Is Play Fighting Permissible?



My son under 13 is very sensory. He feels the need to jump on people, play fight etc. Is it permissible for a father to play fight with his son boxing etc.? Knowing that his son will hit him back and play fight?



This wouldn’t be appropriate even with someone else, and definitely shouldn’t be done with the father.
