Obviously a lot of thoughts here and points to be made.
This is something I’ve thought about but I’m not sure where I stand on the issue yet- I go back and forth between a few things. Where do we draw the line as parents? Can’t we let our children play with toys as long as we’re teaching them what’s right and wrong? Then again, is a fake plastic toy gun a good idea? Do we want our children playing with a gun, even if it is fake? What is going through their mind when they’re playing with these toys?
I couldn’t even find a picture online to go with this post that I thought was appropriate. Just the image of seeing little boys playing with these things is sort of disturbing.
What about squirt guns? Are these toys harmful or dangerous?
This is a great topic for discussion. What does your family do? Do you let your kids play with toy guns? Why or why not?
