aww i’m sorry. How old is she? its sad that she even knows to say that. When I was a kid I never thought about people being fat/skinny its sad that we adults are so obsessed with it that young children are picking up on it. I would hate to see a young girl develop an eating disorder

That is so sad! I wouldn’t told her it’s not nice to say those things. 

We went to a friend’s little girls birthday party this summer, and she ran up to Fiance immediately and said “Hi! You got chubbier!” 

He’s like yeah…

If that was my child who said that I’d be horrified.

My daughter once kindly informed me that I am “too crinkly” and that I “have whiskers”

Wonderful.

Speaking as someone who has worked with young kids, they aren’t always honest. Sometimes they say things just to be mean and see how you react to it.

Aw my son is super sweet and always compliments me but I think he knows I’m sad about how I look some days, I make sure to compliment him too. I did work at a daycare for 5 years though and I got everything from “you need to put more pretty stuff on your face or no one will like you” to “can I feel your belly baby”- yeah I wasn’t pregnant. =/

Oh geeze…. that’s not nice at all.

DS is 7 and one of the most honest persons I know. Most of his things are those things that should be said, but aren’t b/c so many of us are in the “noyb” group.

ie. My mom got a shirt that had lipstick lips on it and it had lips right over her chest… she came out of the room and DS said…. “You need to change”.. she turned right around and changed… later to see that yea it looked a lil in question. lol

And on the other side he’s EXTREMELY compassionate and notices when you’re having a bad day…

Last time he was at my mom’s she was having a very bad day and was in her room upset with the door closed…. he wrote her a note and stuck it under the door “to be better b/c he loved her” he meant feel better but he missed a word with his wonderful 7 y/o sentence structure. lol

Oh man, that is such a bummer! Kids seriously need a filter sometimes. Once, a kid asked me if I had been punched in the eye. I explained that I hadn’t but asked her why she thought I had, to which she replied, “Well, you’ve got all those bruises on your eyelids.” Yeah, those bruises=my eye shadow.

Ohh kids.. FI’s little cousin is a tiny bit spoiled and is used to have things her way, so she wants his attention and is often jealous around me. In her 4th birthday there was a huge party and when we arrived she asked him in front of his whole family ‘Why did he take me to the party, if I wasn’t invited’. Of course everyone laught it off, but it was an awkward moment.

My daughter is a little special, and sometimes she says things you would wish she hadn’t. In public. To strangers. She once saw this older woman who had a hunchback, her toenails were badly overgrown, she smelled horrible, and she had a hairy mole on her chin. My daughter kept an eye on the woman, and when she got too close, grabbed my son and pulled him away YELLING “get away from the troll! They eat children”

Sometimes…. they don’t mean to be mean…. but they are.
