UK Government: Let boys play with guns in nurseries
Young boys should be encouraged to play with toy guns and other weapons at nursery to get them interested in education, according to Government guidance.
Nursery staff are told in official advice to resist their "natural instinct" to stop under-fives playing with weapons in games with other toddlers.
A new document issued by the Department for Children, Schools and Families said children should be encouraged to take part in play which "involves more action." . . . .
