So my S/O was picking my son up from daycare (which is in our local university) & a group of guys were standing by where him & ODS were walking. No big deal - except ods is very into 'this person looks like mommy/daddy/nana/papa'. The group of guys were black and ods points and says 'they dont look like you daddy!'. I feel the best response would have been 'everyone looks different, same as hassad (one of his friends at daycare who is middle eastern - included that so it would make more sense for people lol) does not look like you.' & following it up with a not pointing at people talk.

Instead SO panicked and just told him to never say things like that again .... °facepalm°. He still feels he handled it 'good enough' °sigh°.

So has anyone elses SO ruined a learning moment?
