Does your husband/So belch & fart in front of the kids?

My DH does this in front of my daughter and they laugh about it. It make me so mad because I told him that she is a little girl and needs to act like a lady! Why are men so stupid?

  • Why not? It's all a part of a healthy, properly functioning body & digestive system. I do it too. My kids all burp, fart, laugh, talk about it, and then say excuse me. As long as they excuse themselves after they let one rip, I couldn't care less!

  • I don't realy care if he lets his bodily functions happen, but I ask him to say excuse me when he is around the kids. There is a thing called manners, and even if he does those things it doesn't give him a reason to be rude.

  • LOL. I do that in front of my kids. I say excuse me and I don't do it in public places, but it's natural.

  • Of course... of course I do too...

    We're not hung up on being "ladylike" or anything.

  • YES! My DH does that in front of all of us. The boys all get into a contest as to who can fart in whose face first. It's gross to me. For me having gas and being pregnant are synonymous. I don't fart in front of them. I do leave the room and go to the bathroom. I agree it's natural. It's ok for the guys to do it but not me. I always leave the room.

  • a lady should act like a lady! It's about self respect I still manage to never belch or etc in front of my husband it's not about being lady like it's about being freaking classy!
