Do young boys benefit from roughhousing?

Love the CBC in my daily commute, and today it was all about a report  titled  “Better Supporting our Boys” that amongst other recommendations includes one that supports roughhousing.

From a CBC News report titled  Quebec daycares urged to ‘positively welcome’ roughhousing for boys the 28-page report includes six “winning practices”:

  • Welcome all children with kindness.
  • Give a place to each child in the group.
  • Create an environment that is conducive to building a masculine identity.
  • Positively welcome war games and battle games.
  • Create opportunities for challenges and competitions.
  • Enrich reading activities.

Here are some other selected articles (in no order) on roughhousing:
