If any of you happened to see my Facebook status on Monday you know that I faced a motherhood dilemma.
Scenario; I had asked our kindergartener ½ a dozen times if he placed his lunch in his backpack and to which he replied, yes, each time. So, I drop the kiddos off at school. I get home and go to the fridge to get our 3-year-old a snack and guess what I see in the fridge? His lunch!! Mind you, I asked him like ½…Continue

Why do some kids turn out to be really abusive, bullying their own siblings and using profane language?
I guess its bcoz they've seen their parents using profanity, they get the liberty to do so. Well if so, that's the case with our kids as well.
