I have a son who is 8 and recently if anyone says anything to him he doesnt like he retaliates with "thats a bit racist". It seems to be the in
talk at school and last week I explained to him in basic terms what it actually meant. I told him it is when someone is nasty or doesnt like someone
because of the colour of their skin or where they are from. I said me nagging at him to clean his teeth isnt being a bit racist!
Today, my mum who has dementia was getting a bit agitated with him for jumping on settee, once again he said laughing "Grandma thats a bit racist".
I said "David, how can Grandma be racist, I told you last week what it meant, do you remember?" He replied "yes, it if someone is nasty because of
different skin and Grandma has different skin than me because she has lots of wrinkles, so she is racist".
What could I say to that lol. My child is the one person who can make me smile even in the worst of times. Bless him!
