Bill thinks so.
IÃ‚Â caught a glimpse ofÃ‚Â the hand thrusting upward.Ã‚Â There were fingers involved in the movement,Ã‚Â but I don’t think Jake has any clue what he did.
The gesture fit the context–Jake’s response to Bill scolding him.
And I believe he’d drop a swear word.
But four years old, flipping the bird.Ã‚Â I can’t even imagine where he saw that.
I know where he hears swears…but this a really advanced mode of communication–That’s not right.Ã‚Â I don’t mean sophisticated, but even in this world where anything goes, you don’t see people operating this way very often.Ã‚Â I’d think you’d have to be exposed to this a few times before incorporating it into your communication tool-box.
The jury’s out on this one.

My kids were four. They wanted to know what ‘fut’ meant because a kid said it at school and everybody was upset.
That’s so funny. So far they’ve been good about keeping a lid on swear words…not they hear them at home. I know for sure we aren’t walking around flipping each other off.
Gotta love a kid like that!!! You’ll have to see if he does it again…then you’ll know if it was intentional. 🙂
If he does it again tell him it means “I want a time-out.”
