Adventures in Parenting or a Cute Kid Story. You decide  
So I was going to do a thought-y post about friendship and not giving up on people vs. dumping the toxic people in your life, which the Smitten blog had me thinking about, but  I'll shelve that and save it for another day.

Instead, I'll tell you about an exchange that just happened in my living room.

(Ethan, Aaron and Nolan are watching Transformers, which is evidently rated PG-13.  At one point the main character is running from one of the evil Transformers, and is swearing up a storm, using the 's' word.)

Aaron.  (looks at Nolan) We're not supposed to say that word.

Nolan.  No, you're not.

(they watch a bit more)

Nolan.  You know what, AJ?

Aaron.  What?

Nolan.  If you're running for your life away from a giant, evil alien robot, you can say that.  You cuss up a storm.

Aaron.  (big grin)  Awesome.


Parenting is a journey, folks.  :D

*giggles* My grandmother, of all people, told me the same thing, without evil robots. But she said sometimes there are times for swear words.

That's awesome! If I ever have kids, I'm going to give them the same advice (modified for content, of course)!

Perfect advice. :)

I'd love to see if Aaron could find a loophole to that one, though. *evil grin*

*hee* That sounds like the sort of conversation my boys have when watching stuff like Transformers. It's amusing listening to their reasoning, isn't it? :)
