I think they should look before you leap, they should ask themselves: 'Is it kind? Is it true? Is it necessary?' Encouraged by the gossiping in pop culture today, children seem more sarcastic than past generations, so i suggest parents need to do something. How do you think of gossip?

dear chocalate, i dont enjoy listening to gossips no matter how interesting it is. i hope i dont sound hypocrite, but most gossips dont have basis to stand on. and they hurt the people that they gossip about. the saying "look at yourself first before you look at the dirt of another", always comes to my mind. gossiping is not healthy. happy mylotting. ann

Nowdays, Gossip has be Industry.I think Gossip is money for few people.For infotainment production, their jurnalist etc but gossip is still not good.Gossip is talk about someone behind.it's ok when it about goodness but about news that we don't know about the truth, maybe it's not our business.

Hi, Zhizho, thanks for your response. Some people talk about someone behind in order to get the promotion in the office.

hi chocalate! my discipler once told me, it is gossip and you are involved in gossip if you are not part of the problem and not part of the solution and you are talking about it. and i may add, if you are talking about it with malice, i believe that is gossip. i don't like to gossip, and i don't like being gossip either. i don't much to other people such as calling others on the phone and just chit chat. for me that is a waste of time. i talk about myself, like if i have problems, i do share. i share my experiences. but i don't share other people's experiences. if i do share, i don;t name names and it is for the purpose of illustrating a point to someone whom i am ministering to. but it is not to put the person involved down. but i believe not one of us is perfect and despite not knowing it, i may inadvertently be involved in gossip by just telling people about somebody. it may just be an innocent comment, but it may be gossip. that is why we really have to ask forgiveness to God because we do not know when or where we make mistakes. take care and God bless you! :D

Gossiping is a form of bullying, especially if the gossip is negative and criticizing about a person, I hate gossips and gossips in the work place can make things very uncomfortable, if you don't join in with the gossiping you are more often than not the next subject of their gossips, some people are just not happy unless they have something to gossip about, they should worry more about their own lives rather than other peoples! I am a type of person who doesn't listen to gossip, most of the time it's made up and besides who wants to befriend someone who gossips all the time?

Gossip is nothing more than just a waste of time. Should I encounter one, I don't believe it easily.

I personally hate people that gossip, but then I know that I gossip too. It's just normal for people to gossip.. they don't intentionally try to hurt the person that they are gossiping about, but then they just do it for fun, when they are bored. I know that sounds mean, but most of the time its true

Hi there chocalate2010! For some reasons, gossips are very interesting. They sell like hotcakes! But of course, they are NOT necessary. We can live without gossips. We can all survive without gossips.
