Why are there soo many ppl out there with NOTHING nice to say?

I was looking through some recipes, and came across SO many ignorant mean spirited comments to the OP's. It really gets you thinking, don't mom's teach the whole, " If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all!" anymore? Sheesh!!
I was taught that, was anyone else taught that? Are any of you teaching that to your kids?

  • I think some ppl take freedom of speech to the extreme. I do want my kids to have an opinion, but they need to know when it's time to keep things to themselves.

  • I try to just ignore those rude comments. Yes I teach my kids the same thing. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. Sometimes I say that so much I feel I should say it in my sleep. Lol

  • @ twinmama - I like the way you put it... and agree... I love that my DD is outspoken... but I am def. going to teach her that you have to be polite, and you can't go around just spreading negativity!!

  • I make my kids not talk if they are being mean. I make everyone in the house follow the rule including my husband. I would rather him/them not talk to me then say something mean.
