  • Any ideas about teaching a 3.5 year old about tact?

    Today, at the store, my daughter loudly observed that the lady in front of us in line is 'big'. I simply told her, "What you said was impolite," and then I distracted her with a toy. For some reason, I don't feel right about this approach and can't figure out why. I don't want to stifle her observation skills or ability to speak her mind and at the same time, I would like her to understand that there are appropriate times to speak your mind and appropriate times to keep it to yourself. I have heard that this happens at a certain age and it could have been worse, but I would like some ideas about how you have handled this situation so I can be prepared for the next time this occurs.

I didn't think breastfed babies got sick because they are given immunity goods from mommy. Does anyone know the truth? Please set me strait.
