Young children use curse words because of the reaction they get from other children and adults. (They have no idea what the words mean.) The best response is to say firmly and calmly something like," That's a bad word that people don't want to hear. You are not to say it in school, but you can say it when you are alone in your room or bathroom." Never, ever put soap or Tabasco sauce in your child's mouth. That form of punishment causes children to become fearful, confused, angry and lowers self-esteem. It sounds like your son is reacting to your recent separation and could use some extra TLC. If problems continue consider counseling. www.filedby.com/author/linda_griffin/1127154/
