    Yeah its a shame. Now that I live with small kids its amazing how I can say a word (not a cuss word) and even the 2 year old will retain it (never saying it) until like a month later.

    But this is just nuts, kids are rewarded with attention and laughter for using these words so they do it more. The cussing kid in the OP already has so many strikes against him. Think of how he's going to be in school. Think of all the lost time his classmates will have to sacrifice because of his behavior. Think of the diminished outcomes he will likely face.

    Re: Mother of toddler in 'thug' video says her son is smart, does not curse

    I am reminded of an article I read some years back discussing the African American mother's tendancy to coddle and over-protect the young African American males. With all the things working against the young black males it is totally understandable why the are inclined to make these excuses and over-protect. It a maternal instinct to do so.

    But in their well-intended ignorance, they are enabling the male child to avoid responsibility and be accountable for their actions. And, as a result, their community is in the state that it is in today.

    Any mother that does not recognize the socially unacceptable traits of these children, as witnessed in this video, and even go further to defend and justify these behaviors, should of have had their tubes tied long before giving birth. Just my 2 cents.

    Sadly, this is more common than it is not, although perhaps not to this extreme.

    Parenting is a an antiquated practice.

    Re: Mother of toddler in 'thug' video says her son is smart, does not curse

    LOL.

    Hadn't seen this.

    My buddy, his wife, and their three kids spent the night with us on new Year's Eve.

    They have a six-year-old and a pair of three-year-old twins, all boys.

    One of the twins was swearing like a ****ing sailor. Not as bad as what the article says this kid was saying, but pretty bad for a three-year-old, like nothing you've ever seen/heard before.

    My wife and I, and our six-year-old son, were astonished.

    My buddy's wife was embarrassed, but not mortified, and she conceded that "he's been doing this".

    Crazy thing is that my buddy has a BA, an MS, and a JD from one of the most prestigious law schools in the country and is an equity partner in the second biggest law firm in NJ specializing in antitrust litigation. His wife is a child psychologist (non-PhD).

    This guy sits on boards, and his kid is talking that way.

    It floored me.

    I don't know where the kid is getting it. I imagine that he must hear it at home, but I've never heard my buddy or his wife talk that way in front of the kids. Never heard the wife talk that way at all, and my buddy only when he's drinking and it's just the guys, and rarely even then.

    I have no doubt that their kids are being raised right. They're as well behaved and as polite as could be under most circumstances (but they're kids, so they can be real assholes when they have the mind to, just like my own boys).

    Maybe this kid is the same way?

    Maybe it's something "funny" these people do, but isn't something that's going to have any real long-term bearing on the kid's eventual success in life and isn't representative of the kids usual behavior.

    I just don't know.

    I admit that if I didn't have the experience I had I would almost certainly be in the same camp as most of you, dooming this kid to a life of underachievement, larceny, misogyny, and eventual incarceration.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Wow.

    So "every kid does it" ????

    My kids didn't.

    Actually - I've never seen a kid that small say such things.

    I also never saw adults act that way around kids either.

    So who here allows, or teaches, or encourages their own children to curse?
    Who thinks it's cute?

    Anyone?

    Or - do you find it deeply disturbing?
    Yeah, tell it to the judge, darling. You're not fit to be a parent, period.

    To purposefully raise a child that way, not a good idea. Having it occur, despite intentions? I am less critical of. I have no place to complain. I am very certain my dear brother (who may not know better) will be unintentionally teaching my future children, or my sibling's future children some interesting words or phrases. To an extent, I will have a humor about it. I grew up in a household where my aforementioned brother would belt out things as a little 4 year old during church that eventually got us pushed out. You just try to teach the kid not to do it, and hope for the best. By the time they are older, they will pick up on their peer's own language and use it anyway.

    One of my wives friends is a teacher. And she tells us all the time stories about how she will talk to a parent about a problem the kid is having or something the kid is doing and the parent will say "my kid doesn't do that". Gotta love this no accountability system in America.
