    Us Brits have some fantastic sayings but if you asked me to say them all, I would not remember half of them. We had a great thread with everyone's sayings from various countries but I forget what it was called.

    Yes we have a lot of them here too. I think a lot of them would be the same considering most of us trace our lineage back to GB. Rhyming Slang too? Love it, some are hilarious and what fun trying to work some of them out. It's not often you run across people now who use it a lot

    Totally. My husband mentors kids through a work program and was appalled to learn that an 8-year-old assignee watched the most violent movies and played equally gruesome games. He kept saying how that was wrong, but didn't have standing to urge the parents to cut off the kid.

    Violent games just desensitize kids to violence which is bad, but they don't make them more aggressive or violent which the tabloids would have you believe I've played them all my life and I'm not a drug dealing homicidal pimp.

    Unfortunately, some of the kids I deal with will end up in jail one day. Stealing by the time they are 11 and I have no idea whether that was before they arrived. Sad but true. Yes, I agree the papers do exaggerate but that is to sell their papers. Most kids are sensible and can cope with these games but I am talking about the ones where the parents are too young with no sense of what is right themselves never mind the kids they bring up. You just don't want to know what their home life is but that is where school life tries to bring normalcy to their lives where respect rules but we do have our failures too.

    Right, broken homes and all that. You must be very patient to deal with those kinda kids. I'd probably go through the roof in 10 mins.

    Yes, they have no respect for anyone. Very sad but predictable. It's when you have their kids in a few years and nothing has changed that's when some would give up and move to another job!

    I teach reading to middle school kids!! Talk about unmotivated!! They can't read and don't want to learn!!

    It is rewarding when you get that handful that wants to learn. We have ereaders , nook color, and they use Mac laptops but with all the technology they have they only want to play games!!

    Oh so true! We hate science. Why do we need it? Pity! They wouldn't have their mobiles, games etc... without it.

    People who ask and answer their own questions.

    Am I serious? Yes. Do I really care? No. Am I hungry? Yes.

    People who do this.............JUST SHUT THE HELL UP!!!!!
