Rough play can be tough to look at especially if you’re a mom. To us, dads, it’s our simple way of bonding with our little kiddos; and a way to toughen them up a bit. In fact, experts even say that playing roughly – in moderation – can indeed be beneficial to kids. I sometimes play roughly with my 2 boys, Piero and Matteo. We tumble and wrestle; and getting lightly scarred and scratched sometimes happen.
