Any parent of this world will try that their children receive a good education and be cordial and respectful with the people not only of the environment, but also in general.

Because normally they are words learned by the adults that surround the little ones, they see it as a “more” word without knowing exactly what they are saying and their only purpose is to express their discomfort. The moment you start to test yourself, you should know how to react to these uncomfortable situations to avoid aggravating them in the future. But how to do it?
What to do when a child insults us?

– Where did you learn that from? (Hoping he or she doesn´t answer with: “You, Mom” or “You, Dad”.
