However, I am not so quick to write off the violence.

My five-year-old son has never seen the television show, the ``Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,'' but during the two days a week that he attends day care, he plays Power Rangers with the other children.

Many times he comes home, throws karate kicks, and punches at our dog and at my husband and me.

Not all children are able to distinguish between play acting and actual physical contact. Nancy Turner Katz, Norwich, Vt.
