My 6yr. old came home from school today and told my hubby he is a F$%k head. I don't know if he knows if that is a bad word or not. I talked to him about it, that he can't cuss its a bad word, IF he uses that word again he will not be watching tv for the whole day?
Should I do more? Do you have any good ideas on how to deal with kids cussing?

That's probably enough. He knows now that it is a bad word and what will happen next time he says it. That's what I did and that was the end of it.

Our children are like sponges:they absorb the good as well as the bad. For right now the taking away of something he likes is fine. But if he continues give his butt a spanking as a reminder that saying words like those have painful conseqences.
