    HI all
    So need a little advice.

    If you heard on of you friends partners calling their child a "Little s*** of a C***
    would you tell your friend knowing that her and her partners relationship is on the rocks? (FYI me and her partner don't get along in the slightest)

    Yeah I probably would… it sounds like their partner is perhaps not a very nice person so there's a good reason why their relationship is on the rocks?
    Though you'd have to be prepared to be blamed for any fallout which might not be good for your relationship with your friend in the long run :-/

    Yes I would tell the parent. That's horribly nasty imo...

    Who talks about anyone like that? Especially a child!

    Without a doubt. Wouldn't give it a second thought. In fact I'd tell the moron straight up to stop calling his child (or any child) those vile things!

    I would tell my friend, though it would not surprise me if she's already heard him use this kind of language regarding her children before.

    He sounds like a creep.

    Yep. Definitely tell her. I was thinking maybe if he was just venting to another adult and other kids hadn't heard it, maybe let it slide once, especially given the fact that you don't get on ans their relationship isn't going well. But no child should be called names, especially by their parents.
