View Full Version : Child swearing

02-03-2012, 12:55 PM

I've got a 3 year old mindee who has been with me for almost 4 weeks, this morning he swore at another mindee (his younger sister).

How would you approach a parent with this? (she's a good friend of mine).

Any advice much appreciated!

Just advise what you had heard and how you dealt with it.

My own child learnt to say F off at a previous nursery as an elder brother who dropped a sibling off used to swear lots. We just ignored it as we found that when we made a big deal of it, my own child then knew it was a naughty word and found it funny to say it - when it was ignored, they soon got bored.

Ive had an older mindee swear and they have been pulled to one side and a quiet chat has been had about acceptable language.

I just say 'We dont use those words in this house'

If it continues then mention to parent.

I would mention it in their home setting diary and just say "We dont use that word here"
