Quoting faerie75:My kids knew those words by then I just told them they weren't allowed to say them.
If any negative remarks are made about anyone or anything, cussing, inappropriate comments or hand gestures. I look at them and say I am sorry do not speak like that in front of me or my kids bc I am trying not to have negativity in our lives that is preventable which includes thoughts and comments out of mouths... Then smile and walk off...I am brutally honest!
I mean yes my kids have heard them and probably worse things but I want them to know yes the real world is out there - but that doesnt mean you have to listen to filthy language, or gossip or bad mouthing, complaining etc...
They know not to talk like that and at such young ages well two of mine 14 or 8 they just usually walk off and come tell me or say that they said something they didnt care to hear or be part of...lets hope that lasts throughout life.
Idk, I ask people to watch their language as a general statement when I bring DDs around (mostly family they're not normally around). If you slip up, I have MASTERED the look of death lol and folks usually apologize. Then there are those who simply love dickheadedness & embrace it like NO other! To them, I say point blank, I DO NOT want my children exposed to such language so would you please watch your mouth. Otherwise I call the girls and say come on ladybugs! That's our cue to go!
