I have 3 kids home sick from school today, and I have to say... If I hear the word WOOOOOW one more time Im going to snap! Omg I so love my children but I completely HATE the word Wow, misused!





wow

1    [wou] Show IPA Informal .



interjection

1.

(an exclamation of surprise, wonder, pleasure, or the like): Wow! Look at that!



Why do my children think this is the word to use when they want to show disappointment, or disgust? I just spent 3 minutes giving all my children the definition of this word. For my own sanity I hope they stop misusing this word!



What are your pet peeves when it comes to your childrens choice of word use?

You would totally hate it, since I do the exact same thing. LOL!!!



The only word I can think of is Ain't. There is no use or need for that word in the English language.

Yes why seems to be the word my three year old comes out with whenever I ask her to do something.



She has also learnt the word "Pardon" and says it all the time so I have to keep repeating myself. As she has had constant ear infections it has become habit for her. I suppose I should count myself lucky she does not say"what"!
