Since my girls started pre-K I have noticed so much unusual behaviour and use of words that we do not use in our house. The words \" I don\'t like you and I hate you\" pop up frequently now between themselves and classmates. I try and explain to them that at times their feelings may get hurt but using such harsh words as \"Hate\" is not nice and could hurt the other persons feelings. I know that they will pick up and learn things from other kids that I find unacceptable and it\'s a part of life as we cannot be their each minute to monitor what is being said. I try my best to explain these things to them and hope that they understand me. I tell them to settle things with words and to try and not hurt the other persons feelings but they come back to me and say \"Well they said this and they said that to me\" , it seems like a constant battle as they are being pulled in two directions and what seems acceptable on the playground is not acceptable in my home. Do other parents experience this and how do you guys cope with all the explanations?
