Language, language

Do you watch what you say in front of your kids?  Did you always, or did you start doing it once you realized they were actually listening?  This mom didn’t think her son was listening, and check out the results.  Yikes.  I would be uncomfortable in the car with her speaking like that…with or without a child in the car.

We really make it a point not to use bad language at all, but to be honest, it does come out on rare occasion.  But, not in front of the kids.  They really do hear it all…and they will repeat it.  Fortunately, the girls haven’t heard, or repeated anything bad out of my mouth or Mr. Serious’.

One time, however, Aunt Emily had the oldest in the car with her.  A woman cut her off, and she momentarily forgot she had a little passenger in the car and called the woman a b!tch.  Well, guess who repeated it?

Fortunately, Aunt Emily was quick thinking and said “no, silly, we aren’t going to the beach.”  And, thank goodness it was never repeated again.

Just as I tell my students, it’s much easier for bad language to slip out if you use it all the time!

  1. I don’t curse. My husband does and boy does my son repeat. But, my husband managed to get him out of saying those things. Now, if my son hears anything similar to sh&*, he says, what did you say, and tells my husband not to say it.

  2. Oops! Good thing I had a quick recovery or this could have been another ‘Aunt Emily got into some trouble’ post! I sure miss the girls! I want to have a sleep over again.

  3. LOL that’s too funny! I don’t swear (ok maybe once in a blue moon :)) but even some other words like shutup, hate, frickin’ you gotta be careful with cause they do pick it up and it only takes once. Why do kids always seem more prone to picking up bad words than good words? 🙂

    The second she was born we tried to stop. And it’s worked. There have been a few slips but explaining to Karys it’s a bad word has worked. Now if she hears anyone say something bad she makes them apologize. To her nonetheless! No potty language in our house!

    Once I dropped something and said, “Crap!” before I realized what I was saying. My then 2-year-old repeated it, in the same tone, and so I quickly said, “Crash! It crashed!” So she’d go around saying that instead. 🙂 Close call!
