Who you praise to all your friends as the smartest most loving caring child, who never gives you a gray hair, nor does something wrong, says at thanksgiving dinner he/she would love it if you passed the ********** mashed potatos. Whatever do you do as a modern 21st century parent?

My son has tourettes and autism, so this is a normal occurrence. With him, I ignore him completely, and don't acknowledge him or the behavior (trust me it works with him). You react to it, he escalates.

My daughter has repeated what my son says, I tell her that it's not appropriate words. If she does it again, I take away a privilege, or she goes to time out.

Well at our Thanksgiving dinner we would all looked very shocked and tell said child "that is not a word we use" in a very stern voice. Then turn our heads away and giggle quietly. Yeah similar things have happened.

While staying at our parents cabin once, my 4yo was looking in the fridge for something and he pulled one of the drawers out too far and then couldn't get it back in so he says "ahh s**t, now what am gonna do?" He was talking to himself and we heard him from the living room.

HAHAHA!!!!

I'm a bit of a potty mouth so if that happened at Thanksgiving I'd just get mad at myself and remind my son that word is on the no-no list.

Funny story-- a couple of days ago we were playing a rhyming game in the car I'd throw out a word and he'd say one that rhymed. Well I said "SONG!" and I got back "BONG!"

I swear he did not learn THAT from me!

I'm 99.99999999% certain that was the case, he got a a few in row by just using the letter "B" but he cracked me up when he said it.

Kids always seem to say the wrong thing at the wrong time.

When my DD was I think 2 or close to 3 may parents came to visit and I was in the shower so my mom was watching her. I came out when done and my Mom says to me, "do you know what your daughter said", I was like oh no, now what. Well my Mom said they were in the living room playing and the dogs started barking so my lovely daughter says, "what are those godd**n dogs barking at now". I just busted up laughing, I couldn't help it. Out of the mouths of babes
