I Inadvertently Taught My Son To Faux Swear

When I saw the super high price of something in a store today, I muttered to myself, "Jaleo...mole, guacamole con frijoles!" which is basically my own silly faux swear. A little bit later, my son, delighted by the intense graphics of a computer game on display in the store, exclaimed, "Jaleo...mole, guacamole con frijoles!" It's hard to describe, but it is a very strange feeling hearing his little voice say that.

      That's funny. I admire that you don't curse around him - but reacting in anger (no matter what words you use) is something he'll learn, too.

      Kids are sponges when it comes to that kind of stuff.

        It wasn't anger. Just surprise. I said it under my breath in a surprised but non-angry kind of way.

    Great story and the same thing happened to me and my kid.

    The wife and I are serious Lakers fans and the kid was about four years of age.

    At one time the Lakers would come on almost every Sunday, we'd watch and when something would go wrong for the Lakers, I would say damn!

    I was surprised when the daughter began to say it after I would say it.

    I gently told her that she could not say things like that and that was the end of it.

    I refrained from saying it in front of her myself.

    Yes, kids are like sponges.
