Alright, my stepdaughter is at the wonderfula ge of bathroom humor. Poop, butts, burps, farts, and all of that fun stuff.
TO a certain extent it is a deelopmental thing, and she is not swearing or anything, but it is also not appropriate nor something I want her thinking is funny.
My Fiance and I both are consistent with not laughing at any of the jokes, and we hae taken the approach that she will learn what is funny based on what people laugh at. We don’t punish her unless she continues extensiely with the humor after we have asked her not to. We would also draw the line if it was a completely inappropriate situation like someone else’s home etc.
This seems to be working so far.
I am curious where other mothers’ lines are with potty humor? Do you punish them every time, or only in certain instances? Or not at all?
What has worked best with your children?
And for those of you with kid’s older than this, when do children grow out of it?
