      Crazy question I know but I could not believe this when I saw it myself and I do not blame Holly for losing her cool to be honest.

      This woman on here Katie genuinely picks and chooses who her children will be friends with depending on which class they are in and what their name is and also if they are dressed well, doing their home work and always on time.

      What she said at the end was just wrong.



      I can think of a few things to call that woman! :headbang:

      The other lady next to her is correct, she should never judge someone by the name, even if the name is simple doesn't mean the person is stupid, it could have an intelligent name but you act stupid or vice versa. The name doesn't make the child it's the way he or she has been brought up, or how he or she choose to live. A Name is just a name, there's nothing to judge on that front.

      That's funny, she doesn't really care of last names just first names and she assumes a lot of values in their parents because of the name, in reality it is just her own biased experiences with other people with similar names. She might have seen the pattern but it still was the people. Same names pertain to people with many different situations and values.

      I find hilarious she thinks she can tell what kids do their homework because of their first name, hahah.
      So shallow. There is no shortcut, just hints. Name "might" be one, but ultimately getting to know the kid is what will tell you if it will drag them down or are good role models.

      I can only hope for their kids to develop minds of their owns and get better pre-judgement methods with less drastic "quick-decisions".

      I agree, people like this usually end up with children who can not wait to leave home and be able to live their own lives. Seems really wrong to have a parent who prevents you from playing with children just because of their name. I can not see her being a popular woman either with her attitude.

      No its unfair to judge a child by their name after all they did not have the choice to choose their own name it was givin to them by their parents

      So are you saying that it's the parents to blame for giving their child a "stupid" name as the lady says?

      This is shocking, she came back to This Morning this Tuesday just gone (10.09.13)

      This time she shocked a lot of people with saying that it's OK to miss your child's birthday and having a go at NetMums




      She even has the nerve to say that giving birth is just a process and another will be along again soon, and that it's like a train :/

      Absolutely shocking and the whole time her face is just an 'I don't care' kind of face!

      I don't see why this is even being entertained by the media. Many parents are very busy just to pay the bills, but to say it's OK to miss birthdays because work goes before your own children is messed up. I hope these children turn out to be OK in the long run.

      She is such an idiot and a bad example to her kids, who the heck is she to judge anyone before she even gets to know them let alone for simply disliking their name, rediculous xxx
