Would you say something?

If you saw a kid with his pants on backwards? My son dressed himself this morning and his pants were on backwards, lol. they'r sweats and I didn't notice it at first and this lady pointed it out to me. She wasn't rude or anything I was just thinking that if I noticed it, I probably wouldn't bother to say anything.

  • My son is three so sometimes he looks ridiculous. But I don't care what he's wearing as long as its clean and suits the weather.

  • I probably wouldn't say anything unless I knew the person.

  • Na, wouldn't say anything -- the mom may then feel like she has to correct the situation which MAY cause a battle of wills with her LO --- and WHO NEEDS THAT??? :-)

  • I would definitely never say anything because it is so normal and common that it would look like a normal thing to see.

    I love it!

  • To be honest I might say something, but in a joking way, if it were a friends child. To a stranger I most likely wouldn't notice the clothes they had on.

  • I wouldn't say anything. My 3 year old is learning to dress himself and I want him to be confident in his ability. Now I will change his shoes if he gets that wrong for safety reasons lol. (He's already unsteady on his feet).
