It's stupid and poo poo head, usually in combination, in our house. My DD got it from her best friend who has been in trouble at school and home for using "potty words" we have never had this problem and had no "rules" regarding name calling. We mostly ignore it, although if she keeps going I will say something like, "We don't call people names. It is not nice. Please stop." It usually happens when DD is frustrated with ME because she feels that I am not being responsive enough, like if her little brother is getting into things and I am not intervening quickly enough. The biggest way to stop it in my house seems to be prevention, if I don't let things escalate, she doesn't call names. But it is frustrating. Good luck! Everything is SO much harder when you are so preggo as well.
