People think children should play sports. Sports are fun, & children stay healthy while playing with others. However, playing sports can have negative effects on children. It may produce feelings of poor self-esteem or aggressive behavior in some children. According khổng lồ research on kids and sports, 40 million kids play sports in the US. Of these, 18 million say they have been yelled at or called names while playing sports. This leaves many children with a bad impression of sports. They think sports are just too aggressive.

"This has multiple wins. Students get lớn apply their learning in the classroom và share their interests with children in local schools or community organizations, while schools gain skilled students with a passion for a subject that enthuses their pupils."
