Hi! The past few weeks my 2yr old (3 in january) has been doing a lot of name calling to her siblings and using bad words, and i would love some suggestions to to handle this in a positive way. I have been trying to teach her alternative words to use, or to express the emotion at hand instead of calling a name, but I feel like its not making much of a difference. Her father and I unfortunately have very different patience levels and approaches, and he threatens to use soap or hot sauce, which kills me as I do not agree w/ punishment. And yes, we have ourselves cussed in front of the kids, which I know is not good role modeling. I have mostly stopped w/ the exception of an occasional slip up, but her dad cusses all the time, as well as calling names to his family members. How do you handle one parent trying to teach good language while the other constantly does what the other preaches against? I am at a loss, really frustrated and feeling helpless.
