ALRIGHT. SO I DONT BELIEVE IN TOY GUNS, BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT VIOLENCE IS A BEHAVIOR THAT IS TAUGHT. HOWEVER I WANT TO GET MY CHILD INTO BOXING. BECAUSE I THINK IT'D BE GOOD FOR HIM. AS WELL AS FOOTBALL WHEN HE GETS A LITTLE OLDER. HOWEVER I WAS TALKING TO MY NEIGHBOR THE OTHER NIGHT AND SHE SAID ITS THE SAME THING. GUNS VS. SPORTS? IS THAT TEACHING THEM VIOLENCE?

Those are aggressive sports. If you ever watch even young children play hockey or football, you will see that it is aggressive. However it will not teach them to be violent individuals. Learning violence does not come from even playing with guns. My husband works for the sheriffs dept so we have guns in our home. Our kids do not even think twice about them. I agree with the other post that violence is taught on other levels. Watching movies or video games that are violent can desensitize children. I would be more concerned about that then learning boxing. If anything boxing will teach discipline to your child. Good luck!
