“You are so stupid, don’t even know what is a jailbreak,” exclaimed a 7 years old son.
This is a conversation of a son and his mother I overheard on the train. Here is how it goes:
Mother: You so rude. (Said softly)
Son: You don’t know what is a jailbreak. Auntie knows, you don’t know.
Mother: Then you explain to me. (Said softly)
Son: I don’t know how to explain. Jailbreak also don’t know, what you know? You know how to eat.
Mother: I know how to earn money.
Son: You so stupid, come out with you is so irritating.
My blood was boiling when I heard this conversation that was happening beside me. The conversation hadbeen going on for about 10 minutes with the son whining to the mother. Finally I couldn’t take it anymore.
I blasted the boy.
I turned to the mum to apologize. She responded by two words, “Thank you.” She added, “It was needed because there’s no man at home.”
She started tearing for the rest of the journey.
It doesn’t matter what I told the boy. I’m more interested in what created this behaviour. What do you think causes the boy’s behaviour?
