    This iReport is part of an assignment:
    Guns and children

    Talk to them and make them aware.

    I tell my 8 and 10 year old boys that real guns are dangerous. If they are with a friend and a gun is pulled out, they need to gracefully exit. Accidents happen all the time. Shooting guns at people is not as fun as it seems on the digital games. Real violence is much more troubling than movies or games and can scar you for life both physically and emotionally. They understand and are cautious. They like Nerf, shooting games, soft air guns, laser tag...but they understand the difference.
