    Just dropped hubby off as he's gone fishing so on way home just popped into Asda for a quick mooch around the clothes.

    A woman with a 3-4 yr old was browsing and this boy started pulling at his mums clothes saying "come on come on " and then he shouted " come on you ba****d " !!!:eek::eek::eek:

    She didn't even flinch, tell him off or nothing but did as he asked and moved on!!!

    Isn't that terrible :nono:

    I was out shopping earlier and a kid was spitting in a shop, from the 1st floor on to the ground floor, he was about 5 :(

    It is awful! Though my son (4yo) calls me names...sausage and peacock lol....NO idea why on the last one!! But he doesn't know about swearing...though he did learn OMG...from staff at nursery...well i and my family are religious so that is NOT what I want him shouting. But I told him no and he doesn't say it now. So it's not too hard with a well bought up kid. When they get older I know it is harder. xx

    I washed my son's mouth out with soap at the age of about 5 when he used that word to me. He might not have known what it meant and was just using something he'd heard (not around home that's for certain) for the shock value but I won't tolerate swearing from children.
    As for spitting, kids see footballers and other sportsmen doing it all the time so of course they think it's fine :nonod:

    What i mean by that statement is you would not of heard children talk like that in the 70's or 80's, i certainly would never even think about swearing when i was younger, my parents brought me up well!! :D:D:D

    That is disgusting! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I certainly wouldnt allow my children to use such foul language or tell me what to do. what ever happened to kids being kids?? I have seen some hurrendous children about but if you look at how their parents are around them there is no surprise why they are how they are! :rolleyes::

    My hubbys cousin and her daughter are good examples of this!! His cousin goes around swearing and telling her daughter to hit people and swear at people and thinks its funny :mad: then she goes and gets the child diagnosed with aspergers.... :blink:

    My oldest is 14 & I still don't allow swearing from him or any of our children, it just sounds so nasty coming from children & there's no need for it

    It is horrible, her daughter tried telling me to "f*** off and die" when they came to visit last year (not my choice), i gave her a right telling off and to respect my house and rules and she didnt do it again after that!

    The thing is her parents think everything she does is hilarious :mad:

    I'm 25 and I'm still not allowed to swear in front of my parents. The odd one slips out every now and again but there's really no need for swearing. It's just never been tolerated and I don't ever remember pushing the rules.

    I went upstairs, was going to find the parent and let them know - said kid was being carried downstairs by a scowling-faced woman... and he spat again!! :eek:
    Next thing they're running riot round a carpet shop!

    Right many many years ago when I was in retail and when I was working on the kids section, we used to get really fed up of the naughty kids running about or playing on escalators etc...


    Anyway one of the staff ( an older lady) had a naughty trick.

    When we tidying up the clothes sometimes kids would be in the middle and cause clothes to fall etc...
    We used to tell them to come away but sometimes they never listened.

    So she used to tidy the rails and accidentally ( cough cough ;);)) get some of the kids hair and pull it with the clothes hangers as she was tidying the rails.:D:D

    The soon got out and didn't do it again.

    She was always so apologetic too :D

    I second that! where i live the kids language is vile, they swear at their parents and eachother and the behaviour is terrible and the parenting leaves alot to be desired!
    If my child swore at me in the street or anywhere for that matter no matter what age they were i would be pulling their pants down and tanning their backsides!

    I agree with the OP that this type of behaviour is shocking!

    Children are little mirrors of their environment. Whatever behaviour they have is learned from their parents, their peers and also from TV. How many children watch soaps which, for some strange reason, are on before the watershed? They see all the scheming, shouting, fighting and violence that goes on in them and they think that's how you're supposed to behave. In many cases this is backed up by their parent's behaviour who are living their own 'soap opera' lives.

    Under the age of 10 I don't think you can hold a child responsible for their behaviour as the are too young to truly understand the concept of right and wrong or be forward thinking enough to grasp the consequences of their actions. I blame the parents. There are no bad children, like there are no bad dogs, only poor care givers.

    Horrible isnt it? The kids are terrible round here, were waiting for a new fence and the kids use our front garden as a play ground so i told them to get off today and the lads sister stood right infront of the window pulling faces and mouthing off.... shes 8 but i could have slapper her face for her! I would have never done anything so disrespectful when i was younger. But imo they shouldbt be bloody out without an adult watching them.
