In Target today I saw a younger preschool age boy sitting in the cart while his mom checked out. He took a roll of Xmas wrap and pointed it in my direction (if he was aiming for me I don't know, nor do I care) and said "give me all your money" and made shooting noises.
What has this kid been watching?!?
Is this disturbing to anyone else?
The mom didn't seem at all phased by it, and unless she was spacing out and not paying attention to her son I don't see how she missed it. The gun noises and request for money were loud enough for me to hear, and I was several feet away. She noticed enough to take the roll from him. If it were my kid though, I would have been in his face making it clear that we don't pretend rob or shoot people.
Would you allow your child to get away with that in public?

I have two boys and they don't pretend playing guns. It's what they are taught or learn from others or see on T.V.. So yes it would have been a bit disturbing. It's not OK to point things at people and do what he did no matter what age. Teach your kids right and they won't do that.
