But when you are out trying to make sure that kids can't be hurt even when they are playing sports, or start limiting or banning sports because it's not safe... That's retarded.
Kids will get hurt while playing... That's just a fact of life (and for some ******s that DOES NOT MEAN that I want kids hurt), but with participation trophies and not keeping score and making sure kids don't have to "feel bad" you are doing them a disservice.
How are these kids going to deal with the realities of not getting the job they want, getting rejected by the guy or girl they'd want to date, or the reality that they are not really as special as they were told through their youth???
Short answer is that this next generation are going to be thoroughly unprepared for the real world just because parents are becoming overbearingly overprotective... And it's also overly litigious nonsense where everything is someone's fault and Should be sued over.
We played soccer, hockey and football, and ya, there were numerous concussions, broken bones, cuts and scrapes, and what do you know, everybody was healed... Win or lose we were taught sportsmanship and how to handle these things honorably.
This next generation is being robbed of this type of first hand learning, and our society is going to suffer for it...
And even though with this story it's a temporary measure, the trend throughout the country is towards this type of coddling by limiting sports banning anything that even has the potential of danger.
