I have one hour And I don't know what to do

Ds is 3. He's just been standing and saying to his father "moms a fucking moron isn't she dad"

Now. Dh didn't answer. I'm seriously disgusted at the language and the total lack of respect, ds is supposed to be going on an Easter egg hunt in an hour, it's almost 11am, were supposed to leave at 12

My only thoughts are, he really doesn't deserve to go. Not. At all. But the woman were supposed to be doing it with is a single mother to 4 children under 5 so I feel guilty letting her down seeing as it's a planned event.

What do I do? If I take ds and not let him join in dh will go mad! I just don't know

Your three year old heard that somewhere- that's the issue you need to focus on.

Agreed. And your friend should understand. She's a mom too.

Oh I know where he heard it. And that has been resolved. Hence not focussing on that part

Your kid is 3. He doesn't understand how severely awful and disrespectful that is. Forget punishing him and punish the piece of garbage he obviously overheard saying crap like that. I'm guessing that'd be your dh...

He's just repeating. He's not voicing an original opinion. Talk to him about it and let him go.

Good guess. Which is why dh didn't respond. We had a long conversation about all the stuff he says and what ds is picking up on. It's awful!

Put him in timeout and wait for an apology. Make sure "dad" has a few words with him about how wrong it was for dad to say those words. Let son watch dad give a heartfelt apology to you as well. Once all that is done salvage your day and go on the egg hunt.

He's 3!! He's repeating what he heard! It isn't like he came up wih that on his own or even knows what he's saying. How was it resolved? What "punishment" is the person who taught him that getting? Did he hear it from his dad?

It's not just about what son is picking up on, but that no loving spouse should ever call the person they love an f'ing moron. Ever. No matter of there is an audience or not. Dad needs to model respectful behavior. He's teaching him how to treat his own future wife.
