Is it possible at all to get a child to stop saying words that you do not want them to say or is it a completely lost cause? I feel so frustrated because my almost 5 year old is constantly saying 'stupid' and 'dumb'. He calls his brother those things or anything else if he is upset, or not upset even. So now my 1 year old is constantly going around saying them, too.
Once it gets into their vocabularies, is that it? I cannot convince him to stop saying them. Has anyone had any success at getting rid words you don't like. Do I just have to give up and accept that these words are now a part of my child?
