I posted this in another group and no one responded. I am curious so here it is again. Last night we took our son out for his bday. He turned 4 yesterday. He had a severe bilateral cleft lip and palate and his nose is pretty big and flat. He is super cute! Anyway, there was 7 of us so we were at a table in the middle of booths on both sides. This little girl in one of the booths kept staring, our entire meal. When we were putting on our coats to leave it was really obvious and the dad realized that I noticed her gawking so he started kicking the bottom of her seat. He wasn't kicking her, but under her booth and giving her the evil eye. She was 7-9, old enough to have manners. I mean, I realize he looks a little different, look once twice if you must but STOP staring. Anyway, I almost bit my tongue off wanting to tell him " teach your kid some manners and instead of kicking her seat tell her to stp staring. It is rude." I was mad at myself when we got home because I really felt like I should have said something. What would you have done if you were me? Or the other parent?
