“Fighting Time” is a regular occurrence in our house. It usually involves the kids tackling Alex on our king sized bed and trying out fancy punches and kicks, while he does his best to protect his…interests (because they always seem hit him where the sun doesn’t shine).
There are all sorts of articles out there that suggest play fighting can help kids to test their own strength and limits in a safe way. I don’t know about all that, but I do know that my kids need their fighting time to get out the frustration that comes from having to try to be good all of the time. And it’s just super fun to see what creative moves they will come up with next!
Does your family have fighting time? What do you call it?
