A young teenager just explained to me that someone is said to 'sound like a broken record' if they repeat themselves because someone who 'breaks a record' will be excited and tell everyone about it repeatedly.


@Azure Teensplaining can be pretty adorable. (And/or obnoxious.) But IMO it's got nothing on childsplaining. I've learned some *very* interesting things from my preschooler.

@Azure I was going to include an example, but I have a memory like a sieve and I can't find what I'm looking for on the compute right now. So in lieu of that, something more vaguely filed under Child Science:

me: "No more for now, because too much chocolate can give you a headache"
3yo: "Yeah but I would probably only get a tiny headache because I'm so tiny"
