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?
