Hey guys! At the request of our directors we’re going to take things a little serious this week! I understand this is kind of a touchy subject and I will do my best to handle it with care! Before we get too deep into this topic I feel its necessary to let you know that my family owns and uses gun, we have them in our home. I am in NO way trying to push my agenda or beliefs on my readers!
As a kid playing cops and robbers, cowboys and Indians or even just bad guys was totally acceptable. And every kid in my family at one point wanted a red rider bb gun just like the one Ralphy had on a Christmas story! But times they are a changing, although playing guns is completely age appropriate we live in a time where school shootings and accidental deaths are a thing, making those age appropriate activities a little less tolerable in public settings. In our schools we have noticed a major increase in the desire to play guns and threaten to bring guns to school when upset. For that reason we ask that each family, whether they have/ like guns or not to take some time this week and talk to your children about gun safety. We understand this can be a tricky thing with young kids so I have listed some ways to have a productive lesson at home!
