I've seen this touched on a bit in other posts and threads, but I wanted to bring it up specifically as it's own topic.
I'm sure many others have experienced comments from friends or even strangers when their child has done something extraordinary (I guess that's why they call it "remarkable!") Sometimes this creates an awkward situation for me, particularly when we are at a playgroup with age-mates and it becomes the topic of discussion.
I'm curious if others have found ways of responding to or deflecting these types of comments as parents and also the experiences of those with older children who are more self-conscious of their differences.
