This article shows that parents who want their children to be sucessful is harmful. I learned that when some parents are determined enough, they will force their children to practice everyday without rest. This is shown to be harmful because young athletes are not able to take so much pressure. Their parents are so stressed about their children doing good so some suffer from cardiac arrest.
This is a good article because it shows the negative effect parents have on their child athletes. I learned that parents now a days are just obsessed with winning. They pace the sidelines reacting to every kick or pass their child does. This puts tremendous amounts of pressure on their children. Parents should only care about their childs happiness rather then if they win or not.
This article is good because not only does it show the good parts of parental pressure for career choices but it also shows the bad sides. Ive learned that yes some children grow up to inherit the family farm or family business and are very successful, but some kids are forced into careers they don't want to do. These "choices" end up crashing and burning in the future when they realize they really do hate their career. By forcing your children into a career they don't want to do, they are basically setting their children up for failure.
In this article, I found that parents are becoming to competitive. Parents are getting worse about trying to prove that their kids are the best in everything. Experts show that this is creating a big problem in youth sports. Children are not wanting to play sports anymore and experts show that this is because of parents being to competitive. This article shows that the number of kids and teens playing sports has gone down 4 percent.
This website is good because not only does it share the good things about parental pressure but also the bad things. I found that a recent study in Arizona says that students who are pushed harder by their parents then other students are more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression in the future. It shows that parental pressure in this case does more harm then good.
