I think it's because Avery is stupid and boring... she just doesn't like to hear criticism.

Leave it to those darn Catholics to use words like stupid in front of 5th thru 8th graders. Got to love the Reform’s in West Michigan, looking for every angle they can to bring down the Catholic Church.

Let’s not kid ourselves, kids this age know most if not all “dirty” words. This nun should be applauded. Instead, it has become a front page news article angled at bashing The Church.

If only the Catholics could be half the people the Christian Reforms THINK they are, this world would be a much better place, sigh

I wonder about the kids freedom of speech rights. While Idont think they need to swear,{stupid, boring} sounds a little extreme

I can understand banning swearing, but stupid and boring? It sounds like the list of what the kids are allowed to say may be shorter. That just hits a whole new level of ridiculous. Or is that a banned word too?

Good job Sister Avery.

Let the kids know what they sound like. Maybe if the kids don't like hearing it they will stop using it and encourage their parents to stop cursing too. Kids learn from home first. If it is o.k. for mom and dad, why shouldn't it be o.k. for them to use ugly words.

We have to many youth cursing and being
disrespectful these days. Someone has to try to stop it before these kids grow older and become our leaders.

My kids (age 2.5 and 4.5) aren't allowed to say those words either. No stupid or boring in our house. I am happy the school isn't letting the kids say those words. I only wish the school was closer to my house!

The vast majority of words used today were not allowed to use in typical families and schools back in the 50s . I think things started to change around 1970 . That is when the liberals got there push from all the dope that they smoked .

My opinion on the subject .
