I saw this lady on this morning, when the poll went against her, insulted the other lady seated beside her, called Eamon H stupid and was generally obnoxious.No self awareness.
I think the answer is somewhere in between her views and a laissez faire attitude. If a child is very badly behaved and aggressive, of course you would advise your kids against them, but I think most kids avoid these types anyway.
I would not judge a kid on their name or their parents but on they themselves.as individuals. if I knew a kid was deprived and suffering and there were drugs in the home and alcohol, I would contact my local Health authority or ISPCC. to give some support. I would have no problem with my kids befriending the child, it would teach them compassion and kindness.
