Oh my 2 1/2 yr old loves that word . My dh has a mouth on him and will also have stuff on the tv that the little shouldn't hear. So, in addition to washing dh's mouth out with soap (jk), I am working with ds. It's hard at this age bc if you overreact he will amp it up, and he doesn't fully understand. I have taken to calmly isolating him for a min (taking him to the stairs- he can still see everyone- and telling him he has to sit there if he is going to talk like that). Sometimes successful, sometimes not.
Jul, This used to be a great place
