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!!!

I agree with sugarpetals I'm sorry to say but she is right.

    It's not wrong, it's not right, it's up to an individual tbh. If you're gay, and others have a problem, then it's them that need to change, not you. Don't give in to peer pressure, do what feels right for you
