Quelling a Potty Mouth:
What’s your best strategy for stopping a potty-mouthed child? Are you old school and wash his mouth out with soap as punishment? Or do you understand that you may be partly to blame—like when you shout expletives as someone cuts you off in traffic—and therefore establish a more lenient point of view? Do you create trash-mouth zones in the house, permitting the use of potty language only when it is directed at the potty in the bathroom? What works for your family? We want to know!
