Just a few miles away from our country, there is a concentration of children in a poor context and in very deprived conditions showing the body of today. We refer to the north of a neighboring continent, a population that has shown us , once again, the difficulties to get out of that loop called underdevelopment. Therefore, to compare the behavior of children in both countries could be made, especially since our Western view leads us to classify people by their actions. So it is easier to consider any child that exceeds its freedom as to what the legal and political framework are permitting as infringing. But our vision is different, the context to which this group is exposed is more than slightly dangerous and get these children include a classification somewhat tedious to have suffered irremediable situation - without desiring them - would be unfair. And even though it is not an easy path, our experience with the sport as safe conduct towards improving behavior and empowering emotions, making us reconsider the possible resources to work with this group as noted in our days.
