My oldest DD is 4 and is in preschool but will be going to kindergarten next yr and I'm concerned about her picking up bad behavior/habits/words etc. from other children at school. She has already picked up the word stupid from a child in her pre k class. We are conservative baptist and we don't say any negative words in our home and I'm starting to realize that it's going to be difficult to keep her away from the wrong infulences. So how do you mothers do it? We can't afford the private christian schools in our area(its $470/month) and we can't afford the homeschool programs(also I'm afraid she might fall behind if we homeschool). Any advice on how you teach your children to be good christians with all the bad infulences in the world today. Thank you.

You can home school for free there are a lot of books on it. She may or may not pick up bad words you let her know it is not alright to say them. My 4 year olds learned to call things stupid in prek too. 5 mins of time out and 2 days with no TV and a very long talk later they no longer say it. I am not a christian, but I think the same thing will work for your kid too. Good luck mama.
