Curses Like A Sailor!


I saw this picture on the Facebook this week.  Even though it doesn’t list any of the studies that support this finding – if it is on the internets than its true.  Well, its true to me anyway.  That’s all that matters?  Right.

So the question is:  Is it OK for my 2 year old to curse like a sailor?   Based on those human behavioral “studies” people who swear are more honest and trustworthy.   Those are two qualities that I would like my sons to have.

I am by no means condoning children swearing.  I’ll be the first to admit that swearing can be vulgar even in adults.  I swear, but children shouldn’t.

As from a previous post, you should know that “Puck”  is D’s favorite word right now.   I know he has heard it from me a few times. OK, maybe more than a few.   He really took a liking to the word when he heard it used in a song his daddy thought the kids would like about a sick pony.  (Ween – ” Mister Would You Please Help My Pony”)     My children’s favorite line is “I think he’s lung is pucked up.”  The only bright side to all of this is that D isn’t able to say F and says P instead.

Since originally the response my kids got was laughter from their father when they sang that line a few times, they love to sing it over and over again.   I try to only show a negative reaction to them, but it doesn’t stop them.

Since using the “P” word, D likes to use it in other instances.   He actually uses it in the proper context.  I have to give him some credit.  For a 2 year old that’s pretty good.  Right?

I know, I know.  He’s 2 not 22.

But I want him to be trustworthy and honest. . .
