  • Stop swearing yourself? Don't watch shows or movies that there is swearing on? Your child is hearing it from someone or somewhere and thinks it's ok to swear. Take that out of the picture and they will stop.

  • It should start by you and other adults around him to stop swearing. Children learn by example ya know!!
