As a nanny the 6 year old learnt the word b*tch from school and taught it to his 2 year old brother - when I heard him teach it to his younger sibling I told him off (as I'd told him the previous few days it was a nasty word and to not copy the boy from school) and then I put him to bed immediately and he stayed their all night, I took away toys and books so he was in his room alone with nothing. It shocked him and his little brother into never saying it again!

Stop swearing in front of them and get your family and friends to stop swearing in front of them. I'm the swear nazi. I don't let my friends or family swear in front of DS. Sometimes they slip, of course, but I get them to apologize for being naughty if DS hears them.

I think it's just a matter of teaching them its adult words. We all slip from time to time.

Hmm....this is my biggest fear.
Of course hubby & I might accidentally drop an f bomb while driving or of something frustrated us.
We try not to in front of DD aged 2 but we aren't perfect.
To date, she hang said it.
But I'm sure she will pick up on it some day. If not from us by accident, it will be from a friend who drops it, the TV or other kids. I'm sure other kids at day care, kindergarten or primary school probably say these things when she attends.
I'm not sure how I would handle it, probably just explain it's not a nice thing to say. And not give her a huge reaction.

Don't taboo words and they'll lose interest when they don't garner the attention it usually provokes.

DS went through a phase of swearing when he learned a few choice words at kinder. The more I carried on and told him off, the more he got off on my reaction and the more he did it. In the end I had to just ignore it and he eventually stopped. He's now 6 and barely swears at all.
