It’s my friend’s question!
Her baby has outgrown and no loner wear her clothes but the baby’s younger sister could wear it. In this case, how should my friend ask the most politely?
Instead of saying
“My baby is too big to wear it. Do you need them? I think your younger one can wear“
I know it sound rude😂

    Phrase it like: “Do you plan to donate the clothes your baby has outgrown?” Or “Do you have any plans for the clothes your baby has outgrown?” (Some people keep those clothes are keepsakes.)

    @Sara S. Oh what I was trying to say is if the baby’s friend’s mom needs some used clothes that my friend’s baby wore

    @Grace Ahhh! You could always just be like “Hey, my baby outgrew these clothes and I would love someone else to be able to get some more use out of them. Would you like them?”

    @Sara S. Oh thanks!!! Is that culturally offensive to ask?

    @Grace Yeah! No problem! And it honestly depends on the culture. In America, it’s very “do it yourself” some times. I grew up in the Latino culture where it’s “it takes a village” type of mentality. So it depends on the background. The way I phrased it above shouldn’t be offensive if it’s between friends. It’s very casual. The way I phrased it was “I am putting the ball in your court” type of deal. They get to make the decision you’re just offering the opportunity. Does that make sense?

    @Sara S. Yeah I got it! It really depends. I think the person who my friend is going to ask is from Australia. We’ll see
