    let our kids play football. Luckily they haven't been dying to, just a bit of asking here and there. Soccer doesn't bother me as much since I played for years (3rd-11th grade) without anyone I knew getting a concussion. I know it is possible but I think it is a lot rarer in soccer.

    My older one plays baseball and it does occasionally happen that someone in the field gets hit in the head or face. My son was pitching one time and a kid hit it right back at him and it hit the top of his head. Luckily it glanced off the cap. He had a headache but no concussion. It can be scary.
