    Default What do you regret teaching them??

    Hi

    Just wondering if there was a certain phrase you now regret teaching your child to say. I'm sure there will be more I can add - but for the moment - my most hated one is when he says "MINE"... don't know WHAT I was thinking when I said it to the little repeating monkey!!!!!
    And of course - EVERYTHING is his apparently. Remotes, mobiles, bottles of water, cds, dvds... argghhh.. everything....

    I have lots of things I regret DH teaching Darc, but funnily enough i've never used the word 'mine' and she still says it.

    My DH said to DD one time, "Did you fart?" Since then she'll happily tell anyone that she has farted. Very embarrassing.

    It's NO in this house too. Paige says no to everything. I'll ask Tyler a question and Paige will say NO. I can blame NO on DP he used to get her to say it. Gets a bit annoying. She is also starting with the MINE thing as well. The other thing that can get annoying is when we go down the street and she has to point out absolutely every car or tree.

    Mine is "Mummy, Mummy, Mummy, Muuuuummmyyy!!!" and then if I don't respond quickly enough "NAOMI!!"

    So I sort of regret teaching DD what Mummy's name is

    Touch it!

    I use to say to my son do you want to touch it. (I'd let him feel different items)

    Now he has to touch everything, he's now 3 and it's still going strong. If you say no he screams "I touch it".

    Ahhh the silly things we do!!
