Shouldn't it be a crime for parents allowing their young kids to get into boxing and full contact sports? A story in the Journal this morning about a young girl's quest to be a boxer just amazes me. She is being trained by a relative to enter the ring and risk repeated concussions and injury. If that same person was to slap her around continually he would most likely end up in jail. This is nothing but child abuse in my book. Innocent kids trying to please their superiors and not really being told of possible consequences or being able to understand the consequences is shameless. I know there will be vehement disagreement with me on this, but think of the pain these kids endure in hoping for acceptance. No one under the age of 14 should be allowed in boxing and full contact sports.
