  • The only reason someone would do that is because they are ignorant and or want to start trouble.

  • Uh No!! What would be the point in insulting a perfect stranger?? Both my kiddos look like their daddy, the only thing that resembles me is their eyebrows, and crooked pinkies, anyways, if someone pointed that out to me I would be kinda insulted/hurt.

  • What's wrong with that? My son looks NOTHING like me. I suppose there is a NICE way you could say it... like "Your son must look a lot like your husband." or something like that.

  • All three of my kids were born looking like their daddy! It didn't bother me at all. Now the boys are older I can see more of a resemblance to me, but that doesn't really matter! Just tell them that their baby is cute and that'll make them happy :)

  • No, that's pretty rude.

  • No. I might comment about a child who looks a lot like the parent but not the other way. The child might be adopted and the parent might not want to discuss that in front of the child.
