I don't know if I should be concerned about this or what I should do about it.
My son is totally obsessed with knights and armor and bows/arrows (his Dad does archery in our backyard, so that's where he learned about the bows/arrows). DS spends most of his imaginative play time pretending to fight 'monsters and dragons' with his imaginary sword or his bow and arrow. We recently went to our town's medieval fair and so got some more exposure to jousting and sword fighting.
We constantly try to reinforce that while it is okay to shoot at the dragons, it is NOT okay to pretend to shoot at people or pets. Recently DS has started pretending to shoot arrows at people that make him angry. Such as last night when I made him brush his teeth and put on pajamas. I've just been slightly annoyed at this behavior, but then I realized that if he was pretend shooting us with a gun I would be quite a bit more concerned. But really there is no difference between pretending to shoot your mom with an arrow than there is with a bullet.
Is this just typical boyish behavior? Should I try to stop this and how in the world would I do that?
