3 Year Old Won’t Stop Dropping F-Bombs
My friends are great parents. They’re raising two girls (10 and 7 years old) and have a son who just turned 3. Here’s the problem. They can’t get him to stop dropping the f-bomb. The more they try to get him to stop, the more he says it. The little boy’s mom told me “Aaaahh! I take back all the laughing I did at my friends who have boys back when I only had 2 girls. For the record, I also blame my husband!”
Apparently, the little guy has somehow, someway gotten into the habit of calling his mom a “F—Head” LOUDLY in public. She’s says, “It’s like it’s slow motion, when everyone looks at you to see how you react. I sort of ignore him and give him a “where’s your mother?” look as if I am the babysitter or something. No idea the proper response, because my natural reaction is wanting to say, “No, you’re a f-head…” Ah, good times!”
What about time outs? “Timeouts are usually when he says it the most. He sits on the stairs in timeout kicking the wall and saying, “fu–, fu–, fu–……” It’s hard not to laugh but it is also hard not to cry.”
We all had a good laugh about it this morning…and some listeners called in with some advice.
If you have any ideas…please leave your comment below. I’m sure she’d appreciate it!
