I almost freaked out yesterday when Jakub uttered the four-letter-word: “F**k”. I thought to myself, “Goodness, did he hear me say that word? Has he been watching too much TV? Did his dad say it? ” It has been my policy in this family not to say those words in front of Jakub. I want to raise a well-mannered, polite and well-behaved child. I don’t want him to have a foul mouth.
Then, he did it again this morning. This time, he was pointing to his books. I didn’t make a big deal out if it so he will think it’s not a real word and will soon forget it. As I was reading his picture books with him, it became increasingly clear where the word came from.
He simply combined “frog” and “duck” , and came up with “f**k”. Kids do say the darnest things!
