Should boys be allowed some rough and tumble activities, even if they are violent? Should they be allowed to play with pretend guns and other weapons? Some experts say yes, others no.

Is violent play an important developmental activity that helps boys grow into men or is it an undesirable activity that if not checked, can lead to adult violence?

What do you think?
