Do you lie when...

Do you lie when someone has a REALLY ugly child and you just tell them it's cute?

  • I pick a feature. They can't ALL ugly. 'Oh he has such a pretty hair color! ' or 'what pretty green eye she has.'

  • yes, because i would not want someone to tell me my child is ugly. No matter what, everyone thinks there own child is beautiful, and that's all that matters.

  • I don't usually offer up whether I think someones kid is cute or not. What I don't like is when a close friend of mine will say how bad her kid looks right in front of him. He has one front tooth in and the other isn't, and the one that is kinda sticks out funny, but I just say, don't worry, they will move as they come in, and will be fine.. I just want to smack her for being so mean in front of him.

  • Of course! Why would anyone want to hurt a person's feelings like that?

  • Of course! I am sure they think it is the cutiest baby on earth...every parent does. Who am I to make them feel bad?

  • No I just don't say anything!!

  • I go with saying the child is going to be a heartbreaker some day. I look at children and see potential saying a child is ugly is a limit anything is possible.
