so i woke up this morning to my lil man on my belly saying fffffffffff ffffffff smurf! he is 8 months old... i know where he learned it. already working on fixing that but how do i fix my son from saying it? any advice?
My niece picked up some cuss words to when she first started talking.
The best thing we figured out to do was just ignore it and act like it was no big deal.
Don't freak out and get mad, don't laugh, just completely ignore it.
When ever we would freak out or people would laugh she would realize it was a special word that got her extra attention so she would say it again and again.

I was told that its easier to tell young kids that bad words are for adults and there not to use them until there older rather then saying no cause it makes them want to do it more then, so maybe tell him it's an adult word and he can't use it until he's older?
With my 3-year-old, I try not to make a big deal out of it or draw attention to it, like the first poster said. If they get a response out of you that will just encourage them more. If mine persists I just calmly explain that it is not a nice word, but don't get upset or anything. I then find that not only will he not say it again, but I'll get called out the next time he catches me or hubby saying it
Quoting Lizplustwo:" Probably not...at that point it's probably best to just ignore it. He's too little to realize it's a bad word, but if it doesn't get any kind of reaction from you he'll probably stop."
thank you... i will try this and hopefully it works
