While growing up, one of the significant pillars of foundation in the personality of a child in sports and games. In some way or the other, the lessons learnt and experiences earned by playing some form of sport constitutes one of the cornerstones of the way a child behaves while growing up. Sports undoubtedly play a vital role in the physical, psychological and social development of a child. Nevertheless, apart from the apparent risk of injuries, can sports also have some negative effect on the child’s development? Can non-stop participation in sports, harsh treatment by the coaches/ trainers, pressure from parents and so many other factors risk causing an irreversible psychological trauma to a child which might evolve into troubling personality traits when the child grows up?What have been the prior attempts to solve the problem?Well, the aim has always been to rectify the warning signs at an early age so that they do not completely integrate into the children’s behaviour when they reach their late teens. One of the primary solutions of a child exhibiting troubling behaviour (like indulging in violence while playing a sport, self-isolating themselves after a bad result, depression, being bullied by peers etc.) which will improve their psychological health is the support and intervention of their parents/ guardians. A support system is always needed for children while growing up and especially at a stage where they are absorbing every little thing without any conscious filter. Whenever children find themselves directionless, running on low self-esteem and unmotivated for their next game, they look for a helping hand and guidance. Parents and guardians should always be on a lookout whenever they see these red flags in their child. Another solution of this issue was teachers, schools, coaches and any academic entity with which children are associated with steeping in the picture. The coaches/ trainers make sure that they do not put unnecessary on a child to perform week in week out at such a tender age. The teachers and school also ensure that a child’s academic performance is not affected in any way because of sports and a healthy balance are maintained between academics and sports so that they do not lag behind education and have an overall development. This avoids burnout, mood swings, decrease in enjoyment levels while playing their favourite sport, abrasive and aggressive behaviour.What are the proposed behaviour changes?The parents and guardians are primarily responsible for their child’s physical and mental health. The proposed behaviour strategy to avoid a child’s troubled personality and behaviour while growing up will initially start by parents addressing the elephant in the room directly. It is the parents who will determine which side outweighs the other. Whenever they come across a red flag in the behaviour of their child, they should not overlook it and try to understand how the kid is feeling. Suppose there are instances like eating disorders, anger issues, strained friendships, etc., while a child is training or even during an actual game. In that case, it should be addressed and pointed out by the guardians. Parents should try to change this behaviour in the children by personally indulging in activities and exercises with their child. They can try playing the sport along with their child, and if these issues come up during then, they should make sure to educate the child why such behaviour is not suitable for them. Parents should behave like the child’s teammate and try to ease out the situation through communication and love. They should also support their child’s efforts in sports by making sure that they are present at each match when their child is playing and cheer them from the sidelines. Another proposed behaviour change strategy is the ability to take criticism and work collaboratively. This advice/ suggestion is easier said than done. However, if done efficiently by the parents or even by the teachers, it will make the child more mature and conductive. Looking up to and idolizing their favourite athlete will also help in behaviour change and compliment a well-groomed, healthy development of a child. A child can integrate and acquire skills like work ethic, fair play, time management, teamwork, respect for others, ability to follow orders in his/ her behaviour and even learn leadership qualities if they have someone to look up to.What are the conditions under which such proposed suggestions would work?Handling a child’s health and development at a tender age is a very demanding, challenging and an uphill task. Obviously, there are so many factors which have to click and fall in place for the healthy overall development of a child. The conditions under which the earlier proposed strategies would work should be a very understanding, patient, loving and communication-oriented environment. The environment and individuals handling such a sensitive situation should be very mature and willing to go to the extra mile for the child. Another favourable condition should be an all-inclusive environment which complements and encourages a child’s interest in sports right from the grassroots levels. Open-mindedness and willingness to help a child out is a must as well. Acknowledging and confronting the problems are also a must. Awareness about the crucial roles that sports play in our society and the powerful psychological pressures they exert on children, families, and communities at times is essential as well. Children experience these troubling emotions just as adults do and an environment that encourages doing exercises is another great way to help combat these unwanted behavioural traits.Talking about the conditions under which the strategies will not work are bound to revolve around parents and individuals who have some authority. Parents who are overly invested, pushy, have delusional expectations, result-oriented, demeaning, critical and unaware of the mental health of their child will hinder a child’s health and development. Abusive treatment by the trainers and coaches, coupled with a hostile academic environment, will also add fuel to the fire.
