Why You Should Wrestle And Rough House With Your Kids

It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye, but until then your kids will get physically stronger, may do better in school and will develop stronger emotional bonds with their parents and their friends. That’s what doctors Anthony T. DeBenedet and Lawrence Cohen found in their research, anyway, and they’ve developed a program with over 70 ways you can responsibly throw your kids around the house (or raft them down the stairs on a mattress — although that’s for advanced rough housers only). If the missus has a problem with you building a ring in the backyard, tell her the doctor told you to do it.
