    chickensducks&agoose Chillin' With My Peeps

    my 7 year old son came home with a new three letter word ending in X... and starting with S. He had a vague idea of what it meant, and since I believe in honesty (but not full disclosure necessarily), i explained the basics, telling him it is for married grown ups only, who are ready to start a family (since this is my preference for my own children). I told him to not tell this to the other kids, since their parents might not be ready to explain it to their kids, since it's really not kids' business anyway. So... he went to school, and apparently informed ALL the kids during reading (where was the teacher?!?)... i heard this from a parent of a first grade girl, who called me and when I answered, she said "Your son's a (removed by staff)!" and then proceeded to explain how upset she is at me for telling him, and at him for telling her daughter, and I am furious at my son for not following my direct order, and I told him that I am really disappointed that I can't trust him to do the things I tell him to... and that he's in big trouble with me, and with the parents of the other kids, and with his teacher too... which he is. so he's crying (loudly), and I am still so mad. and really think that maybe homeschooling might be our new thing...

    I'm pretty sure the conversation would not have proceeded well after that first volley fired by the other party.

    I don't even KNOW this lady! I would recognize her kid, but really? I'm mad because I trusted him to NOT tell everyone... not because he told everyone... I understand being mad, since I was a little mad when I heard that someone had told DS in the first place... but really? Nasty phone calls? ugh. i remember, when I was a kid, asking my parents... and they furnished me with a book full of naked, rotund, HAIRY people... i am permanently scarred.

    I'd say a woman who calls a 7 year old boy a *edited* is the one with the problem....
