My son Jonathan just started middle school and wouldn’t you know it? Two weeks after the school year began and a month after he joined his new tween tackle football team, Jonathan casually called his sister an X-Rated word to get her to stop whining about something. In front of my face, he told his sister Elena to stop being the slang word for a woman’s sexual organ. Yep, THAT word!
“Where did you get that word!!!?”, I asked him.
“Oh, it’s just something we say on the football team. I just said that to her because Elena was whining again.”
I was ticked and disturbed.
“Don’t you EVER use a bad word to talk about your sister or anybody else like that again,” I warned him.
It was in that instance of Jonathan uttering that Level 3 foul word (more…)
