The ice bucket challenge video. (Don't think I have seen a thread about it)

I just don't find it funny and I think it's quite disgusting that a child of that age (no older than 4) would say "fucking hell"

YADNBU - yuk! Haven't seen it though and don't think I want to.

I agree

Apparently that means we have no sense of humour hmm

Yanbu. It's a shocking video.

yanbu. I have a dreadful potty mouth (F and C everything given the chance or when I'm alone) but I've managed to only say 'crap' once in front of the dc's over the years.

I agree. I hate things like that.

Mixed. Not nice to put it on FB, especially if the child says this stuff often. We do laugh now though about when our toddler swore at another family once when he was 2 or 3. It was so random and unexpected. We were shocked at the time though and mortified.

Saw it today.
Very sad sad

I mentioned it on another thread this afternoon.

It's not funny at all.

Eurgh, saw that,not remotely funny

Sounds vile. I love a wee swear but children swearing is absolutely awful.

When I was a teen one of my toddler cousins was encouraged to show off her party piece which was to say "fuck the pope and my daddy's a drunken bastard"

I will have outed myself to any family as it went down in history - either with those who thought it was hilarious or those of us who were stunned

How strange, i literally just saw this on facebook.

I laughed.

I completely get that children will pick up words from anywhere, so even if you don't swear in front of them they can still pick it up from other sources (other children, school, tv)

The thing is you can hear whoever filmed her laughing and they posted it too so they must think it's hilarious. I'd be mortified if my child did that.

I think it's funny.

Then again, it's not my kid. grin

Sparklypants Tue 26-Aug-14 22:12:58

I'm also a bit of a swearer but seeing/hearing small kids do it is nasty.

I try really hard to not swear In front of my dc but it has happened in the past...my dd is 17 and still doesn't swear in front of me. DS is 3 and time will tell (gulp)

I have to admit to laughing - she is a bright young thing and very articulate for her age. But ultimately it is shit to be "proud" enough to post this on FB. I

Funny, there was a thread on here a few weeks ago where mumsnetters were gleefully relaying their funniest 'my child swore' stories. No cats bum mouths at all on that thread!

Dubjackeen Tue 26-Aug-14 22:16:12

No, didn't like it either.
I'm on another forum and on one thread where people were posting about funny things their child said, someone posted about their toddler swearing. I just don't get it.

I laughed but if my DD did it, I'm not sure I'd post it on FB.

I haven't seen this video. It doesn't sound funny. Occasionally it can be funny - I'm thinking where a child has picked something up from god knows where and the parents stand there open mouthed in mortification. A child who habitually swears though? No.

Delphiniumsblue Tue 26-Aug-14 22:18:15

I don't find it funny.

OneSkinnyChip Tue 26-Aug-14 22:19:10

I was a bit shock and I swear like a sailor blush

Sparklypants Tue 26-Aug-14 22:19:26

I just watched it (I've been avoiding all of the ice bucket vids). The way the little girl said it was completely normal, like its a part of her normal vocabulary.

Not nice and nothing to be proud of.

I laughed too. Probably because I really wasn't expecting it.
Certainly wouldn't have shared it if it was my child.
