I said something so completely out of character to my 6 yr old, I'm having a hard time recovering from it. No, I did not call him names or tell him he was stupid, (which I would never do), but I used a word to describe something he was doing that is just so outrageous, that I am in horror of myself! I did apologize and told him it was a bad word, and that I would never say it again. BUT, he was very persistant in asking me the meaning of the word, and rather than him going to school or daycare and asking someone there, I thought it better if I told him.
But now I am totally distressed over it. I asked the advise of someone I work with, and feel like I am a totally horrible person/parent. I could burst into tears momentarily.
