6 Embarrassing Topics Your Child Might Bring up in Public and What to Do When He Does

By Marcia Hall, as seen on
Kids say the darnedest things, right? From mispronouncing words to commenting on a taboo topic in a crowded room, kids have a knack for embarrassing the grownups around them. While older kids sometimes do this for attention or simply to test the waters, one thing is universally true: Your response to their comments can either cause emotional pain or it can help them learn. With that said, here are six of the most common embarrassing topics of conversation and some suggestions on how to manage them.
  • Asking a person who has a round belly if she is pregnant. 
  • Comparing breast sizes. 
  • Needing help in the bathroom.
  • Discussing the difference in skin color.  
  • Discussing ladies “time of the month.” 
  • Mispronouncing one word for the other, like penis for peanut.
