so the neighbor that i post about sometimes with the 5 kids, well one of her daughters turned 11 in may and started middle school this year. up until then, she was a pretty decent kid, still tried to talk and act like an adult but she was sweet atleast and still had some of her innocence. now she is talking 'ghetto' all the time. she'll say "what had happened was" and she was telling me yesterday that some girls were going to fight her best friend & she was going to hurt them, but that she's a nice person until someone makes her mad and then "her bad side 'gon come out", and there was a group of boys playing outside last night too and they put a lizard on her and she was screaming "what the fuck is that, get that shit off me" and she looked over at me, knowing my kids were outside and said with a shit eating grin on her face "my bad". i just had to roll my eyes. just a few months ago she was polite and respectful and now she thinks she's a little bad ass wannabe gangster. she was also telling me how she wants to get suspended and she's going to a new school & she'll probably be suspended in the first week.
did middle school change your kids like this too? i don't think i can tolerate my kids talking like they're ignorant on purpose.

Wow, that's a fast transformation. I hope to heck it's not normal. My DS is in 5th and will head off to middle school next year.
How involved are her parents? I guess I don't pay good enough attention in here.
