I know I will get a lot of 'boys will use sticks as guns, it's just what they do' responses but I wondered if there were any other parents here who have successfully managed to at least keep toy guns out of their houses?
My DS (almost 4) has already started making shooting actions, talking about 'good shot' and mentioned 'killing monsters with guns' which I know he has picked up from nursery and my DHs tendency to let him watch slightly unsuitable cartoons (scooby doo, super ted).
I have tried explaining that guns are just not nice things to have but clearly it's all just a game to DS.
Was quite aghast at his similar aged cousin threatening to shoot my DS this week.
Anyone been able to successfully keep guns away from their kids (boys I suppose) even after they have started school?
