My ds used the f bomb in context before he was 2. I just ignored it and now it's stopped .
DH was just parking the car
DH - **** it
DS - yep **** it daddy
We we just ignore it or say yes "shut it, we are going to sh-ut it"
DS was walking around about 6 months ago saying "frup" (****) quite a lot and we kept saying "yes sharp it is sharp"
I find ignoring it works the best.
I don't swear much, and try not to around the kids, but sometimes I let slip whilst driving.
Yesterday struck was turning right, but on the left side of the road. It's a really busy intersection (no traffic lights so you just have to wait) I said "fu$&ing w@nker" and my 3 yo said it several times. I just ignored but laughed about a minute later and he asked what I was laughing at and I told him I was laughing at the truck! He hasn't said it again.
I got pulled aside last week because DS said the F word at school, in class. I.was.mortified.
My 3yo DS has dropped F today, although it sounded like fudge which is what I try to say if I remember. Yesterday he was getting out of the car and dropped a car so he said "oh sh ! T"
I ignore it and it seems to work. He can be pretty cheeky so if he gets a reaction he will keep going I think.
SAgirl we're going through the exact same thing. Dd is nearly 3.
I can't see her dropping it either. So embarrassing when out 😔
The more we tell her off the more she uses it!
