A friend told me last week about her doctor's advice for when her kids are acting up in public. You say, loudly enough for the onlookers to hear, "Just wait until I tell your mother how you were acting today." or any variation of that.
Last night, I thought of this advice.
P and I had a girls night - went to dinner, shopping, and met her friend (and mine) for dessert at Freckles. So, dinner goes well...she is a hoot, quite frankly. Then we went to the store to look at clothes. P says, "Why does that person in the wheelchair have a boy's face but girl's clothes on?" Let me back up and say that P's volume button seems to be broken lately. She has loud....and...well....still loud. Totally innocent question from a 5 year old (the girl had short hair and no makeup but was still clearly a girl)...but one of those times that I wanted to say, just as loudly, "We better hurry so your MOTHER doesn't worry about you being gone so long".
At what age do kids get a filter?
