Don't you absolutely HATE it when...

You hear a mommy cussing at their child. My SIL talks to her children so terribly. She tells them to shut the F up. Calls them little Mother F'ers. Calls them bastards, calls them stupid, idiots, etc., etc. It makes me sick to my stomach. I haven't seen her in over a year because of her problems...

  • Wow, that's awful! I am ashamed to say that sometimes I yell too much, but I never cuss at my kiddos or call them names. My daughter and I butt heads a lot, especially as she is getting older, and I learned a long time ago that a time out works wonders for me. Many times I have shut myself in my room and screamed into a pillow! I think sometimes when we get stressed out we forget that words can damage as much as physicality can, and the words can never be taken back. I'm sorry for your nephews.

  • And then they wonder why their kids use that type of language and get into trouble.

  • Yikes. I wouldn't want to be around that. That is emotional abuse. Does she know that?

  • I have told her in the past how awful that must make her kids feel, and how can you talk to them that way?? I have actually gotten to the point in the past where I have told her "I'm gonna take the kids for the day!" I feel awful for my nephews, but nobody seems to speak to her about it!! She had a rough childhood, so that is what she writes it off as!!! I say "no excuse" She moved away a couple years ago. I saw her last about a year ago, when she visited with my nephews and she still had not changed. So I decided to not visit, or have her visit anymore, because I do not want that around my DD! But I just thought about it today, because I heard another mom talking to her child that way when I was out earlier!!

  • I have a friend who's like that. Interestingly enough she has such a good front and is a likeable person and nobody knows what she says to her kids. I feel bad for them.

  • Report her to child protective services.

  • I think its sad... I am having problems controlling my temper because of my hormones right now (pregnant) but I would never verbally abuse my children (or physically either.)

  • I do not understand how a mom could do such a thing. My children are my treasures! I treat them as the precious people they are.

    Oh, I can get upset with them, but they are still my innocent babies.

  • and you just now thought of her? I'm sure she's pleased she is pressed into your memory. Did you think the call cps on the witch? That's abuse if you don't recognize it and you just walked away and let her do it. You are as bad as she is if not worse bc you didn't do anything to help those poor children. Shame on you
