If you want to hear an honest opinion on something, just ask a child. It doesn’t matter if their kid or not, the chances are they’ll be brutally honest with you.
This video shows as much, with a handful of solid examples of kids saying the things adults would be thinking in the same situation, but wouldn’t actually come out and say.
This is both a blessing and a curse. If your kid is telling a random stranger that they’re fat, that’s not so good.
However, if they’re telling you your sweater is ugly, that can save you from embarrassing yourself. And believe me when I tell you that sweater is indeed ugly.
