"When the daycare gives your kid a nickname because his name is "difficul..."


  

          

So now my son (18 months) is starting to adopt that name when before he was trying to say his own name.

I don't feel like I'm over reacting when I ask what the fuck is wrong with people that they think that's ok, particular since we've brought it up before.

1. "my oldest has a french name"
In response to Reply # 0


          

its pretty long but we made sure not to use her nickname around adults who need to use her full name.

also made sure to tell her to always use her full name at school.

when she is older I’m sure she will start using it

but nah.. they need to get it right.

Our problem was daycare. Most Black daycare workers struggled or intentionally said her name wrong cause they were being lazy. Which was a bit frustrating because they could say a lot of difficult names but they just said fuck those letters when it came to her name.

That action is degrading and can give your son a complex. Either they comply,
or you should go somewhere else.

I always ask people what would they like me to call them. Do you want me to
call you by your full name or is there a sensible moniker that you would like
me to use?

I make it a point to pronounce people’s name correctly.

Imagine if you were this kind and thoughtful toward transpeople, who you consistently misgender on these very boards, because you're a fucking asshole.

eventually leads back to transpeople.

Like there is this very interesting twitter thread by this lady rabbi about judaism and abortion and after dropping so much knowledge on the subject the first thing she had to do was respond to criticism to not being inclusive of trans men who have babies.

https://twitter.com/TheRaDR/status/1125877688877625347


I see it a lot and not sure it helps the cause of trans people.

... he has a history of being a complete and total asshole about them.

I do the same re: racism, and sexism, and homophobia, and other issues, with people who are consistently complete and total assholes about those matters.

Assholes need to hear that they are assholes, early and often.

Six months ago I sent a message through the app about my daughter, “appreciate the pictures, however we’ve seen the ones without a mask, we had previously talked to you all about it as well as her, she does not have our permission to be without a mask and if another one picture comes without one we will remove her from the school”

I haven’t received one maskless picture since.

I guess I'm the bad parent

when I was a kid, I hated when people would try to Anglicize my name because it was more convenient, and would often correct them.

Complain to an administrator if you haven't already, but definitely be noisy about this, since it is important to you.

They'll see a kid at this age for at most 6 months and often times much less due to the high turnover rate in their profession.

So in that case I think they should stick to the basics. Colors, words, shapes, animals.

Not defining how a kid self identifies without talking to the parents.

I got a common but often mispronounced and misspelled 'Black' name (Antoine)

Grew up with teachers butchering my name for the 1st few weeks of school

I corrected em

As an adult the less I care

Just spell it correctly on the check or important documentation

If I'm cool with u chances r u kno the vibes and eventually calling me the shortened version of my name 'ant' or "toine'

Older Spanish folk always end up calling me Antonio lol

I don't even correct em anymore

We have the ability to say “cool nick name or nah.. don’t call me that”

but an 18 month old baby doesn’t have a choice.

wife and I have 5011 nicknames for our kids.. but at school its their full name until they decide what lil nicknames they want to use with friends.
