Kids and Their Language
Here I am blogging yet another post about my dear sweet S. He has been so good today. You can tell he's really trying to be a good boy and change his behavior. A little while after he got home from school I asked him to empty his backpack and show me his papers. He came into the room waving his homework back and forth that he forgot to turn in. As he was waving it, he was saying, "Damn, damn, damn, damn" in such an innocent little voice. It totally caught me off guard, because this is NOT language we use in our home. I asked him what he said and he shrugged his shoulders and said "Damn". I then told him that we don't use that kind of language and that is was an ugly word. He said okay and then turned to me again and asked, "Is that kind of like when I said hell?" I told him yes and that those were both words we don't use. It's amazing how quickly kids pick things up. When I called DH to tell him, he was cracking up on the phone. I can just see him coming home and asking S to tell him the whole story just so he can hear him say those words.
