Massive thread and only read he first page.
She was rude. Your DS is 5.
Haven't read any replies. If there were other kids within earshot I think you should have asked your DS to be quiet. If there weren't other kids around then the lady was way out of line.
Either way your poor DS wasn't at fault.
To the people wailing over the fact that we want to deny a five year old freedom of speech....
Having freedom of speech does NOT mean it is appropriate to say whatever you want whenever you want it! Seriously. How many times do we bite our tongues or say something differently to how we do in our heads... All the time!
It's called politeness. I don't believe in lots of things but I don't go around vocalizing it. I don't see that as a violation of my right to freedom of speech for goodness sake.
It sounded like he was saying it so it would easily be heard by others. I still think that's wrong and would tell my DS not to say it around others in case it upset them. As I would about many other things.
Again I agree! I think the OP said she has done the same actually.
I think we are basically agreeing with each other, so I'll just shut up now ('finally!' they all said... haha)
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
