My 3 year old son has a habit of repeating everything he hears, especially bad (swear) words. We make sure to tell him off when he swears but it is something he hears daily, so it’s to be expected. Anyway, he was playing with his big sister one day and she did some thing he didn’t like (can’t remember exactly what it was now) & his response to her was “you are a swear word now, Sissy!” My mother-in-law and myself couldn’t stop laughing! I guess he found a new approach to “swearing”. He now tells off anyone who swears or say “only adults are allowed to swear”. I hope he keeps his swear words to him self when starts kindy next year!
