Kids who curse

I just came from this household with a 3 year old son. I say "household" instead of "friend's house" because I don't consider these people friends of mine. While I was there the mom was giving him his dinner and a few minutes later her husband walked in the door. The boy wasn't eating his food, just kind of playing with it, and her husband laughingly went, "What do you say when you don't like the food?" and the little boy went, "This is bulls***!" and they all fell over laughing. ?!?!?!?!?!!?!?! I didn't think it was funny AT ALL. My sister has 2 young boys in school and she was telling me they have problems with very small children walking around and saying cuss words......I wonder which kids bring those words to school?? Has anyone seen anything like this? Do you have friends who actually TEACH a baby to cuss??

I do not think parents actually teach their kids to cuss but the kids hear other kids cursing and that is how they pick it up. When kids cuss, it seems like other kids will join in and start cussing as well. They may also get the cussing from tv shows as it seems like there is more and more cursing on television as well. I think they need to reduce the amount of cussing on tv and something should be done at the schools to eliminate the fowl language.

You're right, Kgwat, I think kids join in with other kids who cuss. Television is definitely a HUGE influence too. I really wish they would reduce the amount of cussing on TV. I think people would be shocked at how much that would make a difference!
