My husband and I have three boys our three year old wants a toy rifle gun for Christmas. So we did it's wrap under the tree. I've talk to my son about guns and how they can hurt people. He said he knows and doesn't want to hurt anyone he want to pretend to shot and not point at any one. After what happened in the Newtown I even talked to my boys about that we were sad and lit candles for the angels every night. Me and my husband were wondering about that toy under the tree.I know we grew up playing with toy guns and everything turn out fine...just wondering what you parents think about toy guns and maybe what i should do!?

It is up to you. But, the toy gun isn't a bad thing and wouldn't have harmed him in any way. It is after all, a toy.

What you do is up to you. I will never buy my son a toy gun and the only guns he has are brightly colored water guns. I hate guns though....

I don't have any problem w/ him having play swords though. ;)
