Interesting mention in the Atlantic.  As a clarification, AOR has a wide range of roughhousing games and activities that are of varying degrees of difficulty.

Giddyup, Dad! Hands-on play with your kids guarantees enormous fun (and probably some crying, but it’s worth it). Say the authors, a physician and a psychologist, respectively, “What was once a motto of Safety First has evolved into a fretful new motto of Safety Only. Many parents are more frightened by skinned knees and bruised feelings than life’s real dangers: stifled creativity and listless apathy.” Amen! Making their case for creativity, physical fitness, and emotional intelligence, the authors present nearly 200 pages of humorous and fun activities, such as the Balboa (“Yo, Adrian!”), the Sleeping Bat, and the Greek Catapult. Replete with suggested age ranges, a difficulty level, and effective drawings for each activity, this book nicely caters to kids from zero to ten, who will treasure the time parents spend roughhousing with them. Enthusiastically recommended.

 

—Julianne J. Smith, LibraryJournal.com starred review of The Art of Roughhousing


________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Art of Roughhousing isAn inspired defense of roughhousing! I guarantee that if you read just a few pages of this book, you’ll be down on the floor wrestling and laughing with your children.”

—Michael Thompson, Ph.D., coauthor of the national best seller Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys
