So we’re all sitting on the couch when my daughter gets up and goes to the pantry and gets out candy… so I tell her “no, we’re about to have dinner”. So she gets mad, like any normal toddler, and then turns around and says “ASSHOOOOOOLE”.
I’m going to have to hurt my husband :/ God help him if she says it again.

Im sorry…. but I totally laughed.

Ha! I think that’s pretty cute, actually.

Though he’s probably not scarring her for life. My Dad has been cursing like a sailor around us since we were little kids. We’ve turned out very foul-mouthed but otherwise pretty well-adjusted.

OMG the name of this thread scared me. I’m glad this is all it was! Sorry, I’m laughing, too. 🙂

Heh, that’s awesome. Don’t tell her I said that, though. 😉

I don’t talk like that so I know she learned it from him and his loudmouthed friends. Ugh, if she says it in front of my mom over Christmas, God help me! lol it is kinda funny but at the same time it would be so humiliating if she said it in front of ANYBODY I know.
I think it runs in the family because my husbands mom told me his first word was sh*t. Super classy…

OMG! I’m sorry, I’m sure you weren’t amused, but that made me burst out laughing.
FI and I were at Target a few weeks ago looking at Christmas decorations. We were deliberating between an angel or a star for the top of our tree, when all of a sudden we hear this tiny little girl yell, “Shut the f*@$ up!”. I was so shocked that I turned, mouth open, and just stared for a second. Then she said it again!! And then her mother reached over and smacked her.
So I guess there’s a silver lining… At least your kid didn’t drop an f-bomb in public. 😉

Oh I’m sorry. I know, not from personal experience, that it’s mortifying when your kids start repeating foul language. You might want to talk with the husband about it. He probably understands why you want to nip this in the bud.
If it’s any consolation, when I was a young toddler I told my mother to fuck off, then turned and ran because I knew it was bad! She said she was SO mad that all she could do was sit me in my room and leave me there. It was not a habit I continued though, and I even was a “bad word police” member as a child telling my mother that shut up was a bad word.

Haha! This reminds me of me when I was younger. Apparently my 2-year-old self called my godfather an SOB. Oops 🙂 Anyway, I turned out a decent, well-adjusted human being. Sure, I’m profane sometimes, but my filter works when it needs to.

I have to admit I laughed in relief because of the thread title
that said, I suggest a good old fashioned sit down with the hubby about it and then talk to your little one as well. Im not sure what my parents used to do, but Im pretty sure putting me in the corner for an hour usually worked to keep me deterred from doing it again (I was really restless as a kid so it was torture for me!) lol Anyways Im sure it’ll work out 🙂

Haha! I’m glad that was all this was about – the thread title had me worried.
My mom said that when I was little a was building a lego tower and accidently knocked it over. She said I immeadiately yelled “Damn Shit!” and started picking it back up. She said she was so confused as to why I would actually put those two words together (she knew her and my dad had slipped on occasion and said one or the other around me – but never would they have used them together like that).

Both of my nieces were swearing early. One, around age four, called someone a “stupid f*@k” when someone cut my sister off in a parking lot. The other would say “shit” everytime she dropped something. That started EARLY! lol

That word is used so frequently in the everyday world – she might not have picked it up from them!
If it makes you feel better, my nephew’s toy stopped working when we were all out to dinner, and he said, at age 3, “It’s f*cking broken!”. What 3-year-old knows how to use that correctly in a sentence?! And, none of us really swear, and especially not with that word (especially not around him!). He definitely just picked it up like a sponge from “out there”!

Over the summer when I was working in a different childcare center than my normal home base I had a three year old call me a dummya$s and another three year old tell me she was gonna kick my a$s. Slightly funny but I see how it can take you off guard. Atleast you realize this is something that needs to be fixed- not all parents even get to that point.
