Essay on Little Kids at the Skatepark
The skateboarder/roller-blader/biker aren’t able to stop their forward motion, thus resulting in a collision. It is nobody’s fault but the parent’s for letting their young ones go play at the skate park. Of course the kid is happy playing at the park, until he is crying and in pain. No child should undergo this suffering and trauma. One day, a dad and his little boy were out there riding their skateboards together. Everything was alright until the kid decided to ride in the bowl. [A pool like hole in the ground where people can ride their skateboard, bike, roller-blades. Well, the little boy did not notice a guy already riding his bike in the pool. As soon as the biker saw the kid, it was too late, the biker couldn’t stop his momentum and the kid froze in fear. One of the biker’s pegs cut the boy behind his ear. The only thing the dad had to say was, “I’m going to wait a little while before we leave because my ass is grass when I get home. (He was referring to the boy’s mother being at his house. )” When somebody gets his/her thumb smashed in the door, “ouch! ” isn’t usually the only words that come out of his/her mouth.
The skate park is a place where people naturally go through pain worse than getting their thumb smashed in the door. Children are like parrots, they repeat whatever they hear. Surely, no mother would like to hear her little son swear under any circumstance. If the kid repeats what he heard and his mother heard him, the mother would undoubtedly punish her kid. This would displeasure the mom since no parent likes to discipline their child, and no child likes to be disciplined. Others argue however, that the skate park is a public place and is meant for kids of all ages.
The park is for everybody to use and enjoy, but surely the little ones won’t be able to enjoy it when they find themselves hurt from not paying attention and freezing out of fear. Some argue that the people riding their bike/skateboard/roller-blades should pay more attention and look out for the little kids. Before the person riding the bike/skateboard/roller-blades takes off to go do a trick on the obstacle he scans to make sure the coast is clear. If it is clear and is safe to go, he will proceed to go on and do his maneuver. It is hard to judge the next action of children.
You never know if they are going to move out of the way or freeze up. The one who moves out of the way turns out either turns out fine, or he may get in somebody else’s way and he will get ran into. The one who freezes up will just get hurt. My brother, Evan, had the first incident happen to him. A little boy just got done moving away from somebody else when he happened to get right into my brother’s path. Evan didn’t see the boy suddenly move into his path, until it was too late. Evan was fine, but the boy ended up with a minor concussion. Ivan Willis Ethics Utilitarianism Argument
