I can't seem to get my 4 year old to stop saying stupid. I was so embarrased at church today when he said "ha ha that's stooopid" :( I took him to the side & sternly told him that it is SO not nice to use that word & i was not going to listen to him say it again. I bet he's saying it at preK, i'm going to check with the teacher to see if she's heard him saying it. I know he's really picking up what everyone around him says, if i'm on the phone..he's hearing me so i've really tried to not say stupid (so hard sometimes)
sigh
any ideas mommas? Thanks

What's he watching on TV? Some of those kids programs use this word, he might be picking it up from there too.

Ignore it. I know it sounds so trite, but ignore it. The more attention you give to it the more he is going to say it.
