6packofun Posted December 3, 2011 Share Posted December 3, 2011 What I usually do, if it's my younger children with me, is walk by while covering a kiddo's ears and say, "Oh ouch, LA LA LA LA LA...small children coming through!" in a lighthearted way that shows the teens (or adults) that I care what's being said but that I'm not going to *confront*. It's just a reminder that they need to pay attention to others. If they do, great. If not, the kids get a lesson in lack of creativity and appropriateness in speech. :D I've had lots of sheepish apologies with this method. lol Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
