Is it okay to "rough house" with my
Children enjoy physical play but be cautious, as their bodies and physical coordination are still developing. Even playful shaking or throwing can be harmful. Young children should NEVER be shaken, even in a gentle way. Shaking a child can lead to brain injury and cause permanent damage or even death.
