Re: bad words continued


Date: Sun Mar 17 2002 - 14:56:55 PST

When I first started in elementary, I was amazed at how much students told
each other to shut up or called each other stupid among other words. I'm
sure it's a television influence. I told them those words were not allowed
in my room because I found them offensive. Being polite and respectful to
each other is important. The kids I have now I've had since kindergarten and
nobody says rude words to each other. (At least not while they're with me!)
It's amazing how good manners has just disappeared in modern life. I
couldn't imagine telling one of my friends to shut up when I was a kid. I
would have been looking for a new friend. Janet
