What do you think about making a second grader clean the toilets for cursing?
Does this show a very progressive pedagogical insight?
Having served in the army, i dont recall having to do that as a punishment,
i had to run around the base a few times.
What is a suitable punishment for a 7 year old using curse words?
I have heard of washing the mouth out with soap thus making the punishment a metaphor for cleansing out the dirt that is supposibly in the words.
Do kids curse a lot these days?
I would say YES
listen to some of the t.v. shows and children movies
(one exemple is the simpsons or Kevin home alone )
I sometimes say shit should i then have to scrub toilets?
or perhaps one can curb cursing by offering alternative outlets, and by isolating a cursing child from others.
