  • writeon you are SO funny, I know what you mean!! op your gut tells you he's too young. Why are you letting him. Some sports are not as vicious as others. Why does he have to play football at this age? If you don't want him to then don't let him. Simple. Dad says he plays? Which of you takes care of ds when he's sick? Since I do in my family, I rule. I've got enough to do as a human, woman, mom, wife without putting in ego games at an early age if ever. Just say no.
