Continuing my flatulence theme for kids, here's another cracking book that parents will enjoy as much as the nippers.

Professor Kompressor and his gas-busting formula promise to cure Walter of his farting disorder. But Walker has such a build-up of gas, he ends up floating in the air like a balloon. Will he come back down to earth?
Pages: 32 Size: 25.0cm x 27.5cm Format: Paperback Age Range: 3 +

Nice one, just ordered. Can't wait to read this to the little un.

It's a funny old world!

If, while he was at school, my 8-year-old grandson spoke about 'farting', he would be in big trouble. Certainly his teacher would rebuke him and mark him as a foul mouthed brat.

Also, he would be corrected if he used that language at home.

And yet BBC children's channel (CBBC) is forever banging on about breaking wind / farting, and now here is a very explicit children's book - which, amazingly, posters on here talk about buying for their kids.

I'm sure we aren't alone in finding it disturbing as we try to bring up our kids / grandchildren to be polite and well mannered.

And the poor kids must be confused as to what is right and wrong, when they get into trouble for saying something which is rammed down their throats by trendy BBC programme makers and people who don't seem to care about standards.

Grandpa, the world changes. I know a lot of changes are for the worse. But I honestly believe that taking a more natural view of bodily functions has helped us be less uptight

Thanks for your comments. I agree entirely. And emphatically we are not uptight, but rather adopt a very robust approach with our children / grandchildren.

However, surely it is important to emphasise that there is a time and place for everything, and a certain standard of conduct which contributes to a civilised society?

As said previously, the kids see this crude conduct on TV and in books and cannot be blamed for believing it is the norm. In real life, they will be rebuked if they copy it - certainly in all the families and schools I know.

It is similar to all the boring f**ks and other gutter language so prevalent on TV nowadays.

Some people - bright young TV producers in particular - seem to believe that coarse behaviour and language is the norm. Well, it may be in their arcane circles, but it certainly ain't out here in the shires where we live, desperately trying to raise polite, well behaved children.

Are you attacking people with this disorder,
as championed and represented by the dog,
or the use of the word to describe it?

Perhaps if it was called
Walter The Flatulent Dog
Due To A Serious Illness

you might be more understanding?

**** ****

I agree with you renard. I am a mum who is trying very hard to raise 2 polite and respectful children. They are still young, but even so, it is very hard not to let them have double standards where these words are concerned. We don't swear, and we try to use innocent words where possible. In my mind it's keeping them children for as long as possible.

Don't get me wrong, we are far from prudes, and we find toilet humour....well humourous! But we prefer to keep the wording a little more innocent! That way, there will be no trouble in school.

We live in the 'Shires' too, maybe there is something in the water. I just wanted to let renard know it's not a grandpa thing.

Banned

Agreed that f***t is totally unacceptable for kids to use and should not be condoned on kids TV or in books such as this which are supposedly educational. When mine were growing up (less than 10 years ago) such language was belted out of them. Correct (more innocent) terms suitable for this agegroup are trump, purp or geff. Trouser cough is good for a giggle too.

I'm with renard & co on this. Manners have nearly gone in society and books like this don't help.
If someone gave a kid of mine this I would chuckle politely but it would be in Oxfam the next day.

Erik, I refer you to my comments in reply to yours in the Pooh - Bertie posting.

I'm sure you know full well that I and others here are not 'attacking' people with medical conditions.

Some brilliant book bargains on your link, thank you! £2 delivered - amazing, much appreciated.

No I didnt know full well,
you seemed to make it pretty clear
how disgusted you were by such a thing
(not the word) in the other post.

So what you guys are trying to say is that its the word thats offensive.
So children should be banned from reading it.
Then if thats the case lets ban Chaucer’s work
which is studied at school by children and uses the same word.

When I challenged your view and the fact you
used your opinion to undermine a thread and site
about hot deals (not opinions) you referred to me
as being on my high horse. Not you of course. No never.

Read the book. Metaphor.
