That's just rude, but true
It’s true that kids say the darnedest things; they just don’t have a filter for their thoughts yet and don’t understand that honesty isn’t always the best policy. They’ll gladly point out all of your faults with no malice intended; they just want to make sure that you know that you’re fat, ugly, or near death. Hey, you may not like hearing it, but they’re just being honest. These children just had to let adults know what was really going on.
Laughter From Sorrow
I work at an after school program with kids aged 5-12. I had recently had a miscarriage and told the kids I was no longer pregnant because they were excited about me giving birth in the future. I tried to let them know that “my baby stopped growing and it passed away in my tummy.” Some of them were pretty bummed out after hearing the news.
When I was leaving at the end of the day, I was saying bye to a few of them and one of the second graders who adores me yelled out “Sorry again about your dead baby!” For some reason it made me laugh instead of any other emotion. After so much crying from the actual miscarriage, I started cracking up and just said thank you. (shainajoy)
U – G – L – Y
A dead serious 3 year old little kid who straight up asked me “Why are you ugly?” No ill intent behind it, wasn’t being mean. The little guy just wanted to know. (Anonymity273)
All That Acne
I was about 16. Young kid (maybe 6 or 7) in front of me in church turns around, stares for three seconds, states, “you got a lot of pimples.” Turns back around.
He was not wrong. (onewheeloneil)
