Do you children make comments about people of different races, people with disablities, etc? Does it embarrass you?

Be honest.

  • Not only does my kid NOT make comments like that, he will jump down my mom and dad's throat for making those kinds of comments.

    He has friends that are different colors, religions, races and sexual orientations...he is not prejudice.

  • My children don't because we have friends and family who fit into all if those stereo types and have seen how much rude comments can hurt.

  • Not at all. We talk about the way all kinds of things look, including people.

    I don't think discussing a difference with your child is rude.

  • no but they do ask questions an we take that time to explain why someone may be missing a leg elc. I can only hope that when they get older that they dont make rude comments .

  • the only 'difference' my 5yo points out is if someone is really large, especially a 'pregnant' man. he'll say, ''momma, he has a BIG tummy.'' but that's about it.
    oh and sometimes he'll add, ''..its bigger than your's.''

  • No.. He never did.

    But I think that was because he was the "different' Kid that others made comments about, were mean to, etc... And he heard others make comments about his father , while growing up as well.. So being viewed as different, and being treated as such, I think gave him that understanding and perspective of others who are viewed as "different" as well.

  • My children do not because they know it is not polite and would not want to hurt someone's feelings... I do find my HUSBAND rather embarrassing sometimes.

    He knows better too..... but sheesh will point out things like two blind people walking holding hands "look I can say I really saw the blind leading the blind".... I guess now they can say they heard the embarrassing... ugg.
