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.

Subject: Budget101.com : 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!
