So I got this idea from the baby/tv thread. I have no issues with TV but I do monitor what is on around my son...but ever now and then we do watch UFC or boxing.
Background: His dad was a boxer and I am sure one day if they spend more time together his past stories will be brought up. J is the least aggressive child I have ever met and really enjoys watching. And of course he doesn't sit and watch the whole thing, zoned out and possessed. He watches bits and pieces here and there, asks who the "bad guy" is and cheers for the guy mommy cheers for.
I feel that it is a just a sport and while it can be violent, as long as he knows its an art/sport and we can't go around punching people, it would be ok. If he was more high strung, I would defiantly think twice about it.
What do you all think?
