What the Expert Says:

Thank you for contacting Education.com!

Next time he uses a bad word, calmly remind him that the word is not a nice word and you don't want him to say it again. If he repeats it, send him to time out for not obeying you. Be consistent. Do your best to not curse in front of your child, and not expose him to adult TV or movies where curse words are used.
