Hi, I had my son late in life. His dad is no longer in the picture. When he was 4-5 he liked to play cops and robbers like all kids (I think). Long story short he's my only child. People have bought him those cheap plastic handcuffs over the years and I would let him arrest and handcuff me. Fast forward a couple of years, he's 7 now. Recently he wanted to play cops and robbers after watching an old Roy Rogers show where Dale Evans was tied up. I agreed as it was a lazy, rainy day. I held my wrist out and he said " No. Behind your back." Ok I thought. He lead me to a chair and said "I'll be right back." he came back with some nylon rope (I have no idea where he got it.) He proceeded to tie my ankles together. Fairly tightly.He said I need something to keep you quite. In a firm voice I said "No way!" Anyway I could break the handcuffs in a matter of seconds but my ankles wouldn't be that easy. The whole game lasted 10-15 minutes and he was off to another activity. He has mentioned wanting to play this agin. I threw away the rope. I don't want him to grow up thinking tying up girls is ok. Should I nip this in the bud right now?