Hours after news broke that the state Supreme Court issued Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla a censure for “unethical” conduct, the city council pushed forward in pursuing a way to force the mayor to disclose his legal clients.[fve]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GkDj4v_5Rg&feature=youtu.be[/fve]“We received a memo on this from corporation counsel … can you just give a synopsis of your conclusions,” Councilman-at-Large James Doyle asked City Corporation Counsel Brian Aloia.“I did reach out to the [state] local finance board and explained to them the basis of the ordinance. I had a nice conversation with a young lady there, who helped me out,” Aloia began.“… [If] this ordinance was passed by the council, the finance board would not enforce the ordinance as far as reporting requirements in therein, of course they would still, as they always do, enforce any potential conflicts.”As Hudson County View first reported, the council passed the first reading of a measure earlier this month that would require Bhalla to disclose all income from his of counsel gig atÂ Lavery, Selvaggi, Abromitis & Cohen, P.C.Prior to that June 7th meeting, Aloia issued a legal opinion that such an ordinance would not be legal and therefore would not be enforceable.1st Ward Councilman Mike DeFusco, a staunch political rival of Bhalla, was happy to remind everyone that theyÂ first heard about his of counsel position on the Friday before a holiday weekend in February.“What happens in statewide law firms is they walk the line that you just heard: they walk the line of ‘oh, we didn’t know.’ We just heard that today: the mayor was censured by the state Supreme Court and his reply was ‘I didn’t know,’” DeFusco said.“This council caught a campaign finance breach before it became pay to play and we brought it to the administration. I don’t understand, for the life of me, how we can’t, in good faith, pass and shine sunshine on who’s paying the mayor?”Just three hours before last night’s meeting, The Jersey Journal revealed that Bhalla was censured by the New Jersey Supreme Court on June 13th for not setting aside over $6,000 for a former employee’s retirement account between 2008 and 2009.The 13-page decision, which reveals that three judges out of nine voted for Bhalla to receive a three-month law license suspension (four voted for the censure, two did not vote), did not paint him in a very favorable light.” … In our view, respondent’s nonchalance regarding Bentsen’s missing monies, over the course of six years, including while he was under investigation and then disciplined in another matter, justifies enhancement from a reprimand to a censure,” the decision says.Despite this fact, Aloia stood firm that the ordinance, as written, would not be valid.“I will not sign off on it, and to answer the councilperson, there’s no way I could enforce it,” Aloia said after further questioning from Doyle.Council President Ruben Ramos, another political nemesis of Bhalla, said that prior to the meeting, he sat down with Bhalla in his office to discuss southwest redevelopment.That private sit down ultimately degenerated into both sides using “very colorful language” that resulted in Ramos walking out, he explained.While that meeting did not go as planned, Ramos said that he is confident they will be able to worth together in the future for the betterment of Hoboken.“That’s the job we’re here for, to be big boys and big girls, and move things forward for whoever we need to move things forward for.”A short time later, Ramos agreed to table the measure, but also told Aloia he was seeking to start a local ethics board in order to eventually make Bhalla’s clients and contracts public.Aloia said that would be the proper way to move forward if this was a matter the council wanted to continue to pursue and that he would help have something prepared by the July 11th meeting.Bhalla spokesman Rob Horowitz said that the mayor is open to having a local ethics board, but also noted it’s time for Ramos to stop playing politics.“Mayor Bhalla is open to a constructive proposal for an Ethics Board or Commission. But it is long past time for Council President Ramos to stop the personal and nakedly political attacks and focus on doing the people’s business,” he said in an email.The full discussion on the matter, which streamed live on our Facebook page, can be viewed below:Editor’s Note: This story has been updated with a comment from Rob Horowitz, a spokesman for Mayor Ravi Bhalla.Â Community Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By John Heinis – June 21, 2018 10:11 am 1 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Comments are closed.

The decision is very damning. We have a Mayor that would screw an employee out of funds and lie to the IRS. It says that there is no way to know where the money went. Even if he didn’t put it in his own pocket, he had a responsibility to correct the situation immediately when it came to his attention. Instead he blew it off until forced to correct the shortage.Hoboken has a crook for a Mayor.

Share Single individuals tend to have a lower desire for a romantic relationship when they are more socially satisfied and place their friends higher in their life priorities, according to new research published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships.“The population of singles is on the rise and very few seem to care. In the U.S. alone, Pew notes that the share of married adults age 18 and older has declined from 72% in 1960 to 50% in 2016. Of course, many talk about this shift per se, but very few discuss the characteristics of this growing population,” said researcher Elyakim Kislev of the School of Public Policy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.“I believe that it is important to study how relationship desire appears in singles’ lives, how their lives look like. Being single myself, I know that there are new communities of singles, new ways of life, and new patterns of behavior that we must acknowledge and research. In this particular research, I focused on the group of singles who are not seeking relationships. I estimate this group to be around 20% of the total population of singles.” Pinterest Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Email LinkedIn For his study, Kislev examined data from the German Panel Analysis of Intimate Relationships and Family Dynamics (Pairfam), a longitudinal survey of more than 12,000 individuals and their partners, parents, and children. As part of the survey, single participants were asked the degree to which they agreed or disagreed with the statement “I would like to have a partner.”The survey also assessed how satisfied the participants were with their friends and level of social contact, and the relative importance of friends in their life.After controlling for factors such as age, health, education, employment, income satisfaction, and number of children, Kislev found that the importance of friends and social satisfaction were correlated with the degree of choosing singlehood.“My findings show that people that desire relationships at higher levels tend to assign their friends lower importance and are less satisfied with their social lives. And vice versa, singles with less relationship desire think their friends are more important and are also more satisfied with their social lives,” he told PsyPost.“In short, these results show that singles with low relationship desire are more social and derive greater support from their friends. These findings also defy common negative perceptions of singles with low relationship desire as having social difficulties.Longitudinally, single participants who reported an increase in their level of social satisfaction and the relative importance of friendships from one year to the following one showed a decrease in their desire to find a partner.In his book, “Happy Singlehood: The Rising Acceptance and Celebration of Solo Living“, Kislev finds that single people, especially those who have been single for a long time, have more extensive social networks than do their married peers, which can help buffer singles against feelings of loneliness.But there is still much to learn about the social life of singles.“I would be happy to know more about the social net of singles. It might well be that singles with low relationship desire transfer some of the assumed responsibilities of the nuclear family to their networks of friends and I want to know more about how it looks like and about what shapes communities of singles these days,” Kislev said.“We should ask how the ‘new singles’ create communities, how they derive social support from their friends and wider family, and how these new constructs relate to their overall well-being over their life span.”“I believe the population of singles deserves more attention as such. I will even dare to say that we need to accept and embrace solo living more. Chasing after having a partner is fine as long as it is in line with our true goals, not those of our family or the society around us,” Kislev added.The study, “How do relationship desire and sociability relate to each other among singles? Longitudinal analysis of the Pairfam survey“, was published June 24, 2020.(Image by Laura Smith from Pixabay)
