why be rude?

The other day I posted a thing for my kids on the hobbies and crafts section. My children would like to send friendship bracelets to needy children just to brighten their day and possible pen pals. I thought it was a great idea until some one was rude saying children wont care about a bracelet made of string. Geez I dont have money to send to them I can barely pay my own bills. So my question is do children really dont care? My children were thinking of others and they would like to do it.

  • Let them do it. I think its a good idea. Kids will think its so fun to get something new and made. My daughter came home with a new braclet that a lady at church made her and never wanted to take it off. Let them do it.. !

    And to the person and said that kids wont like it.. THEY CAN SHUT THE F*^K UP!

  • That is an awesome idea, my kids wear stuff they make for each other all the time, whoever said that doesn't have a clue, that is great your kids want to contribute. Good job Mom.

  • Of course the children will care, whoever said this to you is obviously just being mean for the sake of it. Kids have a completely different understanding of emotion than adults, theyre a lot more sensitive and less biased, so the tiniest gesture can be very touching, I remember how emotional I was when I was a kid lol! They dont have the same suspisions or apprehensions about kind gestures, theyve not been through the things we've been through so theyre more receptive to these things. I think that your friendship bracelet idea is very sweet and any child will see that and be grateful. Never mind what some mean person says! xx

  • I think it's a wonderful idea. The only kids who wouldn't care are kids that are probably money oriented. My daughter who was 6 at the time, made valentines day cards for every one of the 101 residents in the nursing home I worked in. I think it's good to teach kids about giving. I really don't think that the needy kids would not want the bracelets.

  • I think its wonderful that you child would want to do that! I think some people are so miserable that they are only happy when they put others down!

  • Well I have kids and grandkids of all ages, they all love those string braclets, and the plastic ones. They also love making them and giving them to friends and me! I think you had a wonderful idea!
