From the mouths of babes
I love listening to my children having their meaningful conversations (of course I do that secretly)!
If you want an honest opinion ask a child they don’t have time to think of ways not to offend you. Though I’m now at the stage where I’m giving them alternate ways to describe people.
It’s such a difficult concept to teach a child to be honest and yet at the same time teaching them how to be sensitive to people’s feelings. Sometimes to maintain that honesty means being silent which is not always easy. After all we love giving our honest opinion.
So I guess the question is…Do I look fat in these jeans?
Next time I suggest you ask a child. The response may not be what you expected but at least it will be the truth and nothing but the truth!
