First of all, PLEASE, anyone and everyone, reply and be honest. My husband wants me to post this and I hope to give him a lot of replies, even if they do not favor my side of the argument. I will show him all of them, and hopefully, it provides us with food for thought.
If your child is badly injured in his sport, would you let him continue in said sport when he is healed?

If they still wanted to continue to play after they are healed, then yes, I would let them. My oldest has been injured in a few different sports, and she's always wanted to continue playing that sport.

Yes I have a 16 year old who has played hockey for 13 years, as another poster said 'you get back on the horse'. (Actually I used to ride and my mothers friend told me when I was about 5 or 6 and was thrown if I didn't get back on right then I never would I scurried my crying little butt right back on that horse and was glad I did) The only exception would be numerous concussions then the Dr. would be saying no more anyway.
I look at it this way, if the child fell down the stairs and broke a leg would you never let them on stairs again? Most of the time children don't get hurt playing sports.
