Re: How to stop 2 year old from swearing!

The thing that has worked best for us is just to tell the kids that those are words we don't use in our family, but that other people think those words are OK to use and they will hear them and they are not to repeat them. And then let it go. If you make a huge fuss over it, he will only do it more because he's getting attention from it.

When my kids hear a word they know we aren't allowed to use, they get very upset and say "Mommy! Did you hear that? We don't use that word in our family" and I say yes, you're right and then drop it. If you don't make a big deal out of it, then they won't either. Good Luck! I think all parents go through this phase and just pray our children won't swear in public
