“”Why does she sound like Darth Vader?”
-Finn (2014, 4.5 years old)
Children oversimplify things. It’s just what they roll. My son was out with my wife while she ran some errands. A lady came up to them and asked them a question. She must’ve had some previous esophageal cancer or larynx ailment because she had a voice box to communicate. These moments for parents, when our kids speak without filtration, can be cringeworthy.
We only have a few options in the moment. Are we corrective? Are we conciliatory? Who do we address and how?
Though Avara felt embarrassed, the woman didn’t hear anything. At the end of the day it’s our job to render our kids somewhat uninterested in the differences of others. They can be observant without becoming electrified by and fixated on the newness of a person’s uniqueness. And telling them they look like Star Wars villains.
