Are today’s parents overprotective?


Remember when you were a child? You were using your bike without a helmet, you didn’t have elbow and knee protections when rollerblading and you walked 5 miles to school everyday without having someone to drive you. Today’s parents go to much further length to keep their children safe. Both safe from contact with strangers and safe from psysical harm.

More and more parents won’t even let their kids use public transportation, if the child asks if it’s ok to take the train, some parents would say “don’t even think about it, there might be a bond on it, so stay far away from trains or busses.”. Oh come on, chancing of something like this happedning are about the same as a plane crashing in your home. You are hurting your child much more with all these restrictions and worries. The solution for some parents are to just your kid an Ipad or Playstation and they will spend much more time a t home, where you can keep an eye on them. We have seen way to many examples like this over the last few years. But do you honestly thing that sitting for hours in front an Ipad or Computer is more healthy for your kid, than being outdoor playing soccer and using their body? There is a reason we see more and more obese children in today’s world.

In our days, it was ok to go outside in an old Tshirt or sweater, but today’s children have many more restrictions on their clothes. Now it has to be eco clothing to protect the skin, or certain brands so that the parents can show their social status through their children. Bill from an online shop selling clothes and kostumer, have over the last few years noticed a large increase in parents buying specific clothes for their children, in order to make them send out certain signals. For instance, 5 years ago, a spiderman costume was something just used for Halloween, now it’s a plaything used to enhance the daily fun. Some even go as far as buying a Kostume suit for the kids to wear a school. In order worlds, parents have a much larger say in what type of clothing their younger children wear. Of course all of this changes once the kid becomes a teenager.

If you are worried about your child here’s a few tips to keep him or her a little more safe. These tips are mostly aimed at the younger ones.

•If your kid wants to go somewhere that isn’t near the house or someplace new, make sure there are others going with him or her, at least 2-3 others. People in a group are usually more safe.
• Even though I am against giving a telephone to a kid, it can be useful when they are going to visit someone alone. You use certain Apps to track the location of your kid with it. Otherwise just have them borrow a telefon when get they there, so that they can call home and tell you they arrived there safely.
• Always remind your child to stay in a group and not to wonder of alone.

I still think the worst are the parents, who won’t let their children play outside, climb trees or play football with the other kids. No it’s way better for your kids to sit a home playing Fifa 15 instead of actually being out there playing soccer with the others, and maybe get a bruise or two.


Safety in sports


As many of you know, sports can be dangerous. Most “minor” accidents happens actually during sports. You risk hurting your knee or foot when playing soccer, risk falling of the horse and break something when horse racing, the same goes for skiing. Sports are dangerous, but most of the times the injuries you get while taking part in sport is often minor. Quite different does it look, if we take a closer look at professionel sports. A lot of pro skaters, skiing experts, Football players etc. quite ofte risk getting a serious injury from their sport. And often one that forces them to quit what they are doing and focus on something else. But for most of us, it’s on a much smaller scale. I had recently a talk with James Hegn from who knows quite a lot about this problem. He used to be a pro bikecycle rider and have taken part in several of the big races around Europe. One day he got in a really bad crash and his leg got so damaged that it had to be removed. Since then he have been a huge name in paracycling. James Hegn is just one of many who have gotten badly injured by giving himself 110% to the sport he loves.

There are of course a few things you can do, to help minimize the changes of you getting hurt when taking part of a sport.

Get the proper training
Everything is hard in the beginning. For most people their first bike ride wasn’t down a step hill as that would very likely end with an injury. When you try a new sport, you will very likely need some training from expert before you begin. If we go back to the bike example, something that is very hot here in 2015 is mountainbiking. Most people start out with a friend or something with a low level of experience. Because of this we are seeing a lot of crashes when they try on the rough terrains. A lot of these crashes could have been prevented, if they had taken a few mountainbike classes first. It’s the same with sports such as paragliding or hanggliding, you don’t just read a book about and then go out and start by yourself. A lot of sporting accident wouldn’t happened if the person involved had some training.

Wear the right safety gear
Even with the best training accidents will still happen in sport, even professionel athlets gets hurt now and then. But a lot of the sports related injuries could have been prevented if the person hurt, had been wearing the proper safery gear. For instance there is a lot of people playing american football without any protection. Quite ofte this leads to a fractured collarbone or a concussion. Something that could easily have been avoided by wearing the right protection gear.

Start out small
Another common way of getting injured is by taking on to big a challange. Often you might think that you are completely ready for something but might not quite posess the skills needed. A place where we often see this is in motor sports. A lot of young people like to race fast in their car or on their motorbike, but don’t always have the experience for this. Suddenly the speeds gets to high for them to handle their car or bike and a mili second later we have a crash. A good way to avoid these types of problems, is by starting out small and step by step increasing the difficulty. Master a certain skill level before moving on to something harder as in this youtube video from kostumer

You might be confused of these ideas but the technology made this possible today. You might not believe this to happen but this can be possible through the use of internet surveillance.
