my daughter is almost 3, and my son is 9.
My son grabbed his sister's baby doll and was playing rough with it. Lilee started crying and said "give me baby you hurt her." Then she proceeded to give baby kisses and tell her "it all better."
I told her ah that's sweet. Is that what mommy does when you get hurt. Both kids told me yes, so I asked what does daddy say when you are hurt? My son looks at me and says he calls me a wuss.
I told him daddy just wanted him to be tough. but honestly I've yelled at my husband for this crap before.
just wondering your thoughts, opinions, etc.
Our little talk, so I asked DH last night why he called our boy a wuss, and what exactly a wuss was because when I was younger I was told it was a wimp and a puss. He said oh no I would never say anything derogatory like that. I call him a wiennie(yea cause that's much better). so my son overheard this. and as I was tucking him into bed last night he said mommy I don't think daddy meant to call me a wuss. I told him it's ok cause I know he's a tough guy.
and i would also like to add my son and ydd are not whiners when they are hurt. my little one we actually say if she doesn't cry she's not hurt and we don't mention it. she has to like smack her head repeatedly on concrete to cry. we've done this with all the kids. now SD she is a drama queen and use to start sobbing again with each new person she could tell about her boo boo.
