Kids are so fucking blunt like...how do they get away with that especially if they're mean...

A few years ago a kid asked me if I have a boyfriend and I said no and he said "Is it because ur ugly and fat and only play video games all day?"

Like, damn??

Not even I was that blunt when I was younger.




freaking hilarious

I'm really blunt and honest also, it's why I'm quiet and shy, got into too much trouble. Now I don't say anything mean cuz I just keep thinking positively so it's easier.

lol Ikr

I'm blunt, but more accidentally more so than intentionally blunt tbh. I'm also somewhat quiet & shy but if you give me the chance and I feel comfortable enough around you, I'm a little loud.

It's because they are innocent they don't yet understand that words hurt until they have someone say the same things to them.

I actually prefer their bluntness and honesty. I find it pretty hilarious and breath of fresh air from time to time. I have a 5 year old niece who is very articulate and is quick to tell things like it is. Eventually she'll learn some tact around others but I never want her to lose her bluntness and honesty around me especially if she is talking about me. I can take the criticism.

I was a blunt and rude little shit too and my parents disciplined us plenty. I eventually learned as I got older (even if it was subconsciously) to keep quiet and shy then lo and behold, suddenly I was making actual friends! I was still learning to mince my words though so I did get in the occasion fight with them over my harsh word choices and rather stupid opinions. :lol:

Most of it is just youth not having a filter and children tend to think pretty black and white until they learn all the shades in between. If the child doesn't grow out of it once they've hit the age where tact and social etiquette should have already registered than that's when I start suspecting shitty upbringing.

Kids are mean. Especially in middle school. I just hope that eventually they'll put that bluntness to better uses other than criticizing others and dragging them down.

I don't think kids are more blunt on the whole (unless I'm missing something?), as I haven't seen that much of that kind of behavior on the whole from a large amount of kids. That kid just seemed to be being rude, and it's likely a learned behavior from his parents. They probably taught him to look down on people who aren't perfect and to mock them, or do so themselves all the time. Likely the second, if I had to guess.
I also remember from when I was a kid that they were always kind of jerks.. not usually to adults, but to other kids. They were horrible. D:. Maybe because of the lack of discipline (teachers can't even give kids time out anymore, and spanking kids is illegal, so far as I know) they feel they can get away with treating the adults like they do their peers?

Some kids just aren't too sharp.

I mean that can't be true because one boy had a crush on me for a while & I wasn't that ugly or fat :///

I would change the title to thread Why Are Kids So Rude.-Bottom line some kids don't have any manners nobody was parenting them while growing up. I remember telling my son to ask to leave the table at dinner. Sounds simple and easy took me 4 months telling him over and over but he does now. My favorite thing is when we go to someone elses house he asks to be excuse at table even if those kids don't and sometimes he gets made fun but a parent will always yes you may and thanks for asking. Took maybe 5 months for him to not interrupt a conversation he waits and then asks a question kids have some instincts like animals but also shine when they receive lots of love and attention. Parenting is done best in my humble opinion by being present when your child is around.

Yeah I agree. I mean, in my case it was sorta both. Basically told me I was a hermit & I admit I kinda was at the time lmao

Yeah, I feel kids being little shitheads has to do with parenting. I'm pretty sure other parents weren't doing what you were doing for your kid with about asking to leave the dinner table if they ended up rude & shitty.
My mother didn't teach me in being polite besides like saying please & thank you, at least early on. I left the table whenever without asking, even played my gameboy sometimes, and chewed with my mouth open lol.
That didn't stop completely til I was like 11 or 12 though. I wasn't ever mean or rude on purpose though I swear.
I didn't receive much love/affection though for a while, might be due to not having a father around & mother barely around or ever there for emotional support.
But I feel if the kid has that, they'll most likely be nice, happy & polite kids too.

I do overall agree with you though. Especially the parent(s) are always present around their child.

Why are kids so blunt?

>Because they haven't been beaten enough.

Seriously though, kids are mean creatures, as are many adults. Just throw it back at them if you're immature or rebuke them if you're mature, and hopefully eventually they'll learn.

p.s. I fall into the immature category on this one, but turns out kids tend to love it. Kids usually hate adults.

I used to be very blunt to my older siblings and father, until I realized I was probably annoying them and hurting their feelings. So I just gradually stopped as I got older.

i mean kids say whatever they want anyway, but usually not something like that. I work with kids; that's kind of unusual he would go that far.


^ this bad parenting skittles, yea I agree kids are honest even brutally to a point, but that's too far. I luv the innocent honesty of my younger cousins cuz it's not sugar coated, however they aren't rude about it, and would never just blurt it out either. It's only if I ask and then that's my fault if I don't like what I hear imo

Those that are talking about how proud they are to be blunt, just stop.

I'd rather be honest than not. And I prefer the same to people with me.
