A few months ago while in the park with my daughter. I overheard a little boy use profanity with a male passer by. He called him a B$@#!, the man replied "How old are you and where are your parents?" The boy stated that he was 5 and continued to use profanity as his younger brother possibly no older than 2yrs. old witnessed and repeated what was said. The young boys mother practically congratulated him on speaking this way and cursed the poor man for even speaking on it.
It amazes me how some people teach their kids so much negativity as if that's cute. A 2yr. or 3 yr. old cursing is not cute nor funny. Yes they may be learning, but what they are learning it's not positive at all! Teaching a child to disrespect others and themselves in the process is only leading that child in the wrong direction. What are your takes on situations like these? Please be honest and respectful of others. Thanks!
