Even when it comes to Easter I have an addiction to online window shopping. The bright & pastel colors, the cute designs in everything and the reminder that Spring is here. Online shopping, browsing and filling up my wish list basket with tons of stuff has always been a guilty pleasure of mine as I am sure it is for a number of you as well. It's just a fun way to relax and see what's new, old & on sale.

While perusing through Glossyblondes blog I ran across a post that she did that was this super cute quiz called the Blogmopolitan quiz which she got from the blog Two Thirds Hazel. I love doing the quizzes that come in magazines just for grins & giggles so I totally had to give this one a go. Turns out that there are actually two of these quizzes that Erin (Two Thirds Hazel) made and here is the first one.

What Is Wrong With Kid's These Days?

Seriously. What is wrong with a majority of the kids these days? First off, while E & I were at one park about 2 weeks ago playing on the jungle gym as normal, one of the much older kids that was milling around the swings was standing there cursing. He had to of been in junior high but even when I was that age I didn't talk like a drunken sailor. I probably didn't adapt that kind of language into my vocabulary until well into my high school years and even then I didn't talk that way around little kids nor around my parents at the time. I know that it's super common for these kids to be hearing this kind of language all over the tv & movies and at home or around friends, I know that I don't exactly put a cork in it myself, but what I think is the key factor in all of this is teaching kids about swear words and how they can affect people and if you are going to say them then how to use them properly and when not to. Like at your parents, teachers and around little kids. Is there ever a good age for kids to swear? I really doubt it but I think there is a good age to learn about the cause & affect of them. I should add that this kid was at least polite enough to apologize to me when he saw E standing there so he did have some manners at least.
