that mere participation in and of itself leads
to the development of moral character. In

participation may be more likely to negatively
affect moral character. Morally Can keep people busy and out of trouble This could be due to the fact that when playing sports in school, a student must keep a certain grade or they are not allowed to participate until they have brought their grades up. Children who have a higher self-esteem typically do better academically because they feel confident in themselves. They are also less likely to drop out due to the fact that they love themselves and want what is best for them. Summary Social Mental Moral Price- Mitchell, M. (2012, January 08).
