10 year old cursing

My 10 year old seems to have really grown some courage lately. He has been spitting out curse words and become very disrespectful lately. Every time I will take away the tv, or games, or ground him...but to no avail. Thinking i need different types of discipline or a straightjacket (for myself) I need to regain control! HELP!

My daughter is right at that age too, I hope this isn't an indication of things to come! My nephews are close to this age as well. A good old classic "swear jar" works for them! Every time they say something rude or offensive within earshot, he has to put $1 in the swear jar. My brother and his wife adhere to the rule too to reinforce the importance. My nephews love their money so it works for them ;)

Best of luck!
