How do I stop my 4-year-old from using bad words?

I’m a little embarrassed to say it, but my son has learned curse words from my road rage. How do I teach him that they’re bad and not okay to say?

This was super tough for me - because I had to adjust to not using any bad words at all. Being a good example for your child is the best medicine for this. They copy everything they see you do, especially when they are little, and so you need to do everything you can to be a good role model for them! 0 Likes

I told my daughter that curse words are like other adult things: driving, coffee, etc. She seemed to like that I was just being honest and serious with her and she hasn’t used any bad words since we had that talk. 0 Likes
