Yes, but not all children mature at the same age. I know when I was six my brothers and I played cops and robbers, and cowboys and indians and we "shot" eachother plenty of times. If someone told me not to, I wouldn't have understood why. I grew out of it when I was about eight. I'm not saying he shouldn't be taught that it isnt ok, but I think suspension should not have been the first choice of punishment in this situation.
