She could of just said thank-you, not give an opinion and get out of the situation by not lying, but little kids are tuned only to think in reward vs punishment which is probably why she lied.

I taught my kids to never say anything bad about a gift in front of the person who gives it, and if they ever ask about it later on, to say something that would appease them. Like in this case, my kids would have said :thanks for the sweater" and later on when asked about it, "oh it got torn playing football in it",which is usually true with my boys since any clothes they not like, they wear when they play football outside

I want to live in a world where everyone tells the truth. If I got you a bad gift I want to know that, because I'll know what to get you next year! If you hate me, why don't you just say it to my face. It's better than pretending to like me and then gossiping behind my back.

I think the kid was very polite to ask if she could lie, there is nothing ungrateful about knowing she would sound ungrateful and not wanting

Little kids speak their minds, this is why they get taught to keep some things to themselves. I suppose it depends how little she was, but chances are that most people at her age have said something their parents were not proud of. Hopefully her grandparents understood.

Make her wear it as punishment for being a rude little butthead.

Considering that "butthead" is in no way insulting, more so a playful way to pick on someone, yes I feel good about that.
Do you feel good for overreacting?
Also, you can't say how old the little girl is. My mom called me her little girl until I was around 11.

To a 4/5 year old that's pretty insulting, said with the right tone it may even reduce a sensitive child to tears, you feel good for this? I cannot argue with such evil.

Looks to me like one of the mods changed Bobissmall's comment to something slightly less offensive.

zmeiler, you can put whatever you want on FFML and I'm sure it would look cute.

Not to mention, im surprised it isn't illegal to change someones comment without making it clear that it was edited like that. It's almost like pretending to be someone, like fraud or something. Meh, the law is ridiculous so often.

Actually i'm from the UK just like you, and it wasn't bad, it was basically along the lines of "You just insulted a 4/5 year old, i hope you feel good about your self"

  Bobissmall  |  13

No, there's just a lot of comments, and i do not know of which you refer to.

It's also interesting how ive been the only one to not insult anyone, but also the only one to have my comments edited.

Bobissmall, I sent them to you via a PM, but you can also access them via the link underneath the comment box. They are linked to via the "our rules" text.
