am I the crazy one?
So this week-end Devin went to a sleep over with about 5 other 10 year old boys....he was looking forward to it just like most kids do. It was for one of his friends birthday so we had picked out what Devin thought was the coolest nerf gun and right after school they were taking all the boys over to their house for the fun to begin!!!! I tend to be one of those moms that worry alot but I was feeling alright about this because Devin has gone to this friends house before so I didnt feel I had anything to worry about. We went and picked him up from the boys house about 10 the next morning. Devin didnt seem himself I thought oh he is probably tired as sleep overs never really include much sleep!!!! I asked Devin if he had a fun time and he said it was ok...so now Im thinking something is differently wrong!!! Once we got home he told me that one of the boys had a razor cell phone and had taken pictures of girls butts and was showing everyone. I thought to myself wow a 10 year old with razor cell phone...who does that and why???? Obviously this child is not mature enough to be using it the right way. I mean I got Devin a little tracphone only for when he is at his dad's house because his dad wont let him use his phone, and then he uses it if he walks home from school so he can be in touch with me during the walk, its the cheapest phone you can get its less then $10. Then Devin went on to tell me that most of the boys cussed the whole time...saying words like "shit" "damn" "fuck" even when the parents were around, I certainly do not allow my 10 year old to go around talking this way!!! This all made Devin feel uncomfortable and made me wonder once again what is going on with our kids now a days!! What happened to just being a kid, and why are parents ok with all of this. I sometimes wonder am I the only one that doesnt find this kind of behavior to be appropriate?? Am I suddenly in a universe that all this is ok??? Please someone tell me am I the one going crazy here????
