Nope, we risk our kids lives and our own in order to be 'accepted' by society. So its ok if we make that choice for them, but say playing football is too dangerous. Its hypocritical.
I love the game. Played it when I was young. Even played tackle- no pads during college. I did not let my kids play tackle football until they were 14. My main reason was the poor coaching and even worse attitudes that prevailed among the coaches and parents of kids playing tackle football. My secondary reason was safety. My oldest son played high school ball for a pretty successful HS program. The head coach told me he preferred kids coming to him with no football background because they had too many bad habits and were already suffering from joint injuries. He preferred former soccer players.
Already have, all the way up until he was 18.
