I heard a woman yell at her child at the park, she swore at her maybe 3 year old dd. She told her to 'get her ass over to here and pick up this shit' i gave her a look like she was from another planet. She looked at me and simple said, 'shes 3 she doesnt know what it means' and walked away. not only did her dd hear her swear but so did the other young children playing at the park.
I was ticked off. what would you have done?
I have slipped up and said dammit at times but to swear in that manner... I just didnt think it was called for.
am I old school??

I have done the dammit thing but that kinda thing infuriates me too. I actually blessed out my boss for cussing her then 4 y/o grand daughter. I had done it before I realized it. She got mad at me at first and told me it was none of my business I told her I was just giving her grand daughter a voice. She came to tell me a few months later she respected me more for sticking up for a child who couldn't stand up for herself and has since stopped or censored her mouth in front of her grand daughter. I would have brought to her attention that there were other children there and she should leave her potty mouth at home.

I have never sworn at my child because I feel that it is very inappropriate. I have accidentally sworn around my child though, and that's not good either.

Have you ever read Kelle Hampton's blog about having a baby with down syndrome?
