Reply to Bad words!

My 2 1/2-year-old now knows 4 bad words. I tried so many things to stop him from saying “oh f*#%,” among other things. What worked for me was when I got down on the floor with him, held his hand, and said that Grammy, Oma, or anyone he adores, would be very sad if he said that bad word to them. It took a few tries, but it really helped! Now, he’ll just say “bad word” instead of actually saying a bad word. There are still some slip-ups, but it’s been a major improvement!
