  • Forget all those other people!! Kids are kids!! I'm sure when they were younger they played house! With a mom and a dad and a baby!! Do you think they bases their life on that one game? People now a days are being so stupid about what is right and wrong about kiddos! As long as you are making sure that they are safe, fed , happy and doin' their homework it shouldn't matter what kind of game you play! You know you love your kiddo and as long as there are no bad intentions towards them then just have fun

  • imo that's sick. also it's telling them if someone gets killed or hurt they can just get right back up and everything is a-ok. not cool, but then again it's your kid

  • Nah, it's a game. As long as you teach that there is a difference between their fake dead and real dead. Kids play games like that all the time anyway.

  • Kids play cops and robbers, Cowboys and Indians and all kinds of games were some one dies. Not to mention the movies and video games where some one dies and then comes back to life. Dying just happens to be a part of life. Enjoy them and the make believe games you can come up with. At least your taking the time to play with them on their level.

  • She's not a dog. This is in the toddler section, so it's just wrong.
