Let us face it - skateboarding is one of those sports that parents are quite hesitant about, not only because they fear for the safety of their children, but more importantly because of the influences kids get from their peers.
However, it would not be fair at all to brand skateboarding as an evil sport. In fact, it has kept many kids active, taught them to achieve their goals, and challenged them in so many ways. Moreover, this sport is not wanting of good and quality role models in the society. In fact, there are famous skateboarders who are outspoken believers in God, supporters of many charities and other worthy causes, advocates of environmental organisations, and even masters degree holders.
The risk of getting hurt and being influenced by a company of people who do drugs and alcohol is something that your child may have to face whether he is into this sport or not. Thus, the crucial factor would be how you have raised and taught your kid at home because, in the end, your child decides for himself what is right and wrong.
