Hello!

I live across the road from a primary school & pick up & drop off time is just a drama. My girls are only 3 & 9 months so don’t go there yet. I watch & hear the parents in the morning & afternoon & sometimes can’t believe what I’m hearing. Swearing, cursing & yelling at each other all while the kids are in the car. They beep their horns & tell each other to get f##ked & everything. It’s a disgrace that parents can act like this ibfront of their children. I always think to myself that all these kids will think it’s okay to have filthy mouths & bad attitudes when they’re older. This generation needs to change their ways or we are going to have a lot more to worry about with kids than we do now.

  • I agree. Most parents make school pick up so stressful by their behaviour. When they should be concentrating on their children. I too am horrified by the behaviour going on at the school gates

  • Parents are role models, so it is sad. :(

  • oh i don’t see too much of this. i have seen a guy abusing a lesbian couple and i have seen mums who jumped in to defend them. I could see that they told him good! I just said to him that there are kids around and this wasn’t the place to act the way that he was.

  • That’s terrible. I hope I don’t have to face that when my daughter goes to school.
    Do you think it might be worth phoning the school and telling them what’s going on?

  • I’ve never seen this type of behavior before, whilst my kids aren’t in school yet I very often have to collect my friends children from school. I hope I never have to experience this too.

  • I haven’t seen any behaviour like that at our school but I have seen parents behaving badly at shopping centres and kids sporting events.

  • Never really heard this type of thing going on when my children were at school but I must admit I have heard some foul mouthed parents in the supermarket and yes I do think if the children are exposed to this disgusting language there is no wonder the children swear.
    And I agree many need to take a chill pill and change their ways for the better, for their children and future children but alas I can not see this happening, so I am pinning my brighter future on the lovely folk out there and yes they do exist and hope they massively overtake the bad.

  • I wouldn’t dare do this at school drop off .These other parents are part of the school community & at some point you will face these people in the school yard or school event. I just swear at the drivers on the way to school-lol!!


    • You are totally right. At some stage you’re bound to come across them, and I do agree there are some dangerous folk out there on the road on the way to and from school.

  • Wow, totally agree – what sort of message is it sending their children if the parents are ok – that it’s ok to swear and curse and bully and bip at people from your car and be pushy when you don’t get your own way rather than being patient and polite. There is the morning rush at my son’s school, but thankfully I haven’t seen any of this sort of behaviour. Just the occasional bip or two.

  • I’m relieved to say I’ve never seen this at our primary school – the worst I’ve seen is the After School Care people, who keep parking their mini bus in a place the school has repeatedly asked them NOT to, because it blocks both a driveway and the path between school and the main parking areas. But parents are generally pretty nice even despite the chaos and competition for spots.

  • It is sad when that is the example being set

  • this is a problem that has been going on for as long as I remember and I would wait with friends until they got picked up than walk home and I am talking 43 years ago. So don’t count all the kids out just yet as some do turn out to do people proud no matter what they heard or was raised around.

  • Classy! Outside schools is a nightmare in any area, when it comes to traffic….that’s not counting the foul language from parents. And they wonder where kids get it from…
