Do you allow your children to watch boxing?
What age are they? Did you ever restrict them from watching boxing?
I'm curious, because my 3 year old daughter, loves boxing, she always has, It was one of the few things that would quiet her as an infant, I often figured it was the sounds and the colours of the trunks, gloves, etc when she was younger, but now she's paying more attention to it and starting to take in some of the idea of punching and not getting punched, etc... she loves daddy's mitts, and really wants to use my speed bag and double end bag.
I worked with her on the mitts a bit, it was cute, and was great daddy daughter time, an activity we both enjoyed, but I started to wonder if this could be a terrible idea. We've talked about it being a sport, and these people have agreed to do this, and its not appropriate to hit people...etc etc good parent BS... etc etc...
But the idea of her hauling off and thwacking one of her friends because they agreed to box having no idea what she meant.
Either way, I'm curious about your opinion.
