Oh no he didn't!
Yesterday my kids and I were grocery shopping and of course they were playing around tagging each other and talking bad about each other ( what kids consider bad) when my youngest pointed to a gentleman who was overweight and said "Wow he's fat!" I of course told my son to " Be Quiet! You don't say things like that about people, it hurts their feelings!" I could hardly look at the guy when he passed by us, I was just hoping that he hadn't heard but by the look that he gave me, he could have shot me on the spot. My oldest then replied, "Well mom he is just telling the truth and you always say tell the truth!"( Yeah now you listen to me.) Then I had to explain again why you don't go around talking about peoples physical attributes, you want people to like you for who you are on the inside, not the outside. I explained to the kids that the man could be a great guy, great father, good friend we don't know. But what we do know is that we want people to like us for who we are not what we look like. My youngest then hugged me and said "But I love your fat tummy! Its so nice and soft and squishy, its one of the best parts of you!" Yes child you may feel that way but I don't, keep it to yourself!
