Procedural changes impede the chamber's traditional deliberative function
Topic - Marshall Cunningham
In a new joint policy statement released Monday, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Paediatric Society discourage boxing among children and teenagers, citing the possibility of concussions, facial damage and other injuries.
Parents, particularly those in the inner city, Mr. Cunningham said, see boxing as a "positive alternative" to hanging out on the street or turning to drugs and alcohol, and they see value in allowing their children to take out their natural aggression in the ring.
He said his son "has never even had a busted lip," but he understands why some parents may be reluctant to let their children take up the sport.
