  • I think it's cute as long as the children know you are only playing.

  • I tease my kids all the time...they're fine with it. They will pick up on it and usually tease me back.

  • I don't think it is mean, you are teasing and the kids know that.

  • and what if they tell their teacher that or a neighbor trying to pass on the "joke". I think it's a joke in poor taste and might come back to bite you in the behind one day when cps shows up

  • winkNope, it's funny! If more people gently teased and laughed with their children, the world would be a better place.

  • My husband tells the kids we don't feed kids in "X" colored clothes or with glasses (our middle daughter wears glasses) or with shoes on the wrong feet or whatever. My 6yo (the one with glasses) will roll her eyes and say, "that's your playing voice."
    Actually with her we found teasing to be an effective way to get her to wear her glasses as a toddler. She wouldn't wear them and I would wander around the house asking where Brenna was and why this strange girl was in my house. I would refuse to get her lunch until she put her glasses on, etc. The doctor was amazed that she would keep her glasses on at 18 months with no band or anything. I still do it even now that she is 6.
