    Default Five year old using bad language

    My 5yo ds has been using a bit of bad language lately. There was the f word a few times and I wonder if it's normal.

    I hate to have to link threads, but, maybe have another read of this?

    Please don't think that both yours and your hubby's behaviour is not rubbing off on your children.

    No, I don't think it's common at all.

    I would be horrified if one of my kids spoke to me like that.

    Ive never heard Ds 5 say anything like that, but he also doesn't go to daycare/school etc which may make a difference? He doesn't hear me swearing at any time though either & we don't have tv. I guess it would all add up?

    children learn what they live. If they are exposed to bad language either from people or from a tv screen they will repeat it. sometimes they just say words to get a response, sometimes it is because they don't know what the meaning is and they think it is 'cool' to use some words. Your response will determine how frequently the bad language is used by the little one. Yes, most children will pick up the odd bad word, but the continued use is what you have to watch for. Marie.

    Thanks Marie. My son has a health problem that causes behavioural issues so sometimes I'm not sure if it's his disease or if it's normal kid stuff. I'll focus on my language and hope his improves quickly.

    Set the example, but I also wouldn't make a big deal about it when he uses them. Kids like the reaction these words get.
