Default 3 year old cussing

My 3yr old keeps repeating Fuc@ng Sht. We have tried ignoring it, taking to him nicely, then firmly and then my wife just patted him on the butt. He looked at her and said that it didn't hurt and laughed. I buried my face into the computer trying not to show any signs of laughter, but seriously I have to fix this. I'm sure the teachers at daycare are going to let me hear about it. Anyone else go through this? My daughter never did this. Also, I'm not sure where he heard this from. Maybe it was me, but I usually try to be careful about cursing at home. Anyhow, what's next the soap?

Maybe its the teachers at daycare where he heard it?

Good luck. I have friends who have kids who curse at very young ages because the parents or some other adult they are around them does.

At 3 they didn’t likely read it somewhere.

When I was a kid, around our house a bar of soap was used. Regularly and liberally. Age three would have been early enough. There were seven of us, and word quickly got around when the bar of soap was used.

My wife and I used a very tiny bit of tabasco sauce on a q tip. Never had to use it more than twice. Our kids always made the effort to challenge us to see if we were serious about discipline. They got the message after the second time.

Nip that in the bud and pay close attention to the language you and the wife use around the child. The child is hearing those words somewhere. If not at home, there where?

My wife is an elementary school teacher/interventionist in a very rural school. She was used to the language and the posturing when she was a teacher at an urban middle school (Gangster Land.. think Criminal Minds with Michelle Pfeiffer), but hearing the language and having to contain children at the elementary level in a rural environment was a bit of a surprise.

My first question when she talks of a problem child.. "Where did that 10 year-old learn that, 'F*ck you b*tch' was an appropriate response to anyone, let alone a teacher or person of authority. It almost always tracks back to the parents.

Soap is okay, but from what I have seen, soap is less effective than a solid example. Good luck.

LOL.. a time or two it is funny, once it becomes a habit, its no longer funny.... me personally, I'd tell them "no", one time. If it would happen again, I'd bust their ass...

I'd also blame the daycare, no way you want to take credit for this....... wife will blame you for everything from now on.

Most (at least quite a few) of the tv shows we watch and enjoy throw around that language constantly. We've kind of gotten numb to it. But that's some fvcking shite man, hope you figure it out.

I can’t help you but is it ok if I laugh about this for a little while?

Now I remember a Thanksgiving dinner at the in-laws where the wife's parents, wife's sisters, their husbands and the first grandchild (3 YO boy) were all there together. These people were like my family in one respect- I never heard foul language from any of them.

At dinner, the little boy dropped something on the floor and loudly said "Oh $hit!". His dad asked "What did you say?" and got an innocent "Oh $hit" for an answer. He looked at his wife and said "He didn't hear that from me." Wow, could that woman blush! Apparently she wasn't so careful with her language at home.

I was in the same boat. My boy has heard me say **** (I'm a ****ing auto mechanic) and he was repeating it at around 3 years old. The funniest thing is he would use it in the correct context. IE he would accidentally drop a toy and say "ah ****". At first we tried to just tell him not to say it and say something like "oh man". That didn't really work. Then If I heard him say it I would let out a stern but not yell "hey, don't say that word. It's not nice". He quit after a week or two.

Stop letting your wife tap him and be an example and wear his ass out. My youngest of 3 kids is 18, all public school and I have never heard any of them drop the F bomb.

Not saying the OP let it slip at home. But I'm noticing "free" language like that is just everyday speak with some young people who have kids nearby.

I cringe everytime I hear that when kids are near. Depending on who it is I give them a friendly reminder that little kids are around.

Anyone else notice this?

I was hoping I was going to read 3 year old Parrot.

You reap what you sow. Be better at watching yourself.
