My 10 year old dd was talking to a friend at church today, this girl is a year younger than mine and talks with a lisp and kinda babylike. Anyway they were talking about what grades they were in and my dd said something like you can't be in such and such a grade, you can't even talk yet.
I was humiliated that she would say such a thing. The young girl didn't seem offended and said she took therapy for it and they remained to talk friendly afterwards, my dd did say she was just joking to the girl, but I don't know how to get her to realize she needs to think about how what she says could effect the other person.
She really likes this girl, and I really don't think she wanted to hurt her feelings, I think she was trying to be funny and then realized what she had done, when I called her name.
