Stupid Kids (parents)
If you want your kids to live a short and stupid life, let them play football, soccer or box. Brain injury is extremely common in all of these sports.
You will doom your child to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE symptoms are similar to Alzheimer and Parkinson disease.
Most high school football programs require a child not to play for a month after being knocked out – the shake it off mentality. They should never be allowed to play again if knocked out – no exceptions. Sever brain damage has occurred, letting them play again will only worsen the damage.
Physical activity is important for children and adults. Find something that does not involve hitting of the head.
