Have you seen Oswald?
He’s a blue octopus with his own show on Nick Jr. Sydney was watching an episode recently about Oswald and his friend taking a wagon full of trash to the dump.
“Let’s take this to the dump,” Oswald said cheerfully at one point.
My 9-year-old son looked up from his DSi game.
“Naaaawwwwwwww!!!! That’s just WRONG! He said DUMP!”
So-called potty words never fail to grab his attention. I’m going to start sprinkling them liberally in my speech when talking to my son:
“Will, take out the poopy garbage, please.”
“Will, don’t forget to pick up your pee-pee butt clothes off the floor.”
“Hey, Will, you need to feed the cat. Fart, fart, fart.”
How do you get your kids to listen?
