Most of the time I’m a very level-headed, calm, and collected parent. Lately, however, I have been at a complete and utter loss. My two year old son is in my eyes an angel; he’s sweet, charming, and very polite, BUT he has a horrible potty mouth.

I will be the first to admit that the first time Gaige heard and repeated the F word I thought it was the end of the world, but I did secretly laugh about it (oh don’t you dare judge me…it was funny). The F Bomb was a phase that passed very quickly (thank goodness) but now Bub has a new bad word of choice and it has me pulling my hair out! So what is Bub’s new cuss word? God D#$m! Of all the cuss words he had to choose that one?!? Now I have to take some of the blame for it because I am the only one in my house who ever uses it (again stop judging, it’s very rare that I say it and besides my bad word of choice is the fuck).

I have tried everything under the sun to get him to stop saying it; time out (BIG, HUGE joke), a smack on the bottom, hot sauce in his mouth (he laughs and says he wants more)…I am completely out of options and I need help!

Has anyone else had this problem? How did you manage to flush the potty mouth?


  1. Uh oh! Hopefully he'll forget it by the time he starts school!

  2. The only advice I have is to control your own tongue. I tend to forget my kids are in the car with me and let them hear things on the radio that they shouldn't so I feel your pain. I've even been known to let it fly myself from time to time. You just have to remember that they're listening.

  3. Ali- I so hope he does, it seems to get worse every day and I'm just at a total loss as far as what I should do.

    Cindy- That's probably a big part of the problem, I tend to get upset and let the F Bomb fly and I know I shouldn't but it happens. I DO need to watch my mouth though maybe it will discourage him to do so!

    Thanks guys!

  4. Oh boy we had this problem with Cole then he said it once at school and lord be with me. Now if I hear it I take away toys and things he really loves. :)


Can you relate? Well let me know about it!
