1. A current debate concerns participation in contact sports given the risk of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), such as post-concussive syndrome and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). The issues informing this debate seem especially relevant given neurodevelopment concerns for young children and teens. For this week’s discussion, explore the risks and benefits of contact sports for children. Examine the short-term and long-term effects of mild-to-moderate TBIs, when children are injured. Then, provide your own perspective on whether youth programs, such as tackle football, should continue as is, be changed (and if so, how), or be banned altogether. Be sure to substantiate your position with at least one scholarly source.
