My ds lately has taken to swearing when ever he gets mad. This morning he called me a not so nice word. I let it go because he is diabetic and his blood sugar was 40 and I know he gets nasty and has really poor judgement when his blood sugar is that low, but I need some ideas how to nip this one in the bud. I am not having him swearing.

I really do not know about this......I never had the problem. My 2 older ones still do not cuss. Atleast not in front of me.


I have a real good friend that has a teenager that cusses. She threatens to smack him in the mouth. It shuts him up at that moment. But, he still does it!


GOOD LUCK TO YOU!

I just started a Cuss Jar 2 weeks ago. $.50 a word. Our kids have never cussed at us..like calling us a cuss word, but occasionally my ds will be talking to us and he'll say something like what the hell?

With him, it's more of the cool teenage thing to do.

That's a good idea. We will probably try that one.

I'm guilty of doing this. It's hard because it's the way you talk with you're friends (yes, that's not nice either)

My older sister has an awful mouth, and my parents let her curse, and when I do it, I get in trouble

That probably wasn't very helpful. But I like the money idea. haha

My sister had the same problem with her 14 year old son. She started taking away video games. Which ever game he liked the best, that was the one that she would take away first.

Kori cusses sometimes, but its not a constant thing for her. And its like Maggie said, they do it when they are with their friends. If she wants to cuss at home, I don't care just as long as she controls her mouth outside of the house and around other people. Her words are usually "what the hell" and "d**n it". That's about it. She knows she better not even say the "F word" around me. That's where I draw the line.
