My 3 yr old son saw a very deformed man in Toys R Us and exclaimed (loudly) "Mommy, Monster". I said to my son "No, honey, that is a man" and looked at the man and apologized. I was so embarrassed. I tried to explain to my son afterwards that not all people look the same but I really think he's a bit too young to grasp that concept. Any suggestions on what I could have done differently?Answer Question

I have told my girls that if they want to say something about people they see, they are to whisper it to me. It is just a rule and they are good about following that. Then we are able to have a conversation about it without everyone knowing about it.
