Anyhow depending on the tone/use i don't like my 5 yo calling people bum heads if she is doing it to insult them even though it wouldn't be considered a mature swear word. Luckily she isn't yet exposed to shi.t.head, ar.se.hole, f-words but I expect she will start hearing them when she goes to school next year.

We 'kind of' do the 'big people words' thing here too... but more from the angle that - unless they know what it means and can use it in context/a sentence - then they have no need to be using it.
They have heard DP and I swear at times - I'm not AGAINST swearing! - I definitely think it has it uses - but there is a time and place.
DS1 -6 and DD - also 5 'get this' and will dob on DS2 when he says it..think that is part of the trouble..he is a comedian - who thrives on attention and reaction.
He isn't directing the words AT anyone in particular, he is just saying them, repeatedly in one of those annoying sing-song ways that kids do
It's definitely a personality thing with him.
Cheers for the replies.
