Punish the dad or your DS? If it's the dad, withold sexual favours.....

Your ds is just copying words he's hearing. Does he even realize they are bad words? It will be very confusing for him if you punish him for saying these words while encouraging him to learn others. I think you need to talk to your DP about him reining in his language - and I know thats difficult, my language is awful but I am very aware that if my ds starts using it I have noone to blame but myself

I agree, you cant punish a two year old for saying what he is hearing around him...thats how they learn!

My son started swearing about that time (he had heard a girl at nursery say a rude word and I was mortified) and once he realised I didnt like it he said it even more. I was so stressed about it cos we do not swear generally but I found the best thing to do was to ignore it.

If DS doesnt want him to swear then he needs to watch what he says infront of him ....
