 I know as a child, I forever has scabs on my knees, climbing up trees and swinging off lampposts! I was a massive tomboy! Its quite sad that parents what to wrap there children up in cotton wool to keep them safe, with limited physical education we are turning in to gadget geeks. Its ok for children to take a tumble or play rough its all part of growing up.

Although im quite proud my five year old son can use an Ipad, I'm always proud he strives on being active! This next book explains The art Of Roughousting and how are are important in our children's lives.

''Everywhere you look, physical play—what some might call “roughhousing”— is being marginalised. Gym classes are getting shorter. Recess periods are being eliminated. Some new schools don’t even have playgrounds. Is it any wonder children retreat to “virtual horseplay” via video games? But Dr's. Anthony T. DeBenedet and Lawrence J. Cohen are here to shake things up—literally! With The Art of Roughhousing, they show how rough-and-tumble play can nurture close connections, solve behaviour problems, boost confidence, and more. Drawing inspiration from gymnastics, martial arts, ballet, traditional sports, and even animal behaviour, the authors present dozens of illustrated activities for children and parents to enjoy together—everything from the “Sumo Dead Lift” to the “Rogue Dumbo.” These delightful games are fun, free, and contain many surprising health benefits for parents. So put down those electronic games and get ready to rumble''
