    Default 3 TROUBLESOME BOYS

    I was taking the long way around my apartment complex to take a

    walk,and I saw three boys playing on the swing set in the playground.(2

    of these boys-beat up/picked on my son when we first moved in)the other

    is another kid who is always getting into touble and has also picked on

    my son one time or another,I have always gotten along with these kids

    more or less on a one on one basis,except today.As I was approaching

    the swings,they all glanced my way,then when I was walking past

    them,one of them started singing"here comes Godzilla" then the other

    boy commented,hey she is trying to loose weight...she looks like a pig!

    I responded"you need to get some manners"they all stayed quiet for a

    moment then one of them said something and they all started laughing!

    It kind of hurt my feelings and I can imagine what is going to happen

    to my son if he rides the school bus with these kids! How would you


    guys handle these kids??They have no respect for adults anymore at all!

    Well.... welcome to today's child..... Not that there is any excuse for this, but my kids go to school with these type of kids on a daily basis. It bothers the more sensitive of my little ones. I have some kids who just walk away and don't care, one who gets into trouble talking back to these kids, and a couple who are really bothered by it.


    For my littlest, she has a vile boy in her class. I told her that she should first talk to the teacher / principal and then just put him on her "ignore list." He speaks badly because he wants her attention, good or bad. There are people like that. Our kids have to grasp this fact. I also encouraged her to pray for this little boy. If he is coming to school saying mean nasty things like this, we can only guess what is happening in his home. They are taught no respect and possibly, nobody respects them. I encourage my kids to maintain a respectful attitude (acknowledging that this is really, really hard), pray, and the biggest solution - WALK AWAY. (Doesn't work on the school bus, but if they are having a very bad time, they are encouraged to speak with the bus driver and sit as close to the front as they can.)

    If it were me I'd walk right up to them and give them a tongue lashing, no swearing but a lot of guilt trip. They'd likely be too shocked at the way I am willing to dish it out and have not much to say until they just walked off.

    Maria,

    I actually ache for the position your son is in, as well as you

    having to listen to the other boys' smart mouth. Our son came to us at 3

    y.o. & it took a few years for him to catch onto street jargon, even in

    elementary school, and then he never has understood most of it, nor the

    bullies in school. We couldn't stand by & watch him suffer abuse by other

    kids. The public school could only do so much; no real discipline or

    separation from the other boys. My son only had a few friends because he

    had never been in social situations before. Finally we had to gather

    everything financially & emotionally & place him into a private school.

    Today my son is in college & still thanks us for taking him out of

    the public school. I'd love to support the public school system but it

    didn't work for this one particular kid of ours.

    Please consider all options, even moving, before you send your son

    on a school bus or into a classroom with bullies. The emotional pain never

    leaves the one being bullied.

    Best of luck,

    ~ Rustey

    I have a similar problem I am a propery manager of a complex and they call me names and talk back to me all the time. I talk to the parents and its like talking to a brick wall so I know how you feel.


    I wish I could tell you something to make it better but if the parents do nothing what can you do? I have gone as far as to get the piloce involed and that doesnt help but I tell you what when I send that letter to the parents that they will get evicted if the problems persist it settles down for a short time anyway.


    good luck with your issue I hope it turns out for you

    Maria -- As a foster mom who currently has four boys, two of whom have po*p for

    brains (sorry, but that's the truth), these kids really have no bringing up and

    no social conscience. I'm not sure what your answer is, but don't get your

    feelings hurt over it. I am loved by most of my foster kids and even by my own

    7 grown kids and their friends (countless hungry, dirty kids, despite the fact

    that we lived in an "affluent" community) because I am kind to everyone, kids

    especially, but take it from me, some kids are really messed up and have no

    moral code. It has nothing to do with you personally. Don't take their

    garbage, though. If you need to say something to them, get their parents' names

    and phone numbers from them, and let them know in no uncertain terms that you

    won't take their baloney. Some kids just need to be shown that their behaviors

    won't be tolerated (and shouldn't have to be). I'm sorry to say this, but as a

    "professional mom", it's really the truth.

    Mary Beth (please email me off list if you want to discuss this further)

    My experience has been that kids who act this way have parents that don't

    correct the behavior. Going to the parents usually will cause a war between you

    and them. The school system is no help either.The bus ride can be hell on earth

    for a child that has to endure bullies.

    My two oldest children learned to stand up to the bullies and draw a line in

    the sand .Leave me alone and I'll leave you alone. Cross this line and I'll be

    the one kicking your tale.Today one of my adult children is a police officer. I

    have no regrets for teaching him to not tolerate abuse.

    My three youngest children have all been homeschooled. The older I get get,

    the less I want to deal with that kind of junk.
