Steven Dooley EN140 February 26, 2008 Title Being involved in youth sports is something almost every child will go through. One reason to get your child involved in youth sports is to help them learn the skills of that sport so they might be able to succeed in it during high school and possible college. Some other reasons are to keep them in shape, meet new people, but the main reason is to have fun. Many parents and spectators, however, do not see it that way. They see it as a competition, and their child or team has to win. If their team is not winning some parents feel the need to yell or worst case scenario, get violent and harm another person. Many schools and organizations have developed ways to possibly reduce these problems. In today’s society winning is pretty much the only way to go. Even if the children are playing the game to have fun, their parents sometimes do not see it as all fun and games. There have been many incidents where spectators have become out of control at games and resorted to violence. One incident is about a mother that was jailed because she tried to hire a hit man to kill the mother of her daughter’s cheerleading rival. Other incidents include a woman being charged with assault and battery for kicking and swearing at an 11-year-old boy who had been fighting with her son at the baseball field
