  • If my in-laws EVER called my son a name like that...they would not be seeing him anymore. Period. Anyone that would yell stupid at a 2 year old for doing something as innocent as pouring water on the floor, when it was their own fault that it happened in the first place, is a person my child does not need to be around.

  • I agree with Ash, that is absurd! I would not want that type of person as any role model for my children.

  • no way is that appropriate and I myself would've said something to him. yes your own place would be great. you did well by explaining to your child that they are not stupid and adults shouldn't act like that.
