    Default Swearing 2 year old = bogan parents?

    If you encountered a 2.5yo who said f***, would you think the parents were bogan or generally undesirable?

    I mean the child just saying it as a random word, not in anger or as an insult.

    I'm on my phone, otherwise I would add a poll.

    Did the kid say it once? Or says it on a regular basis?

    I don't think that anyone who swears is necessarily a bogan.

    not bogan or undesirable but that the parents just dont care what their child repeats as they might be really great people and parents but just have a massive potty mouth so to say and the child repeats what is heard.

    also wanted to add that i know a few people who swear alot around their kids. they are all really good parents and some of their kids will repeat the swearing and others wont.

    meh .. at that age I might be a little taken aback .. but kids younger than say .. four .. are often just testing words out .. exploring their vocab and even looking for a reaction..

    I know that I was at my son's godmother's house when he started saying the F word ... over and over .. I was gobsmacked (DH says it when he plays his computer game) - Jack and I had a big chat about how it was a grown up word, and mummy is sad when you say it .. and he stopped .. *shrugs*

    I guess it depends highly on the context ...

    I wouldn't think that much of it. There would possibly be LOTS of people in the childs life, and who knows WHERE they picked it up, and in one instance you'd have no idea how often they used it.

    2.5yo's are unpredictable and GREAT at doing things in the wrong place at the wrong time!

    I'm about to go to bed, but I should avoid being disingenuous by saying it's my son.

    I swore in the car last week and he repeatef it. I said nothing but days later, he said it once. Then once a day for several days, then nothing yesterday or today.

    I am being very careful now with swearing.

    But I'm terrified he'll say it at the park or daycare or swimming lessons and peope will think terribly of us. As in, I'm really on edge.

    Was he saying F*** or was he saying truck? A lot of kids say F*** when there saying truck. I wouldn't think any thing about it.

    Oh no. I said 'truck' and he corrected me. I then quickly changed the subject.

    The thing is I quite like swearing, but recognise that children don't know how to pick their timing.

    No,because my 2.5yo says F#cking.And we are not bogans.
    I swear alot haha he never says f#ck.Just f#cking -so weird.
    And he goes through phases,I ignore it now because he only ever does it for a reaction,not as part of his vocab.
    Whereas my 5yo never swears.
    I know heaps of lovely people who happen to swear.Doesnt make you a bogan IMO
