Even if you carefully edit your language when around your toddler, at some point or another she's going to try out a bad word — and it will probably happen at a moment that's totally embarrassing. Don't freak out! Every child experiments with the power of words at some point. Because she doesn't understand the meaning of the word, just ignore it. If your child gets a snicker (or even a reprimand), the attention may encourage her to try the word out again.
