Foo help request for a silly problem

Ok, junior over here has an obsession with the military. Today, like any other Saturday, he's walking around the house, day dreaming of being a soldier. He keeps walking around making weapon noises and yelling battle cries and stuff ... incomming! Now go go go! bam bam bam... ratatatata! Kaboom!

I don't wanna micromanage but, I'm a night shifter and need some effing silence so I could get some sleep. So, I'm telling the boy that real soldiers of the special forces don't yell around because if they do, the enemy will discover them. He is skeptic...

If you can please post here some links with videos of soldiers doing special missions while silently communicating with hand signals I will appreciate it much.

that's all... thx

Com'on Foosters... I know you are bored! You can do it!

I would try to help you out...but Fort Bragg (home of the 82nd and the SF) just rattled my house with their artillery hard enough to knock a canister off the stove shelf

I will look and see what I can find for you. But unfortunately the silent stuff doesn't make for good movies or copy.

Tell him he needs to break down and clean that M-16 so it doesn't screw up on him, and he also needs to field strip the 105...all of those are quiet chores...except when you get a finger caught in the a part on the 105

You will have more success if you just tell him to play quietly and let him figure out what to do. Quit trying to tell him how to play. His imagination needs growth.

Simple. Find any military operation youtube video. Bring in your son. Turn the volume all the way off. Pretend your turning the video up.

Nah, if he wants to play military, just let him. Tell him to stay quiet so the enemy on the other side of the fence don't hear us...and stand guard in the backyard to watch for when they come. Letting him dig a nice foxhole is a big plus. Everytime he doesn't make his bunk in the mornings or police his cubicle, it's 25 push-ups. He'll like that. Don't ask me how I know!

Well, this is an easy one.

The first rule of being a good soldier is to learn to follow orders.

Teach him to be a sniper. Long, quite hours of waiting and waiting before engaging the enemy.

He could play superheroes. I suggest the Spleen.

Paul Reubens as The Spleen. Cursed by a gypsy, The Spleen can aim his super-powered flatulence to take out his targets, but he smells terrible at all times.

"It all started when I was just thirteen years of age. One day while walking with some friends I accidentally cut the cheese. Well, in my adolescent awkwardness, I blamed it on an old gypsy woman who happened to be passing by. Big mistake! The gypsy woman placed a curse upon my head. Because I had smelt it, she decreed that I would forevermore be... he who dealt it!"
