    I want to do Amateur boxing, I have been training in boxing for 3 years now and I am 17 years old. The thing is though is that my mum does not want me doing it as she thinks that it will make me aggressive and have a bad attitude problem and that it will also distract me from education. However my dad is fine with me doing it. Any suggestions? I really love boxing, it is my favourite sport.

    I would say, sell it to her as a means of exercise and stress relief that will relieve your aggression so that it will make you less aggressive in your everyday life?

    So neither of them have expressed concern about the key issue: the risk of brain damage?

    You do know that in amateurs you wear headguards right?

    I think you should just do it, considering that you love it so much and have already spent years practising. Considering that your father supports, it's unlikely that your mum can just force you to stop. Having an extracurricular activity won't (or at least shouldn't) distract you from your education either.

    Ah, that's issue. It may come down to you and your dad having to convince your mum that's it's a good idea. That or wait it out until your 18th so that you don't need her permission
