Do you let your kids play with Nerf?
I know there is a lot of hubub with kids and violence and whatnot these days, but my husband and I (we're just overgrown kids, really!) looooove to have Nerf fights with the guns and swords. How do you feel about your little ones playing with 'weapons?'
They do use anything to reenact what is read to them or they see in their TV shows. My husband is a huge history buff and wants our children to know the true history of the United States so he has watched war movies with our children. Our boys will replay those movies and play war. I don't see anything wrong with it as it is a part of their learning process. We do not like them shooting at each other but in war army men do fight so what we like to say is, "The only time you shoot someone is if you are defending your family, your property or your country."
Come to think of it there's a bank commercial where there's a helicopter and a war scene of some sort and my husband pointed out that it was not a WWI, or WWII whichever it was, helicopter and "those people need to get their history correct." I thought is was funny that he picked that out.
