If you can't handle a child who's just learning to speak with redirection, rewards, and physically moving them if need be, you really fail at parenting. I never had to even swat mine--she was the best-behaved kid in her classroom, and she's got her AA as she's graduating high school. I'm sorry your parents didn't put any time into you, but that's part of the whole 'parenting' gig.
#35 if you don't discipline the child for saying some thing he's not supposed to, he might grow up to be a stubborn and extremely rebellious child. However I do agree that the parent should just do a quick bop on the mouth and full fledged smack the one who taught the kid it. Honestly I don't get why people think swat to a child means hitting him to the next town, not like a small bop to the mouth or top of the head. Sure as heck worked for me.
exactly Just teach the child that it's not OK to say that. I never understood why people found it cute or okay for children to say bad words. My sister's friend says 'F*** you' to his niece and she sticks up the middle finger and says it back. that's not attractive of him to teach her that. She's only like 3 or 4!
It could be worse. If anyone else hears it, you can turn "shit" into "chips" or something... Maybe. Kids don't speak that clearly at first anyway
I take it since you said "first real sentence", your son isn't old enough to be told something isn't okay to say? I'm sorry OP, that sounds really horrible, but also kind of funny. :) I'm sure it won't last for a long time, he'll find something else to say.
