A girl on my Facebook posted a video of her toddler swearing and she was laughing at it thinking it was funny. She said she doesn't care if he swears cause they are just words. I was quite shocked. Do you let your toddler or kids swear?
Hell NO!!!! It is not funny or appropriate. Yes both DH and I swear, him more than me but we try our hardest to never do it around our children. And if you do one of the kids or one of us will say "daddy/mommy that's a bad word you don't say that"
I don't swear. I believe in teaching my kids the power of words, and that 99% of the time, other words are more apt and better at expressing themselves. However, they ARE just words, so if my toddler does use them I'm not going to punish them. I'm going to explain why those words are not the best to be used.
I don't encourage it but if he says an explicit word I can only blame myself. I just tell him it's a bad word and let him know Mommy is a bad girl for saying it (in the past). I won't lie and say I don't laugh when all is said and done esp when he uses it in the right context
Yes. Idc I feel the same way. I wouldn't post a video laughing about it because that's NOT treating them like normal words.
I swear like a sailor so I can't yell at my 2 yr old for thinking it's normal...
