How Are You Getting Hurt?

It's scraped knees, bruised elbows and bashed heads. We're talking about sports injuries. Every year, there are millions of kidz hurt playing sports. These can be things like a scraped knee when you fall off your bike or a minor concussion when you get nailed in the head with a pitch during baseball practice.

Many sports injuries are just a matter of luck and circumstances and can be tough to prevent. I mean, if your little brother wasn't watching and you nailed him in the nuts with a line drive, what are you supposed to do? But many injuries can be prevented. Many of us get hurt when we're tired, because our muscles are weaker or our brains are weaker and we're not watching what we're doing. So if you're tired or worn out, take a break for a while. Play again when you're well rested. When your muscles and bones are still growing, they can often get injured easily. But the good news is, broken bones in kidz heal quicker compared to the bones in adults.

Here's a list of the most common sports injuries for kidz up to 14 years of age in America.

All figures are for the year 2000.

I cut my ear open when I was running and jogging up a hard step after my school disco. It was painful and I had to have stitches!!!

    If you really want to get rid of the romantic feelings for him, just try picturing a future with him, and also asking these questions in your head, "Is he a good guy?" "Would we last?" But maybe he's acting awkward around you, because your friend asked him to Prom, but he might rather go with you, but doesn't know how to say anything about the situation. I would suggest talking to him about it, and if he is a jerk about it, don't bother. But talk to him first, and if he has the same feelings, then talk to your friend about it. I just want to warn you, that if you do this, you and others could get their feelings hurt. Crushes are a risky, scary thing in high school. Anyway, that's what I think you should do. If you don't want to do that, then follow what your intuition tells you.
