Is this a rite of passage, or cause for concern?
Momlogic's Julie: This weekend, my five-year-old dropped something and said "SH*T!"
We had made the unfortunate mistake of allowing her to watch part of "Yes Man." We turned it off after the first curse word ... but apparently we were too late!
I couldn't believe such a word came from my daughter's mouth!
I asked her if she said a bad word, and she said she didn't know.
Then I told her I heard her say it, and she burst into tears.
I remember the day I said my first curse word vividly. I was also 5. I was in my mom's car on the way home from the laundromat, and the laundry basket spilled. I said "SH*T!" as loud as I could, and my mom stopped the car so fast and told me that was NOT an appropriate word.
Have your kids ever said a curse word? How did you handle it?
