Ds aged 5 had started swearing. Just the odd word every now and than. How is the best way to handle it? I have reprimanded him and he gets really upset. However, he also had the argument is that daddy says it. I have asked dh not to swear in fromt of children but it does still happen.
Any tips?

If your DH swears in front of them you will have an exceptionally hard time getting them not to swear. However, exclamations and emphases are a normal part of speech, so you could come up with inoffensive terms that your DS could use (we were always allowed to use 'blast' for example, and my brother came up with 'oh plums!' by himself)

Thank you. Yes it is hard trying to justify it. That is a good tip. Thank you.
