Swearing Children – Just lovely

Swearing has become a part of our language in the everyday. If you watch TV after 8:30pm we hear it all the time. Many parents are swearing in front of children, but we don’t need to accept it in our centre.

Step 1 Write down some examples of what you have heard when a child swears

Step 2 What is the child trying to say?

Step 3 Come up with a better vocabulary for the child to use. Ensure the new words and sentences are difficult to say. This then gives the child a real challenge and when they achieve this they will then have a sense of achievement.

Let’s put it into practice.

Step 1 “You’re a F*#king C*%t Rachel” said Jackson. True story….

Step 2 What is the child really trying to say?

I’m frustrated that you are not allowing me to _______________ (please fill in the blank)

Step 3 We don’t use words like that here at our centre. Let me give you better words to use.

I’m furiously frustrated at you Miss Rachel. I would like to continue here playing with…

I’m wrathfully irritated at you Miss Rachel. I would like to continue here playing with…

I’m irately exasperated at you Miss Rachel. I would like to continue here playing with…

Step 3a Write the words down in foundation font and display it on a word board. Teach all the children the new words.

Praise the children for using them.

Children love to learn new words. Now practice.
