<p>Anyways, I know 'farting is natural but so many days of my son pretending that he's farting or burping anytime.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then if he does have to fart he goes I'm going to try and fart on mommy or the cat which I wonder what gives him the idea to do that because I will be going No getting away then he still follows trying to do that .</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then he has such unmodest language when he's around me and he also has this unmodest language when he's with his friends .</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He even has these sayings that I'm like where did he get that from or who did he get that from ?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I keep wondering how do I get this to stop and does any parents have boys who do that ?</p>

<p>When I looked at the thread title the first thing that popped into my head was, "um.....until about 24?" It is a weird boy/man thing.  They are so proud of the noises they can make and things they can do with their bodies, they can help but show off. I have noticed a significant drop in this behavior in my DS1. He has just this year (12) figured out that a)girls a pretty cool and b)girls DO NOT did stuff like this! As hard as it is to see him reaching this stage in his life, it really is a relief as well <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>

<p>Yeah it tends to last awhile.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My oldest is 8 and has learned when talk like that is appropriate and when it isn't.  Even my 4 year old knows when and when not to talk that way.  My advice is to redirect him to a better time or place to talk about stuff like that. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>But between the two of them, there's a lot of burp/fart/poop talk around my house.</p>
