One of my kinders said the F bomb today. At first I thought I misheard him. But, then another one said it. They were also using their middle finger. I was furious and marched both of them straight to the principals office. I felt like washing his mouth out with soap!
When I was in kindergarten I don't think I even new any of those cuss words in English let alone a foreign language. And I don't remember using a cuss word until well into high school. Neither kid new what they were saying but they both knew it was a bad word and they shouldn't be saying it.
Of course this is the same kid who was kicked out of the school a year ago for cussing in Korean. Apparently he has learned the English equivalents. The educational system is working!
I blame his parents. He is a problem child in more ways than just foul language and he probably heard the word from a movie he watched. Why are his parents letting him watch a movie with that kind of language? Shouldn't they be watching Disney cartoons?
After the incident, I talked with the rest of the class to make sure they understood that it was a bad word and they were not allowed to use it. To my shock almost all knew the word, had a vague idea of what it meant, and some had even used the word (not in my class). What is this world coming to?
Do you cuss? When did you start?
