Re: Bad words and my 2 year old Toddler??

my 2.5yo said it a couple times. I blame tv (my dad and his dad watch horrible tv when he's around and I tell them repeatedly NOT TO ) I redirected it with "foot" but he said "no mama not foot F***" and he seems to use it at the right moments too!

I just tell him "please don't say that it's not nice", it seems to work just fine. If he says it again he gets a time out. I know people say to ignore it and I do for the most part, I treat his timeout as a "not listening" timeout. I asked not to say that not nice word and you didn't listen so now you get a timeout for not listening.

Try "correcting" his pronunciation so he's saying another word. Maybe truck? Luck? Duck?

DS used to throw up his hands and say 'Jesus!' in an exasperated voice (thanks Mom!) and within a week we had changed it to 'cheese whiz!'
That's what I was going to say! My dd learned sh*t (um, from me...), but we helped her switch to shoot pretty easily.

Yeah ds has been using it at the right moments too He has been saying Frog after I redirect him but he still saying the F word then I redirect and he changes it to frog sigh hopefully he forgets it in a couple of weeks.

Re: Bad words and my 2 year old Toddler??

i have no advice, sounds like your handling the situation well, hopefully with a little more redirection he will forget about it all together.

The boy (aged 3) i used to nanny for would say the word sh!t in the right context, as in "the dog just took a Sh!t on the carpet" cant really ignore that one :P

Re: Bad words and my 2 year old Toddler??

Ok, I accidentally taught my DD a lovely word once. The next time I said it her presence I hauled off and soundly slapped myself. There was quite a look of shock, and I looked at her and said "mommy shouldn't say that word". That almost completely solved it. Then I told her if she ever said that she would go to time out. Next time she said it, I pointed to time out and told her to go and that's not a word she's allowed to use. We don't have a problem anymore.

lol

Sunday I grabbed my three year old a t shirt and she told me, "I want the pink one. Not the purple one. I not want to wear that damn shirt, mommy." Oh how I wanted to laugh! She used it perfectly.

Re: Bad words and my 2 year old Toddler??

We just went through this.

We almost hit a tree in someone's yard when we hit a patch of ice a couple of months ago & DH said "OH F***" as we were careening toward our deaths. DS1 clung to that word...that exact phrasing actually...for quite a while. We tried telling him not to use it but that didn't work. We tried ignoring it, didn't work either. Finally we started using "OH Truck!" & for some reason that stuck. He only said the F word a couple of times after that & has pretty much stopped saying "Oh Truck" now as well, but once in a while in a sheer fit of frustration he'll yell out "Oh Truck" & it's pretty much the funniest thing in the world.

My little guy (just turned 2) also never forgets anything! He's picked up on the F word too

I say "for pete's sake" a lot and that IS funny when he repeats it. Right now we're still just ignoring the F word. I don't want to make a big deal of it because he is just smart as a whip and with cling to it more if we focus on it I think.
