Do you allow your kids to play with balls in the house?

We do...one of favorite games to play is dodge ball-in the house- we throw balls and kick them in the house

I was working in the nursery the other day with this lady and this kid throws the ball and she goes "oh hunny we don't throw the ball inside" I was thinking well don't ever come to my house

we don't have anything that is expensive that could break- no lamps- only some pictures but frames are cheap

  • Nope... We have a huge yard, front and back, if they can't do it out there then they don't do it. The balls are kept in the garage anyway so they have to go out to get them anyway... If I wanted to play ball in my house we would have built a gymnasium instead of a house.

  • we play ball in the house. my babies are still young. so me and daddy are the ones who knock things over :) but i think its good and fun for my 15 month old to throw balls all around an be crazy. maybe if her and her brother were a lot older i'd tell them to go outside. but the occasional "ball fight" will always be acceptable.

  • No, and I don't have a stick up my butt. Kids can be kids, but they also need to have limits. I think as long as your child knows that they don't do this in other peoples' houses then have at it.

  • There is limited ball throwing and only in certain rooms. I have breakables and paintings that I would cry is broken. Plus there is a back yard to throw, kick, bounce, and what ever else they want to do with it.

  • I only have one kid and he's only 15 months. I let him toss around his bouncy ball. When he's old enough to know how to throw and kick it no way will it be in the house. I have more respect for our home and our belongings.
