.Superet al (2016) involve the benefits of parents and the community toyouth education. Parents prevent their children from participating indifferent sporting activities because of a few advantages. Withoutproper guidance the article shows the youths misuse of the socialbenefit they gain from these sports and start participating inirresponsible behavior. Evidences on drug usage as a stimulant toboost one`s confidence levels and add energy while playing is alsobrought out clearly. Some sports activities also need high levels oftraining since failure to do that would result in service accidentsthat may affect the child’s life forever. Without proper focus aswell as establishment of the right routine will leave childrenwasting a lot of time in case they participate in sporting processesand therefore put the blame on the particular sport rather than thechild even though parents need to be helpful in such situations. As aparent whose primary focus has always been education the articlehelped learn learned all these advantages and disadvantages and lbelieve the limitation can dealt with through helping the youngindividuals out for the benefits that will befall them. After goingthrough the piece of work came to believe there is no good that comesfrom putting pressure on young people with sport and started workingon the problem since earlier it affected my personal as well asprofessional life. I also helped out some parents who were trapped inbelieving there is no good that can come from youth’s engagement insports.

Inconclusion, these believes are effects faced by parents who neednothing more than the best to their children but lack the overallidea of what good comes from sports just as explained in the book..Despite the existence of a few risk, the best way when dealing withthe issue involves proper discipline and guidance from parents andtherefore limiting any chances of the accidents occurring. Theadvantages, however, are massive since they see to it that childrenat a young age have good health standards, proper development processand merit in educational goals. As a parent, following theseparticular procedures will prove beneficial to your child. Thearticles help in explanation of different instances that youtheducation is highly valued
