So my four year old is cussing and acting really really bad but other times can be good he starts school this year though and I am worried. I know you can't spank him but he is getting out of control any ideas? When I say cuss I mean he would make a sailor blush and he is saying words his dad and I wouldn't even sayAnswer Question

I agree with April. He HAD to have picked it up from someone close to him. Cuss words aren't instinctively learned.
Spanking won't do much good. He will just be confused. It won't make sense to him that others can act this way and when he does it gets him in trouble. Be a better example to him. If you don't like him cussing then keep him away from it as much as possible. Ignore it when he does it. To him it is fun because when he says those words he gets a reaction and attention from people. Same with the other ways that he is "acting bad". Evaluate where he learned this behavior. Let him know you disapprove and it is not appropriate. Then drop it and give him no attention when he acts this way. Give positive reinforcement when he acts good.
