I think anyone would be, 10 or not.

Costacoffeeplease Sat 24-Feb-18 23:52:37

Jeez, really?

Fluffyblanket17 Sat 24-Feb-18 23:53:08

Anything I say to my 11 year old is embarrassing hmm

NoSquirrels Sat 24-Feb-18 23:54:31

Well, totally confused for sure ... a d it IS a bit embarrassing?

“Big” = cringe
“Beautiful” = cringe in a different way
“Beast” = confused

It's a parent's job to embarrass their child. As long as you understand each other generally I'm sure she'll know you mean it nicely. Just don't do it in front of her friendsgrin

Ds would probably

growl and do his dinosaur impression.

OutyMcOutface Sun 25-Feb-18 00:21:24

That made me feel embarrassed. Alireration is great but you don't have to try so hard.

FenellaMaxwellsPony Sun 25-Feb-18 00:22:05

I think most people would be embarrassed!

LardLizard Sun 25-Feb-18 03:58:18

Haha well I did squeeze her up and tickle her after and we had a laugh n joke
Guess she’s just getting to that age now, just thought maybe she was a bit young to get so cringed out if I had said that to her when she was younger she wouldn’t have minded probably would have even liked it

I’m cringing at it now.

DoneDisappeared Sun 25-Feb-18 04:44:27

Ummmm... I think the only person who might not be embarrassed is a toddler (but even then I'm not sure) 🤔😲

HollyBollyBooBoo Sun 25-Feb-18 04:48:59

It's hardly a compliment is it! I'd be offended if anyone said it and I'm 40!

Mummyoflittledragon Sun 25-Feb-18 05:15:53

If she’s had a growth spurt, isn’t her reaction possibly hormonal?

Rewn7 Sun 25-Feb-18 08:05:48

I’ve always called DD ‘beautiful’ as a nickname. “Morning Beautiful” is normal for me to say to her. I’d avoid the word ‘Big’ though but only because my own dad used to comment in my weight as a child so that’s ingrained into me to avoid. My issue really.

Also it is your duty to throw in the occasional embarrassment purely for traditions sake grin

Rainboho Sun 25-Feb-18 08:09:58

My 11 year old (hormonal) would probably burst into tears if I said that to her!

Maybe leave off the big beast aspect 😂

Waitingonasmile Sun 25-Feb-18 08:13:51

That's not a nice thing to call anyone! confused

TieDyedBumhole Sun 25-Feb-18 08:16:16

My ds (11) wouldn’t be embarrassed- he’d just say “no, you’re MY big beautiful beast”.

ineedamoreadultieradult Sun 25-Feb-18 08:21:41

I think that's an awful thing to say to a 10 year old, are you trying to give her body confidence issues?!

EveningShadows Sun 25-Feb-18 08:24:18

I would never use the word big - especially for a girl. The connotation of being overweight would be all I could think about, even at 10.

Beautiful yes. Big never.

BangingOn Sun 25-Feb-18 08:26:28

It’s pretty cringy and I would avoid ‘big’ like the plague. Horrid thing to say.

Bluntness100 Sun 25-Feb-18 08:26:52

Jeez, what female wants to be called a big beautiful beast. Have you no empathy? Do you want to be called it? confused

Peachyking000 Sun 25-Feb-18 08:27:51

I cringed and had goosebumps even reading it.

Beautiful yes - I can’t imagine any 10 year old girl being happy re big or beast though.

UnicornPug Sun 25-Feb-18 08:34:32

I have called my dd beast or beastie as a nickname since she was a toddler, so I think she’d be ok with it. As long as we were in private that is. In public I may only use her name, and nothing else. Hell hath no fury like an 11 year old who you’ve just called ‘banana’ in front of friends. that she has known forever and are completely aware that banana is one of her nicknames
