You cant blame it completely on the child. You being his parent are responsible for his development.
Parents can only do some much. At 5 they are in pre-k or kindergarten. I know my sister-in-law had my niece and nephew in a daycare where the children there all spit and cursed. We had to explain to my nephew that his behavior was not acceptable and correct him. All while looking for a new daycare since that one had gone down hill.
To be fair, the kid is five. So he is probably at pre-school or just starting school. It's entirely possible he heard it from another parents or another kid in his class. Apparently it's not uncommon either. I remember when my daughter was in kindergarten, she learned quite a few bad words, including "fuck" and "cunt". I was horrified. I spoke to the teacher about it, and she told me that most parents come to her with the same complaint, but that it doesn't mean the parent is a failure or that they haven't taught their kid well enough. It's just an unfortunate side-effect of letting children socialize...they're going to learn good AND bad things. But it's the parent's job to teach them why they are bad words and why it's not acceptable to say them. That's up to the OP now.
Definitely start taking small privileges away and see where he learnt these words from. Maybe from school?
Wow, no respect at all! Maybe a bit of the old spanking will teach him? Try it if you haven't yet. But not too hard ofcourse.
Oh yeah 33. I was spanked as a child and I sure as hell turned out terrible! kids need to learn to respect their parents. If I had even uttered those words at that kids age or behaved like that my parents sure wouldn't have let it continue. Spanking isnt the devil. Stop acting like it is.
There's a difference between abuse and discipline. If I EVER talked like that to my father, he would've whooped my tail until it hurt to sit. And if I complained he'd make me stand facing the wall for an hour doing nothing and if I so much as TALKED I would get another hour. My father disciplined me not abused. Abuse is beating a child in the face and leaving marks like a black eye or a swollen lip. Spanking is a punishment.
76-- I think soap now is bad for you. I guess you could always use ivory soap, though. For the spanking thing, each kid is different. My kid does not respond to spanking at all, but if you isolate him, he will correct his behavior. My cousin's kid only responds to spanking. I know a kid that will stop just by telling her to.
Mama would've smacked the shit outta me i ever talked to her like that, hell, I bet she still would and I'm 20 years old. Anyway, I dont see how you can say spanking causes emotional trauma, it's worked just fine for hundreds of years with no discernable consequences and now all the sudden in the last 30 years we see a sudden rash of killings and shootouts.
Well for him to teach her the words, he had to learn them somewhere. So probably YDI OP, children will repeat anything.
By 5 children are most likely in pre-school. He could of heard it from there, and just repeated it. I hate how people assume it's from the parent. My son learned a few words when he was young. When he moved up to kindergarten he used them the first day. And, as his parent, I was literally screamed at for teaching him those words.
I'm not sure if YDI or not. It sucks that you've to deal with this but it's your responsibility to raise them so they don't turn out like that. They're not even teens yet. Just imagine. Better do something about it.
And kids are always by their parents side 100% of the time. The kids is five so he is probably in Pre-K so he probably heard it from the other kids, the parents, or even the teacher. Don't be so quick to judge the OP without knowing the whole story or all the facts. My baby cousin learned bitch in Pre-K from another little girl. Thats probably what happened here.
75 - Read 9's first sentence again.... there is no judgement there. And this really isn't an FML or a YDI, it's just a common parenting issue. Teach your kids to behave the way you think they should OP. Personally, though, I don't see what everyones' problem with "swear words" is. They're just words, if they're used offensively, then sure, be offended. But if they're used to express or emphasize an emotion, then why do you care? Here's a direct question to anyone reading this: If you do something impressive, and someone says, "That was fucking amazing!!", would you really find it offensive?
#126 its seems like a contradiction to say the parents should be on their game and that kids that age will repeat anything. Even if the parents are "on their game", they have no control over how others parent so being around kids (at daycare, school etc.) who use vulgar language would, by your explaination, cause Ops kids to use vulgar language too since they repeat anything at that age. It wouldn't be the fault of OP if that's how it happened.
