Hoping some of the more experienced Mommas can help me out here if anyone has been in this situation. I have three daughters from my previous marriage (the dad and I are the same race). My oldest daughter is 11 1/2 and does not approve of my boyfriend because he is of a different race than me. She admits he is a very nice person but thinks it is wrong for me to be with him because of his skin color. She has said a couple derogatory/unacceptable comments that I would expect from ignorant strangers but not from my own daughter. Her younger sisters (8 1/2 and almost 6) love him to pieces and don't care about his skin color.
I wasn't sure what to do or say when the last comment flew out of her mouth but I did let her know it wasn't okay to say things like that to me because it was unacceptable.
Anyone been through this? How did you handle it?
