swearing issue with toddler user banned
14th Jan '13

My toddler is swearing. Not a lot, obviously we hear him say something wrong ( like the f word) and we explain how wrong it is to say thing like that then we dont hear the word anymore. He probably gets it from the nursery so I figured I d drop by to have a word with the staff. Everyone says they never heard him swear but they'll make sure if it happens they 'll tell him not to.



Anyway, yesterday my 3yo son said in the conversation: mommy is sexy



I was like WTF... I was in shock my baby would say something like that. We tried asking him what does he mean by it and he pointed to my breast and said again sexy.



I m furious! Where does he hear/ sees things like this, I have no clue. We tried asking him again and again where Does he gets it from, who told him that, and he says he doesn't know. We asked him to explain more and all he could come up with is touching breast and saying your



Do you think it could come from other kids from nursery? Or did he see the scene between two persons?



Btw he didn't get that from tv since we only watch Disney dvds at home



And what do I say to the nursery staff
I need help

if it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck. it's a duck.
although i'm not sure how much having a chat with the staff would help.

It is probably from other children at the nursery as not all parents are vigilant about what their children watch at home. And if that really is the case there is not much you can do aside from having someone come to your home to watch your child.

Is the only place he has interaction with others outside the home at day care? I'd definitely be looking into that....... that's wrong.

I wouldnt worry that much about the swearing issue, but the "boob is sexy" part is a major problem. I'd be having a talk with the director of the daycare ASAP.

He either goes to nursery or goes with family. Even tho I highly doubt he got it from family it could still be a possibility.
We already told every family member they were as shocked as us.
I just want to protect my baby from things like this
