Scolding Vulgarities among the boys during soccer

Postby lucern » Wed Oct 22, 2014 9:28 am

My son told me that boys are scolding all kinds of vulgarities during soccer game. He even came home and ask me the meaning of some hokkien words!
Is this common among your child's school mates?

What will you do?

Any Parent has encountered this problem?

Recently my son told me that his classmates are scolding him vulgaritues so he went to report to the form teacher and he just ignored my child

Should I call the teacher to inform and clarify ? Or do I accept this as a normal behavior of children playing soccer?

I've experienced this problem too. What I told my child is that he cannot control what other people do but he can control his own actions so as far as behaviours go, I dont ever want to see him using such crude languages. As for the abuse from the classmates, I told him to ignore these classmates and proceeded to call up the form teacher to make sure something is being done about such a situation.

Just my $0.02

Hi there:)

What I suggest is that parents could actually explain what those vulgarities really mean and how degrading it actually is when used in speech. I feel that children, especially teenagers, when being restricted on activity, will eventually want to try it out even more. That is just the rebellious nature of teenagers that most will experience. Furthermore, vulgarities is being used so much in today's society, in television shows, songs or everyday life, so much so that such vulgarities has lost its true meaning and significance. It is likely that children nowadays have no idea what the vulgarities they are saying mean and I feel that being open and honest with them, and showing that vulgarities used in most contexts are actually nonsensical and make absolutely no sense whatsoever. Hope this post helps:)

Cheers and have a great day:)
