My family went on a little family adventure yesterday. It involved a coupla hour car ride. As we're happily rolling down the road, Luken says, "I wish we had taken Heidi's car."
"Oh? How come?" I say.
"Because in Heidi's car I get to say 'oh, shit!'."
It's true. I let my child say dirty words. He gets to say whatever he wants to say. But only in my car. And only when I say he can. His favorite is "Oh, shit!".
I hope, that by providing Luken a place where all words are okay to say, he'll not say them in inappropriate places. Time will tell if my theory pans out. In the mean time, it provides comic relief.
