Since my Ds has started nursery everyones a stupid or a baby or an idoit. really driving me nuts.
Knows when to test me too. Like today sitting in dentist waiting room full of people he starts kicking the glass door. im like please ds can you sit nicely. ds says No you idoit. i could feel the whole room looking at me. just kept repeating himself. good boy rest of time. tryed witholding treats, putting to bed.softly softly approach. stuck now. please tell me this is a phase. sad

ignore ignore ignore.

soon gets boring

he knows it's wrong already so doing it for attention.

v. trying (we get 'go away' all the time and makes me want to shout!)

I don't ignore, because it's not his fault if he's saying something he's heard and I don't want him to feel rejected [big girl's blouse]

I say "Oh no, I don't like that word" and "You have lots of lovely words you can use instead, lets think of a really good one you can say when you are cross" or whatever

It's a phase. As long as you don't make any reaction it will stop. Don't do what I did and fall over laughing when your generally angelic two year old shouts out 'oh fuck' when she stubs her toe because she heard mummy say it when she did the same thing blush

we saw an older gentleman training for the marathon running down a city street in bare feet a la Zola Budd...

DS (3) looked out of the car window and said, with feeling, "silly old bugger"


ignore it I say even when suffocating yourself trying not to laugh
