point of
absolute failure, if we want to compete with
those who are willing to do so.
process we must be willing to perform, teaches
that we are only as good as the dangers, hardships
and deprivations we are able and willing
to bear and execute.
Sporting events for children might appear
as cute performances including our desires for
watching those little tots do their thing. It must
be realized however that we are assigning unnatural
and dangerously affective trauma producers
on that little body. The level of excellence
is the only limiting factor to how massive
the effects might be applied.
Stressing a body part especially at a young
age of an individual can cause permanent damage
to that body, which might not manifest itself
for many years. Then, we are the victim
of those physical insults created in previous
It might be added here, that this continuation
of physical insults is an absolute guarantee
of my concerns as written here. Welcome to
the Olympic games.
Have a nice day ...
