What does one do to stop ones son from finding everything bodily funny at innapropriate times! He talks about farting and pooping and he said shit yesterday. He takes great delight in sticking his finger in his sisters bums and trying to touch their fanny's. When playing games he calls people "loser" and generally becomes quite embarissing. My attempts to chastise him are met with laughs and even time out and a hiding following if he does not comply get met with either more laughter or a full blown throw down temper tantrum. I try to walk away when this happens, but it does not solve the problem.
He is an extremely strong minded individual which I know will stand him in good stead when he is older, but my attempts at raising a son with empathy are being thwarted.
What the heck do I do?
