Since starting nursery our sweet poliet children has started:

1. burping and laughing at the dinner table
2. showing us his half eaten food in his mouth at the dinner table
3. answering back
4. running around the house at high speed jumping on all the funiture.
5. dropping his 't's......DH says I'm making this bit up......I'm not!!

He has become a chav!

AIBU to blame nursery!!??

1. you will get flamed saying 'chav'

2. you will upset a LOT of people who work in nurseries

I blame your spelling & grammar.

How many children into a chav?? grin

YANBU, but it's not the nursery, just being in an environment with lots of other children - DD is noticeably more 'high spirited' after morning running riot with her mates at pre school!

child? Or children?

Yes you are insulting lots of nursery nurses angry

VinegarTits Thu 04-Nov-10 20:08:48

oh dear, are they making him wear a burberry tracksuit aswell

How old is he? Somewhere around the age of 3 boys (and girls) discover that farting and burping is funny. Nothing to do with nursery or chavdom.

He sounds perfectly normal to me!

Mine go to a so-called posh (whatever that means?!) private school, but my DD can (and regularly does) burp loudly and repeatedly on purpose and my DS no longer seems to be able to pronounce the letter "t".

are funny

OP's grasp of grammar must be infectious.

Not nursery, its other children.

My son told me yesterday his dinner smelled of "dog poo" Not a phrase he would ever have encountered in our house hold.

Keep installing manners and discipline, and he will learn to be an oik behind you're back, instead of in front of you!

Why do you think it is acceptable to be so snobbish? Because it makes you feel better about yourself? YABU

Wait till he starts school.

You are being a snob.

chocolatecakeisyummy Thu 04-Nov-10 20:12:55

Sorry "My child into a chav"

We don't have nursery nurses we have workshop leaders and teachers?? confused I'm sure I have insulted them too though wink

chocolatecakeisyummy Thu 04-Nov-10 20:14:08

Why is having good manners related to being a snob??

pjmama Thu 04-Nov-10 20:14:42

I should also add that since starting school, my lovely DCs are much cheekier, more defiant and have far more screaming strops than they ever did before. They also punch lumps out of each other at the drop of a hat.

I'm hoping they'll grow out of it in 15 years or so...<sigh>

Mine too!
He has fogotton the letter 't'...It is horriffic! Today he said 'nah' instead of 'no'.....gah

VinegarTits Thu 04-Nov-10 20:15:25

my 4yr old was farting in the bath earlier, on purpose so he could see the bubbles, do chavs do this too?

VinegarTits Thu 04-Nov-10 20:16:20

why is bad manners related to being a chav?

MmeLindt Thu 04-Nov-10 20:16:26

The dropping his "t"s is quite snobbish. And calling other children/staff at the nursery "chavs" is snobbish.

Kids learn this kind of behaviour. And revel in it.

If you want a meek, well behaved creature in your house, get a dog and train it well.

MummyBerryJuice Thu 04-Nov-10 20:16:28

He's a boy? No?

My DH (privately educated and very 'middle class') thinks it is hilarious to fart and burp as much as possible at home and 'trendy' to drop his Ts.

saffy85 Thu 04-Nov-10 20:18:42

Congrats your children/child (I'm flummoxed as too how many you have confused) are normal.

Sure it aint ya dodgy spelling making ya child/ren a "chav"? <shameless chav emotion> grin

chocolatecakeisyummy Thu 04-Nov-10 20:19:19

Because VinegarTits he has turned into a mini male version of Vicky Pollard and she is a chav and she does have bad manners (goes off to ponder if chavs do ever have good manners.....)
