Kids and their silly comments. But why would you even specify what type of shopping?
And what exactly is wrong about a 2 year old knowing what a bra is? Kids absorb information about everything around them, and some are naturally more curious than others. What is inherently wrong with answering your kid if they ask what that is, aside from minor embarrassments for the parent in situations such as this one?
Wow mark, you've actually held a bra up to your nieve and asked what it is? No, then how the hell would you know if she know what it is? And for those schmucks who think they "know" what 2 year olds should know; the age of 2 actually consists of much mental development. A 2 year old at 35 months old (still 2 years of age) is much more advanced mentally than at 25 months.
And yes, actually, I have 5 kids spanned from 16yrs to 9mo. Tell me geniuses, what do you tell your 2 yr old (this question is for the women and mark, who apparently also wears bras around his niece) when they see you dressing and ask what it is? Mark, did you tell your niece to "stfu"? Because that's a real mather attitude to have. You are the same screwed up asses that call a penis a wee wee I presume.
Llamacod, you have a valid argument, but I don't think it works in this situation. Yes, if a two year old saw you with a bra, asked what it was, and you told them, they would know. However, if this never happened, you wouldn't expect a two year old to discover what a bra is on their own, right? In fact, at two years old, a child probably isn't even interested in what you're wearing. OP never indicates that they told their child about bras prior to at the bank, so you don't really know. And lastly, had the child known what bras were, they wouldn't have said "We're going to buy Mommy boobies", would they? I rest my case. Also, on a side note, if you start attacking others to solidify your own argument, you actually weaken it. Calm down, cause no one did anything to you.
Shadowroller have you ever been around a 2 year old? Let me tell you one thing about kids aged 2-5, they are curious about everything. You're correct, op didn't state that op jr ever asked about bras, but lets face reality here, this kid must be the smartest ******* 2 yr old on the planet to know absolutely nothing about a bra and yet know that they have something to do with mommy's luscious, luscious fun bags.
And nocturnal, if I were you I'd be really, really careful not to get caught asking the kids you work with what bras are as you show them one... What? You don't do that? ohh silly me, just how do you bring up the topic of what a bra is? See, just trying to show you that just because they don't talk about bras all day long doesn't mean they don't know what one is.
I'm pretty surprised that people are saying most two year olds don't/shouldn't know what a bra is. My sister is 26 months and knows what one is. Since OP's son is a boy and doesn't wear a bra, of course he's going to be curious. Why lie to him, or even omit the truth? Depending on when/if the child stopped breast feeding, he may already know what breasts are. I think this is cute.
there's nothing wrong with kids knowing what bras are. I mean it's just something that holds your boobs up right? kids already know about boobs since they were probably breastfed so I thinks it's natural if her kid knew what it was. why do people have to be so uptight and prudish about breasts?
Wow, kids are way smarter then people credit them for. How about a 13 month old knowing what a bra is? yes, my daughter was nursed until she was almost a year. And at 13 months said bra, shirt, jeans and much more. Now at 25 months, the daycare has her in the 3-4 year old room because they can't occupy her brain. Children have learnt everything they know, and have to learn everything they will know! What age they learn it at depends on their mentality. Crap.... At a year and a half my daughter tried peeing on the potty standing up, and said "daddy?" she now knows girls sit, and boys stand. But I guess that makes me a bad parent for teaching my daughter life, instead of just shapes and colours, eh?
Llama I don't really understand your hostile manner. Everyone raises their child differently. Every child learns at a different rate. In your family they probably do know what a bra is but not every two year old know. You can either agree or disagree but to be out right attacking peoples opinions is just rude. OP your child sounds cute! Enjoy the moments while they last. Your child won't be young forever and they will turn into great funny stories one day!
my son was 15 months when he knew the word boobies he refers to bras as boobies. at least you weren't at the store shopping and he see the bra's and screams "boobies! boobies are awesome! mommy boobies are awesome!" everyone stared. and sadly their fathers usually teach them rhose words and what they are
Why would you tell your 2 year old that you were going to go bra shopping? He's only 2. He obviously doesn't understand.
48 - There are ways to improve that. Many people have grown up the same way, or perhaps even worse, so I imagine there has been enough study in the area to develop some good tools that can help you. Ridding yourself of your inhibitions is one of the most amazing feelings in the world. Also, people are so hellbent on protecting their children from anything sexual, that in the end it often results in some type of sexual dysfunction, or at least some sexual retardation. When I had the "talk" it consisted basically of why I *should* have sex, and lots of it. However, there was always emphasis on being in a trusting relationship beforehand. Maybe parents should focus less on preventing their kids from having sex, and more on preventing them from being total ****** idiots.
65- totally agree about teaching sex, lol. I'm probably not going to tell my daughter (who at the moment is 2) to go out and have sex. But I will teach her as she grows how to be safe about it. I am far from a nudist, but my daughter knows the different body parts, and difference between boys and girls. She knows a baby grows in a tummy and so on. She knows meat is from animals and everything dies eventually. Maybe I have an above intelligent daughter at 2 years one month old. But teaching her life at this stage when her brain is doing nothing but absorbing is far more important to me than all the shapes and colours, which she also learns daily! MrMisfit - have you ever talked to a 2 year old? If they don't have a good vocabulary they use other methods to show you what they are thinking. Pictures, actions and try to say it.
141 - Thank you for being a smart parent. If more people wanted to do something about the current state of the world, they'd just raise their kids right. It always baffles me why violence and hatred is more acceptable than sex and pure love. Maybe it's because not enough attention is given to the purpose of sex, beyond that of reproduction. Anyway, hopefully more people will start to realize this.
