My kids aren't aloud to say that. Their aunt Tara used to say it all the time and that's how they got started. At first it was funny, maybe even a little cute, but if you were to finish the sentence, what would most likely follow? My kids shouldn't be saying, "What the hell." They should say things like,"Oh goodness, What is going on?" Or even, "Pardon me, Did I hear you correctly?" But saying you-know-what is crossing the line. I also don't let them cuss in general. It's not a good habit and so many are completely offended by it so I made a rule. No cussing.
We have some other rules in our house. You can only pee outside if you're already out there and you have to be discrete. None of the shorts at your ankles business. Not very inconspicuous... You have to flush the toilet. I don't really want to see what you've accomplished, or haven't accomplished, today. We also have a rule that if there's poop in your crack you lose a sticker on the helping chart. But, if you go straight into the toilet you get two stickers! This is only the case for our middle child, fyi. Ben doesn't really struggle with that anymore. Well, sorry this is such a dirty post. Who knew I'd have so much potty talk. Not me!
