Did you know that roughhousing is good for kids?

Does that mean I shouldn't be stopping them?

LOL! I admit that I'm not a huge fan of roughhousing, but I'll let the kids do it outside. I think there's an appropriate time and place for it. I'd stop mine if they were doing it inside where they could either hurt themselves (like on the corner of a table) or break something. We have a decent sized open area of the house where I think they'd be OK, but it's not an area where it dawns on them to try the roughhousing thing.

Hmmmm..interesting. But I think rough housing makes me insane. It may, like puzzles, be good for the kids but it is a express train to me getting upset. lol

LOL! Yes, it does drive me crazy quickly (as does running in the house). That's a big reason why I'm not a fan.
