My ds is 3 and mildly autistic. In the last month he has been continuously saying bad words. Nothing too horrible.....but mainly stupid, pee, poop, poopdeck, and Oh my god, or stop it god. We're not sure how to deal with it. I think he likes the reaction or attention every time we tell him know. He doesn't understand when we say "if you say it again you will go to timeout", or that we won't do something fun (like McDonalds today). I think he got stupid from TV but Thomas the train is his favorite. I can't even turn the radio on without hearing that word. Today I tried to ignore him, and he would walk in front of me and say things over and over.....he did stop a little bit but the problem is he has a twin sister who tells me everytime he says something.....so its hard to ignore him when she keeps saying that Landon said this and Landon said that. We're trying to explain that he can say God when he is praying or talking to him, but not in a bad way. At Sunday school when they pray he tells the teacher, don't say that word. Anyone deal with this and what actually works with a child who doesn't understand or handle discipline the same as other kids.
