Swear words

No more watching Entourage with the kids in the room.

The other day my 4 year old told his little brother to "give me that f*ing truck."

I didn't say anything, mainly because I was laughing, and disciplining a child while laughing is rather ineffective, but also because I don't want to draw attention to it. I guess I hope if I ignore it, it will just go away. Telling a 4 year old something is a bad word (like "shut up") cements it into their minds and they'll try to use it, or point out when other people use it.

How do you handle your child using swear words?
