    Default Behaviour towards children...Is this what happens now?

    DS started school this year and as a result I have been hanging out with some school mums, having chats and social occasions. Before this I had the same friends for years and we have similar value systems etc.

    Some of these school mums tell their children to 'shut up' and 'go away.' and refer to their little girls as '*****es.' [bishes]

    I certainly might think these things but never would I say them to my children.

    What do you think? Are these acceptable things to say to a 5/6 year old?

    No... A bit trashy IMO.

    No way

    There are much nicer ways to communicate.

    Eh. I have said those things before. Like referring to my son as a little 'turd' when he's in fine form, I have also referred to DD as being a little cow or B - not in front of her of course but in front of friends.

    Yes I have also told them to go away when they are being annoying and I am trying to talk to someone.

    They are both happy well adjusted kids that know they are loved *shrug*

    No.
    I cringed the other day when I heard one of the school Mums tell her son that his Dad was going to "kick his @rse" when he got home.
    I know sometimes words slip out but DF and I take the position that if it's no ok for your child to say it then don't say it in front of them - be a role model.

    No. Not acceptable in my book. I threatened to kick my DP out of the house and end our relationship the other weekend if he continued to speak 'like that' to our children, after he told our DS1 to 'shut up'.

    Not okay.
    I wouldn't like someone to talk to me like that so I wouldn't talk like that to my child. It's a bad example imho.

    That makes me really sad. I hate when parents speak like that to their children, it's sounds so bitter and wrong.
