I'm dealing with 2 unrelated issues with my 1st grade son.
1) He learned the f-word in school in KINDERGARTEN from a classmate. Over the past 6 months we've been trying to explain that is is never acceptable to say and we've made some progress, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had success in explaining WHY certain words (or this particular word) are so bad. My only response to "Why" has been "It just is". Also, what would you think is an appropriate response from the classroom teacher if she hears it or sees it written by a 1st grade student.
2) DS is just not getting that his private parts are private and I don't know of any other way to explain it, other than "these are your private parts and no one else should see them." Can anyone recommend an age-appropriate book that might explain WHY he needs to keep them private? We haven't discussed the birds and the bees yet.
