did you ever hear a parent tell a kid they're stupid...

and the tone was just mean and angry, like they really meant it? I don't like that at all. It makes me sad.

  • No there is no time and place for that but in public my mom used to do it and the kid is not going to remember anything else that happened just that the parent called them stupid.

  • I have heard parents downsize their children all to often. It is a very sad situation. When people are not comfortable with themselves they seek out people who they can do that too and get away with it. Its disgusting...

  • A parent is the LAST person who should tell a kid they're stupid, because their words carry so much weight. It's a horrible, HORRIBLE thing to say to a child!

  • Yes my mother told me every day I was stupid and some other words I could not repeat I see it and even though it makes me look crazy I say to the parent isn't there a time and place for that.
