My 3 year old

He has recently learned a new bad word. I don't cuss, so he didn't learn it from me. My husband will occasionally slip up though. He starts school in less than three weeks. How do I make it stop? I've tried ignoring it but that doesn't work.

I explained to my daughter that that is a grown up word that she can use when she gets older. 

It was never a problem again.

I just explain to my kids it's a grown up word and we don't use it. Along with stupid and the r word. My kids even at 7 slip sometimes they get a warning and then move on. I never gotten past the warning stage. Just gotta remind them what is good and bad language.

I'll give it a try, I just don't want my kid to be the one teaching all the other kids at school bad words lol.

I told my daughter she's a really smart kid, but using certain words make people think she's not so smart so she might not want to use them. Totally worked.

Get dh involved. During dinner conversation have one of you say it and then you both need to make it a big deal that you dont say that word. Get ds involved in the conversation about it being a not nice word. Then make the offender say sorry and promise not to say it again. It has to be a team effort and thisbis one of those situations where I find kids learn better from example than explanation.
