And with that, the era of the No Filter Child begins.
My kid actually said this at Peet's this morning. Loudly. While pointing at someone. Thankfully she didn't hear, as I am sure she would have been hurt and I would have been beyond mortified.
He's 3.5, he obviously didn't mean to be hurtful or mean. In fact, he said it so matter-of-factly, like he was pointing out the color of someone's hair. I have no clue where he picked this up, I can only assume school, where he seems to pick up all of the random shit he says.
So, I sat him down and kept it simple—that's a comment that could really hurt someone's feelings. I find it's a difficult balance at this age, you can't get too deep into the concept or they will be totally confused.
Having a child is super weird.
