Absolutely horrified to hear my DS1 (3yo) telling me the newest word he learnt at daycare on Friday.
Happily sitting outside on the back deck yesterday afternoon eating iceblocks together and DS turns to me and says (warning - about to swear now). "motherf****r" I said "I beg your pardon" thinking that I really must clean the wax out of my ears as there is no way he could have said that, but sure enough he said it again.
OF course DH and I told him calmly that that was a yucky word that we didn't like and he wasn't to say it. Then I asked him who taught you that word and he said "XYZ say that to me".
XYZ is one of DS's friends at daycare (this little boy only goes 2 days per week) and almost every day that he has been there, DS will say to me "XYZ say rude words today" (in our house bum, poo and stupid all classify as rude words so he most certainly did not hear it at home) or "XYZ had timeout today in trouble" so I'd say he is a bit of a mischieveous one.
But seriously, where does a 3 year old here such a word?!?!? I am still in utter shock at hearing such a filthy word coming out of my beautiful boys mouth.
Should I raise it with the director at Childcare to see if they can perhaps talk to this boy or his parents about his language? There is no way that any of the children at this centre should be hearing this type of language. Should I bring it up, and just laugh it off as one of those funny childhood stories and let it go?
