Hooker in Training? - What In The World Are You Teaching Your Child?

7:30 AM


Above is an actual note that I caught my oldest son trying to throw away last night. Apparently a little girl had given it to him shortly before school ended and he had put it there to throw away later because he knew it was inappropriate, but forgot. For the record, after a threat of homeschool if I every catch him writing something inappropriate at school, we discussed why this was not okay.

When I read it I could hardly believe my eyes. I mean, I am not delusional. I know kids will grow up and talking about things is only natural as they do, but this little girl is offering her mini sized lady lumps up for a snack. A snack people! A freaking bag of Cheetos! Goodness, at least teach your kid to hold out for a Happy Meal.

Let this be a lesson to all you parents. Keep a closer tab on what your child is doing, saying and especially watching or there is going to be a new form of payment accepted at the grocery store in the future.

  1. That's bad, but not quite as bad as what I read the first time. I thought it said "shack" not "snack".

  3. Thanks for adding a little humor to the situation Annie. So goes the way of fourth grader's handwriting.

  5. It is not a good thing, there is a possibility to consider here too that happened when my kids were in grade school... there was a girl willing to trade things she shouldn't... for food... turned out.. she wasn't getting any food at home... it wasn't that she was wanting to do things.. but she was hungry... and sad as what she was doing was, to me it is sadder that there were children willing to accept this in trade. I am sure you did but if not be sure to give your son lots of kuddos for not accepting.. and... maybe give the school a call.. no matter the situation someone should look into it further I would think

  6. I have no words. Someone needs to be teaching that child self worth among other things.

  7. I so dread my son getting older... also glad I have a son. I know every generation probably says this, but "what has our world come to????"

  8. Just a question- do you give the boys a really good snack on Tuesday or is the kid on a schedule and the other days were filled?

    Seriously I would ask him which girl and get the school involved if she is offering things so easily to your son she has been doing this for awhile and it might be a common practice at the school- least it would get it out in the open and parents could speak to their kids about how inappropriate it is.

  9. lol Nope, no special snacks on Tuesday, they are really boring snacks actually. An apple, cheese and crackers, peanut butter crackers etc.

    I did ask him who it is and will definitely be discussing it with someone at the school. My 1st grader was suspended last year for a day because he patted a girl on the butt at PE like he sees done in sports with his brothers, I can't imagine this would be tolerated.

  10. Woooooooooow that's crazy!! It doesn't really surprise me though. I taught 5th grade for 4 years and couldn't believe the stuff they were talking about & saying to one another =( Very sad!!

  11. Wow. That is really scary! Sounds Like The Girls Parents need to teach their daughter a little better.

  13. I am not going to be able to handle this age! Or any of the ages really....I think I should build them a nice closet so I can lock them in it! Yikes!!

  14. The recession effects us all I suppose... Don't be too scared though, things like this have and will happen in every generation. Judge your own child on his ability to handle these situations, rather than a potentially impoverished little girl who clearly isn't being nurtured appropriately at home. We can't help everyone, nor should we judge others for doing what they have to do to eat.. Obviously if her parents were giving her enough food this wouldn't be an issue. It's a trickle down effect, and your children are at the bottom of the hill they've been rolling the shit down.

  15. I do respect your opinion Matt. I agree that things of this nature are becoming more and more prevalent with each passing generation. However, in this particular case, I know the little girl and also know that she is not impoverished. Anyone who reads my blog regularly knows that I always try to be non-judgemental to others, but if your child is writing notes like this or knows to call her body parts those words, then you may need to keep an eye on them. Thanks again for stopping by!

  16. Yeeeaahhhhh. I'd definitely be calling the school. This is exactly why we have had conversations with our oldest, who will be in 5th grade in the fall, about how the school lunch is sometimes the only meal kids get. There have been a couple times he's asked me to send an extra snack for a friend because they didn't have one. It makes me sad what some kids have learned at such young ages.

  17. Like bloggers, this girl needs to learn her worth.... A snack?? Poor kid. I wonder where she's learning this behaviour though...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah -- I would DEFINITELY call the school about this. WOW.

  19. Wow, I can only imagine how mad you were when you found this note. Most of the time it's not our kids that we have to worry about but others. You wonder what this little girl has been taught at home or if there is abuse in her house.

  20. I don't think you should put all the blame on the girl, it sounds as if your son has done this sort of thing before... and will again regardless of your homeschool threat.
    All men love tt's, even "innocent" 4th graders.

  21. First of all Kim, my son did absolutely nothing other than bring the note home. He did not trade a girl Cheetos for anything nor would he. In fact, my son is now in 6th grade, has been on honor roll all year and has had absolutely no behavior problems. So, obviously, the "threat" of home school did work.

    Secondly, I did not place the blame on the child alone, I placed it on the parenting as well. Thank-you so much for stopping by to judge me and my parenting on my own site though. Have a wonderful day.
