  • Tell the parent.. but if you are close to this cousin, I see no problem in telling the child that it is not nice to say those bad words.

  • Nothing. It's his parents fault he cusses and mine knows not to cuss just because someone else does.

  • What can you do? The child does not even know what he or she is saying.

  • Bring it up with my kids (later, out of earshot) that I am glad they know not to use those words.

  • well, it seemed like he knew what he was saying because he used it at the right moment LOL. mine knows not to cuss, but when the 3 yr old keeps saying it over and over and in front of other people too... that's embarrassing to me

  • My daughter just recently turned 3 and right before her birthday she picked up on one of my words damn it. She was saying at the right times too. I was embarresed when she said this infront of people and did my best to stop her EVERY time she said it. If some one asked I would tell them the truth. (Usually they would hear her and I wouldn't and they would tell me they thought she just said it) It was embarassing but I took it in stride and kindly let them know I was working on getting her to stop. After almost a month she no longer said it!
