    I had this kind of thread in my old rugby forum but since I got kicked out of there, I miss it. This is just parents sharing funny moments and advice. For Instance, The wife now has to be careful with her words because the tiggeress will repeat things like "F#$k that teacher" and "piece of s#!t"

    Also this a place to ask questions like
    1. Is melatonin ok and for how long?
    2. I dont think the doctor gave the tigger a proper cut but my wife is scared to have corrective surgery.

    And so on..

    There's a separate forum for this, but nobody posts there - it hasn't been posted to in over a year. So this thread is probably a better place to get people to participate.

    My kid (15 years old now) has learned the art of the F-word. We learned today that the summer camp for his choir, which normally is a sleepaway camp held on the campus of a Seventh Day Adventist school, which is vegetarian (so the camp is also vegetarian), which is not his favorite, was not going to be a sleepaway camp this summer because of covid, and his response was "oh, thank ********".

    My oldest is the straightest of arrows. He dropped an F-bomb in front of my wife and I when he was in kindergarten and was extremely horrified when we told him that was a potty word that only adults should use. Ever since, I don’t recall him swearing and he has an annoying habit of calling out my wife and I when we swear...

    The youngest, on the other hand, is a potty mouth, but I’m not sure he knows he’s doing it. He’s a self-talker and we caught him swearing at his ipad once. After we told him not to swear and after he recovered from the meltdown he had, he spent the next few minutes talking to himself about how he wasn’t supposed to say “sh*t” or “f*ck”. For awhile there every time he heard someone swear, we’d hear him talking to himself about how the person wasn’t supposed to use <swear word>, how <swear word> was a potty word, and how he wasn’t supposed to say <swear word>. He also continues to swear at his ipad, but for the most part he’s just talking to himself about the game, he’s trying to figure something out, and, most importantly, he absolutely nails the proper use of the various swear words, so how can you be mad at him?

    Well Sammy Jr. Swearing at 15 is one thing, the tiggeress is 4.5. That is the concern and it is hysterical when she mimics her mother. I have always been careful because I know they pick up saying all the bad things you say. Seen it enough with friends kids. I truly fear my wife's violent language being picked. She will complain about coworker like "Jane is useless, some should slit her throat and leave her in the woods." And I am horrified, because Tiggeress is in the living room! I keep telling her when the school calls us, you will explain it, I ain't falling on that Grenade.

    My other talking issue is Tigger is 1.5 and the doctor is worried he doesnt say 10 words yet. I am not worried and I dont want to bother with speech therapy at this age.

    Yosh, how old are your two?

    Kid has figured out how to climb the stairs (which he first did when Spassapparat left him alone for five seconds to let the dog in). Babies are terrifying daredevils and I am not prepared.

    How'd you get kicked out of a rugby forum? I guess I figured those guys were willing to say anything, anytime.

    I hadnt seen you in these parts in forever, wasnt sure if you were still posting?

    They have not been taught fear yet. My 1 year old climbs the stairs when he hears water for his bath. So I come downstairs and walk behind him. Has yours started on the edge of the couch or its arms yet?

    There's an old saying, the British version of which is "Football (soccer) is a gentlemen's sport played by hooligans. Rugby is a hooligan's sport played by gentlemen."

    There's actually a higher standard of behavior expected in rugby than in soccer.

    Still, getting thrown off a rugby message board... that's a feat.

    No worries. Yeah, I'm still lurking about.



    He definitely had a phase where he loved to lean over the edge or back of the couch to stare at the dog/cats, and we had to watch him to make sure he didn't lean too far and fall. Also a favorite was throwing shit off the couch onto the floor. But throwing shit onto the floor is his favorite game regardless of where he is. Sitting with mom at her desk? Open the drawers and throw all the shit in there on the floor. High chair? Drop food onto the floor for the dog to eat and then cry about being hungry. Bath? Throw duckie out and then stand up in the f@cking tub to stare at it and laugh and then slip and almost drown.

    Just wait until he's walking. Even though he's crawling, he's at least somewhat contained. It gets exponentially worse when they start walking around. Our youngest is a ninja. We'd put him in front of a pile of toys get distracted for half a second, then find him in the kitchen digging through the drawers in the kitchen.... I will say tho, he finds lost things like no ones business. I lost a pin a couple of years before he was born, but one day he walked up to me with it in his hand... Covered in drool, mind you, but still in his hand. I have no idea where he found it.

    Perhaps try not to let him shit on the couch. Then he’ll have no ammo to throw.

    My kids are prolly older than most of the the posters here and were perfect angels.
