My mother always tells me and the whole world that I am beautiful. lol But what if someone told you your child is ugly? How would you react? If it is not true? If it is true? I know, someone would be so mean if they tell the parent(s) of the child that he/she is ugly. But there are people who doesn't know how to briddle their tongue.

For me, if they want to say anything about my son, let them say, as long as it is not true about my son. Why they said ugly or other bad things is because that is what their own child is. They are jealous of others child. If they say your son is an addict, that means their own son is an addict, or maybe not, but, will be an addict. I have readed several articles (can remember where) about this. Their own son is an addict, and they don't want their only son to be said as an addict, so they told other parents that their son is an addict. That to cover their own face because their own son is actually an addict. So, if anyone say about your child, just let it be, and teach our own child what is right and what is wrong. So far, my son (4 years) knows what is right and what is wrong, what he can do and what he can't do.

I have to say this is a very good question. I am all for honesty to be honest. I have seen so many ugly babies and I mean U G L Y. I would never tell a person the love of their life is ugly. I also would never say they were beautiful either. I would speak on how cute the out fit is or the stroller etc. I have no problem with anyone telling me my daughter is ugly. I feel everyone has the choice to speak up. I have no doubt in my mind my daughter is beautiful. I hope she stays that way. I also thing you can be beautiful and your actions make you ugly. :)

If I had a daughter and someone told me she was ugly, no matter what she looked like there would be a rumble and I would kick his or her butt! The quickest way to destroy a child is to tell her she's ugly because no matter what all children are beautiful

You know... I really dont understand why anyone would think a child is ugly. I really dont. I guess to me a child is such a beautiful blessing that no matter what physical challenges they may face they are beautiful! To me its the sould that really matters. For instance, I had the biggest crush on a guy years ago. He was handsome, strong, funny and physically attractive. After going on a few dates with him I saw him in a whole new light. He was such an ugly person on the inside that it made him repulsive on the outside. As for weight gain and such, that is a whole 'nother issue.

Who cares what he or she thinks?!? I don't care. They should look in the mirror first before making any comments about others. I don't believe anyone is perfect so who are they to judge??? Personally, I believe my daughter is beautiful inside and out and that is that. No one can change that perspective in me...I would like to also instill in my child that she is beautiful no matter what and that she is very much loved and that's what matters. Opinion of others about such shallow remark is not worth it, what matters is what you think about yourself.

I got your point. Giving weight to their comments will only ruin your day.

I can't imagine anybody can be that mean. If that happens to me I'll just ignore the comment, after all "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!"

If I am told that my child is ugly, I would tell him that my child will be a beautiful swan from an ugly duck some day and that there is no worry about this in a smiling attitude. I would not be bothered by his words at all. Even if my child is ugly, it is still ok for me. I would tell him that my child is one of the green leaves to match the red flowers to make them more beautiful. hehe.

That is a very good attitude. Show the world that you are not affected at all.

Punch them in the face, ok not really but I think that's really rude to do.
