How is it that children seem to know just which words are the "bad" ones and cling to them like velcro? Why is it so hard to get kids to remember "please", "thank you" and "excuse me", but as soon as someone slips out the s-word or the a-word, their radar goes off and they commit it to their daily vocabulary? Before you know it, you're overhearing your precious little girl calling her sister a "stupid-a$$" from the next room. And the very second you go to point out that "we don't use those words" happens to coincide with the very moment that it is engraved into their little brains for life.
