I found this article very well constructive and influential as it tells the truth as to what parents are like and how they react on the sidelines. I can relate to this as my mother was the same 'hostile' off field.

Masculinity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Masculinity is a set of qualities, characteristics or roles generally considered typical of, or appropriate to, a man. It can have degrees of comparison: "more masculine", "most masculine'". The opposite can be expressed by terms such as "unmanly'" or epicene.[1] A near-synonym of masculinity is virility (from Latin vir, man). Constructs of masculinity vary across historical and cultural contexts. The dandy, for instance, was regarded as an ideal of masculinity in the 19th century, but is considered effeminate by modern standards.[2]

Academic study of masculinity underwent a massive expansion of interest in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with courses in the United States dealing with masculinity rising from 30 to over 300.[3] This has led to the investigation of the intersection of masculinity with other axes of social discrimination and also to the use of concepts from other fields - such as feminism's model of the social construct of gender.[4]

The extent to which masculinity is a result of nature or nurture, a matter of what someone is born with or how they are socialised, has been the subject of much debate. Genome research has yielded much information about the development of masculine characteristics and the process of sexual differentiation specific to the reproductive system of human beings.. The SRY gene on the Y chromosome, which is critical for male sexual development, activates SOX9.[6] SOX9 associates with Sf1 to increase the level of Anti-Müllerian hormone to repress female development while activating and forming a feedforward loop with FGF9, which creates the testis cords and is responsible for the proliferation of sertoli cells.[7] The activation of SRY interferes with the process of creating a female, causing a chain of events that leads to testes formation, androgen production, and a range of pre-natal and post-natal hormonal effects. There is an extensive debate about how children develop gender identities. On the nature side of the debate, it is argued that masculinity is inextricably linked with the male body. In this view, masculinity is something that is associated with the biological male sex and having male genitalia, for instance, is regarded as a key aspect of masculinity.[8]

My mum doesn't allow my sister to play rugby because she didn't want her to get injured.
Tyler Callum Owen's comment, August 17, 2014 9:22 PM
This article is true because parents really do wrap their kids in cotton wool. I think that kids should be free to do what they want, and parents should stay as the spectator because its the kids choice not the adult. I read the quote 'soccer is more skillful than rugby', which is completely untrue both sports have their merits and required skills. Soccer is just a craze because its the biggest sport in the world compared to other sports who pride themselves on being different. Kids are just joining in on the craze to be quite honest.
Todd Davies's comment, August 18, 2014 6:37 PM
This article does tell us how parents wrap their kids in cotton wool but with all the harmful injuries such as head injuries, parents do have the right to protect their child from the danger of head injuries. This isn't to say not to let them play rugby or other sports but maybe start them in another sport to see how they enjoy sport and if they want to play rugby in the future let them have the choice.
