They can't feel you

Today, I went to a funeral with my family. As we were walking on the grass to the burial site, my 5-year-old brother curiously asks, in a not-so-quiet voice, "Sissy, are we walking on dead people?" It was hard to answer his question with so many glaring people. FML

He's a little kid. They ask questions like that. I never understand people who get upset at this. So what if they glared?

Well it was a legitimate question and he is only 5 years old he doesn't know.

I could understand I he was much older, but your bro is in that innocent phase where he will ask questions not realizing how others will react to the question. But I would have told him, in a low voice, that it would be in the area right in front of the gravemakers.

"Yes, yes we are."

I don’t see the problem since it’s a legitimate question.

Honest question from an inquisitive child. F them for glaring. I try to walk behind the headstones.

Ignore the glares. Those people who would glare at a 5 year old for asking a question are not worth your time or consideration (hardly worth the air they waste!)

I mean, he has a valid point. Really, I don't know why ANYONE is judging him rather than thinking about how cute childhood ignorance is. He's five. These sorts of statements are going to happen a lot. Don't shush them. This is how he learns about the world.
