  • Yep. It's like that old Bill Cosby show Kids Say the Darndest Things. Both of my kids have, at some point, repeated things in public that I didn't even knew they'd heard me say, usually at the WORST possible moment. It's the nature of kids to do that though so I'd just hustle them out of the store and forget about it days later.

  • My son has autism--of course he has! I'm more used to it now and it doesn't seem to matter what he does, it doesn't embarass me.

  • Oh yes my now 3 year old has quite a few times unfortunately. She has screamed and thrown fits in restaurants and stores. It can be anything from not wanting to sit in the basket at the store to being tired and cranky at a restaurant. It ranges but yes on more than one occasion I must say I've had my share of stares from other people.

  • YES!! But if anyone has anything to say about it then I pretty much shock the hell out of those people who have the audacity to be so rude themselves. Kids will be kids and people just need to mind their own business.

  • Yes! My daughter never fully developed the ability to filter her thoughts. Led to some very inappropriate comments, mostly when she was younger, though she's still exceptionally blunt.
