  • I'd say it's more about the mom. Kids at that age don't know what sluts are, but they do know it's a disrespectful term. Ditto for flipping someone off. My son tried out the word the other day and I asked him if he knew what it meant, to which he said no, he didn't. He was all blushes when I told him. Haven't heard the word since.

    It sounds more like the mom isn't crazy about you and that the resulting behavior is an extension of that. Chances are mom has called you a slut behind closed doors and her kids are being used as a way of passing the message on to you by using a messenger that you can't retaliate against.

    They are just pawns in the larger disagreement between the adults.

  • If mom's letting them run wild, then call CPS on her ass. That is totally disrespectful and you should not have to put up with it.

  • I agree. It sounds like the kids are just being a product of their environment. If the parents act that way and talk that way then their children are going to think that there is nothing wrong with it.

    I would tell your children to ignore them and to not talk to them.

    Good Luck

  • Well, children do learn from home, so you know where they get their attitudes from. Do you have a landlord that you can report this too? Harassment isn't too be tolerated anywhere. The landlord will have to follow up and if/she gets too many complaints, then something has to be done. Take pictures to prove your point.

  • The question should be what is up with the parents. Kids are a reflection of mom and dad many times. The kids are acting out what they see each day.
