I have a 13yo step daughter who is in a big hurry to grow up. Her biomom is not the best influence and we often struggle with what is appropriate behavior. for the last year or so the language she uses to post on myspace and facebook is appalling to me. I know her mother sees it and doesn't seem to have a problem. Her postings are peppered with the b word and ho. Her current screen hame contains the word ho. Now personally, I don't think nice girls do things like that. When my kids were 13 I wouldn't tolerate things like that but stuff is different for my husband and his ex. He is tired of always being the bad guy so has stopped lecturing on appropriate behavior.
I don't know, my youngest is 18 so maybe I'm just old fashioned. I really don't feel that nice girls put stuff on myspace talking about getting drunk, going to parties and using the b word to describe herself and her friends and calling herself and her friends a ho.
She is not allowed to drink at home at all. Her mother allows her to drink at her house and parties that they go to. Mom thinks it's ok to let them drink as long as she is getting drunk too.
Anyway, my question is, do soon to be 8th graders all talk like that? Maybe I'm just getting bent out of shape over nothing. Maybe they all say stuff like hey bitches, lets all go get drunk and be hos. We also live in a very rural town, not a big city. Most of the kids I know would say a bitch is a female dog and a hoe is something you weed with.
