That moment when your daughter tells you a boy in class said something to her that you KNOW is offensive but you aren’t exactly sure what it means (but you want to know before you call the principal) so you look it up on the urban dictionary – because it will tell you what the kid really meant (not like the Webster dictionary that only has “safe for moms to read” definitions) and while on the site you decide to read the top 10 trending words (just so you know what is going on in the <not so sane> world) some of which you knew – and some that just make you wanna throw up – yeah…that moment. smh… — feeling sick.
I realize kids will be kids – but she says this kid talks to her in a vulgar manner all the time. It is NOT ok that he talks with her about what “69” means!! And it is NOT ok if he asks her if he can “corndog” her!!! I feel violated – honestly – she is only 11!
I realize she is going to hear things and I can’t protect her from everything. But if this boy sits next to her everyday and is saying these kinds of things to her – shouldn’t I raise a stink?! Some people think I’m over-reacting because she is MY daughter or because she is a girl. My oldest son is 13…almost 14 – and I would be just as pissed if it was happening to him. The honest difference is that it probably is happening all the time in his school but it is so prevalent that he just ignores it. My daughter is bothered by this and complains that it bothers her and that the teachers just tell her to sit down…
I’m so angry! Over-reacting or not?! Honest opinions welcome – I just need to hear others take on this….
