Said so much better than I could…

My friend Marabeth read my post below and forwarded me this link, an article about a child’s natural tendency towards guns, violence, power and aggression. It was really interesting and I learned things I had not heard of before and also reaffirmed some of the ways we have been handling guns that I didn’t really articulate below. When Declan brings them up, I don’t freak and we talk about it. (OK, I do freak, but I try not to show it). But this author gives some really concrete info one the how, whens and whats for handling kid power.

Thanks, Marabeth!

    you’re welcome! it really helped me as well…we still don’t have any toy guns here, but when we are at friends’ homes who do, i have been able to handle it a little better… glad it helped!
