SOAP lol like old days and the nine year old should be grounded or something big taken away from him every time he does it and the 5 and 3 year old can geta time out or spanken which ever you do and a toy taken away.

Do you use language like this around them or there father. If they hear it they will use it too. The only thing you can do with the older one is use a swear box that he has to put 50p of his pocket money into. He will soon stop if he loses his money. Make a reward chart for the younger ones and give them a treat if you go 10 days with no bad words. There is nothing worse than a child with a potty mouth. Stamp it out now. Don't let anybody swear around your child and if they do make a big thing out of saying that was a bad word and not one that was nice. you have a battle on your hands here good luck.
