    I say curse words, and so do a lot of people...however, if someone makes me angry, my first reaction isn't to call them a 'stupid mother****er '. .. but apparently by today's standards, that's not a big deal? Really?

    I'm sorry, but that's what I'm talking about when I say disrespectful...and Yes...I'm fully aware someone can be disrespectful without cursing...I'm not talking about absolutes here.

    Generally speaking...is it the norm to just treat many in a disrespectful manner or is it a growing issue??
    I don't think so, I always say yes ma'am, and sir at grocery stores, drive thru's, etc, and most of my friends do too. I don't think disrespect is a growing problem

    Try this: "Do you realize that what came out of your mouth was totally unacceptable and none of my business? How would your partner feel about that?"

    Ok - maybe not that last part because my husband doesn't give a ****. LOL But a lot of people do care.

    Region - there's a huge difference between verbal respect in the south VS the north and east . . . the south - you say it and don't even think about it. Where i grew up - if I called my mom 'Ma'am' . . .she's accuse me of sassing her with an attitude.

    I would but, in my work/job relationships I tend to avoid those conflicts.
    I generally try to change the subject.

    But yea it's weird and ****ed up to me.

Although they will try to get away with it, there are very clear and very swift consequences. My children do not swear at me, teachers or other adults. However, some of their friends DO and it seems that either because of lack of parental guidance or laxa-daisy enforcement by school officials country wide - it appears at least, to be an epidemic of sorts.

    Thoughts?
    It's pretty bad where I live.

    Kids are obnoxious especially when they run in packs
    I was reading an article in the BBC about feral children in the UK and they weren't referring to mowgli so maybe they were noticing similar trends as well.

    Found the article: BBC News - Many adults think children are 'feral', survey finds
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Interesting article:

    The children's charity says the research suggests society holds a negative view towards children despite the majority being well behaved.

    The charity said many young people who end up in custody come from difficult backgrounds so, in order to prevent trouble, society first had to deal with their problems.

    Chief executive Anne Marie Carrie said: "What hope is there for childhood in the UK today if this is how adults think?

    "We seem to have forgotten the fact that most children are well behaved and instead we are unquestionably accepting a stereotype of young people as criminal and revolting.

    "We aren't asking people to put up with yobbish behaviour, but we do need to change our attitudes towards troubled children."
    People believing it doesn't make it true.
