This was cool!! It talked about if  your children should play football. What I got from it was football is in the top 3 most concussion sports! This kid was 4 years old and gave 4 or 5 kids a concussion or knocked them out. If I was the mother, if my child hit someone to the ground or knocked them out. I would get up and walk myself down there grab him and leave. Not cheer on for the little kid to do it again, like in the article. This article intersted me and is a good life lesson article.
