My 10 year old son has to tell me every thought that comes into his head. Plus, he always thinks he has thought or done something he shouldn't have. Lately he says he's sorry that a thought came into his head that I'm fat. I am getting sick of hearing this. Yes, I am overweight, so it hurts my feelings. He doesn't seem to feel the need to tell other people (including my husband) what he's thinking. He saves all of this for me.
He's very caring and generally considerate. He's an only child, so he seems to me to be quite mature (although on the playground he's probably just one of the kids). I don't want to make this bigger than it is, but I want to handle it now so that it doesn't continue. This has been going on for about a month.
