Does anyone have a kid who is pre-occupied with violence?
I run a Meetup group in Chicagoland and we have one family where the child's special interest happens to be violent, grotesque things.
Thanks a lot for sharing; it is very helpful and yes you have made some helpful and important points that I'm going to use; like renting a Star Wars movie.
My 8 yr old son's latest obsession has been weapons of war.
Wow, I thought I was the only one and didn't know how to explain it to people who haven't walked in "our" shoes when he starts the shooting gestures/noises and he seems to enjoy crashing his bike into other kids bikes and starts laughing when they crash or fall -- it is very distrubing and very hard to understand even for me.
Star Wars seems to be very popular, and my almost 10 yr old loves it.
