Another mother (which makes me feel like she's always TRYING to find a reason for her kids not to play with mine) asked me the other day if I let my kids curse. I told her no. Told her how they reprimand me for saying "stupid" since they think its also a bad word.
She then tells me that she doesn't WANT to start drama, but if she were in my shoes she'd want to know. Followed by telling me that my 8 year old is a bad influence on her 12 year old b/c she told her what some other girl said.
I wasn't letting the "drama" get to me. Told her thanks for letting me know and I moved on. I confront my daughter who knows bad words are not acceptable. My 8 year old tells me that she repeated what some other "friend" called her 12 yr old friend. Said she called her a bi... (she didn't finish the word, didn't spell it out to it's entirety) as she knows she's not suppose to say bad words. She wanted her friend to know what the other "friend" kept calling her behind her back.
Honestly, my child didn't SAY a bad word...she just wanted her friend to know what was being said behind her back. So, I see no need to punish my child. This mom messages me ans asks if I put soap in her mouth and how she's not sure if her kids could be around such language... -rolls eyes-
Would you see a need to punish the 8 year old? Would you think its enough reason to let the kids NOT be friends over such idiotic drama? I put up with it so my kids could have friends...but this mom is trying to find ANY reason for the kids to stop being friends. Opinions needed...
