More help, please.
Porter and his potty mouth… and I’m not talking his sailor words this time.
I kid you not… all day long he has literal diarrhea of the mouth. Everything has “Poop” attached to it and I swear to God if I hear it again…
I’ve tried sassy sauce (vinegar and water) and lately I can just threaten with sassy sauce and he stops but now he’s to the point where he asks if I have sassy sauce with me and of course I tell him yes and that does deter him from using potty words but I don’t feel like I should have to have a “crutch” of sassy sauce, kwim?
Before sassy sauce I had him go to the bathroom and shout out all of his potty words. He’d say “Poop” or “Butt” or something and I’d say “Go to the bathroom, shut the door and get it out.” And we’d hear him in there “Poop butt Pooop Poooooop PPPPOOOOOPPPP Fart Buttt!!”
Today we were playing outside and I think I had just halfway tuned out anything vulgar Porter was mumbling as he played but finally I snapped and turned and slapped his face. I was SO OVER IT! I’m SO sick and tired of hearing those RIDICULOUS words.
I had a chat with him tonight and told him that it makes him look stupid when he walks around saying Poop and Butt and Pee and Crap. I told him there were much better words he could use in the English Language (what, like SHIT? ). I told him it made me very angry and frustrated when I heard him say those words all day.
And its not like he’s saying like, “I have to poop! The cat is gonna poop!” No… its like “Ok, let me go put on my poop coat!” What do you want for dinner, Porter? “Poop sandwich!”
Help. What do I do. How do I get rid of this fascination with POOOP!?!?
