"Where are you from?" said a son.
I picked up my son from his elementary school. Once I was driving around, he popped the question: "Where are you from?" and giggled. I braked my vehicle to a suddenly and complete stop. Looked at him in puzzlement, I asked him, "Where did you learn to say that line, honey?" "One of my friends taught me that line, why?" replied my son. I turned off the motor in the parking lot behind the "Giant Dollar" store and opened the windows to let the fresh air in. I explained to him that the line has been used by some gang members and with an act, they will harm others or shoot them. My son's eyes became widened and understood what if it can happen. We waited for a while, he was quiet. He turned around and asked, "If someone at school ask me where I'm from? What would I say to him/her?" Trying to think for a moment, I told him, "Well, you can simply ignore them and walk away OR say 'I'm around here. Excuse me, I gotta go now.'"
I don't know if I'm doing the right thing.... This is the first time, he popped a question two days ago. His graduation is next week and will be 11 on June 27th. He got me worry now.I SEE NEKKED PEOPLE! AIN'T SKEERED!!!!!

ive never heard of that either....i thought it was just "a pick up line" to get hit on or something lol but if thats the case, you better be careful god forbid...granted your son is in elementry school but you dont know what other kids are doing weither younger or older. i wouldnt sweat it...kids pick up things and dont know what they mean all the time (we taught my boyfriends 2 year old neice to say "yambag" and she hasnt got a clue as to what it means lmfao)i AM the original "Loose Cannon!"

yeah, but I'm worry about it when he'll be in the middle school in September as a 6th grader.
My son said that his friend's brother in lowest high school taught him the line and his friend taught him the line. (Lowest high school in Los Angeles city... is because his brother was OTed twice.. OT: Opportunity Transferred. ) I'll take that "yambag" as an answer for him to use and see what it can do.I SEE NEKKED PEOPLE! AIN'T SKEERED!!!!!

Well, if you let your child attend public school you're gambling with his intelligence anyway- so why not his safety, too?The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando

yeah, Crimebytes2, I love being a responsible parent. My kids hate it when I discipline them but they still love me. I'm still working on my older daughter... <sigh> Not easy but she's gettin' around to be a better kid. I notice so many parents around here on every block and street just don't care about their own kids. Always defending them with "my son/daughter is a good boy/girl. She/he doesn't do anything wrong. Some kids are making up." They then storm out of the office many times in my daughter's old middle school.
I would either defend or not defend depending on the complaint some kids made. If they (school) won't provide evidence, then the kids lied (I know them...). If they tell me the truth of what she was doing: walking around boring, not being in class. Then I would definately scold her and ground her. She hates it but she accepts the responsibility of what she did. That is what I do, as being a responsible mother. Why making babies if they don't want to act as parents?
Centurion, my son already has been explained a numerous of times about his safety and our safety. He loves it when I look after him especially picking out proper clothings and hear the same ritual "Look both way before you cross the street." I hope he will not be a mama's boy. Heh. I also explain to my son regarding the middle school and his safety. My daughter will not be there for him when he'll be a 6th grader. He will have to work harder and tell the school officials if there is something wrong. (I doubt they will ever listen to his future complaints. Glad my OTed daughter's middle school is BETTER. So she will stay there until graduation in 2007. She said she likes it there better than her old school. If I ever hear one word out of that old middle school. I'll send my son packing to my daughter's middle school 14 minutes away.)I SEE NEKKED PEOPLE! AIN'T SKEERED!!!!!

Perhaps the child actually wanted to know where you were from? As in place of birth.To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.

It's best for my son to ignore that line and not to use that line unless he meet nice people and ask where they from like state of birth, etc..I SEE NEKKED PEOPLE! AIN'T SKEERED!!!!!

I've heard of this, mostly in California when I worked gangs there. In other areas they may ask "What set are you claiming?" or Who you wit. If my kid asked me about this I would tell him to say, I'm from my mother and father. Or I was born in FILL IN THE BLANK City in FILL IN THE BLANK State!Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on.

Well, sounds like I gotta let this thread rest now. Still I'm gonna make sure my son will be okay in the middle school and high school. Too many kids with negative influences...where are those good kids with positive influences gone to?I SEE NEKKED PEOPLE! AIN'T SKEERED!!!!!
