Why is it inappropriate to talk about butts in public?
I keep telling my kids this and I realized that I don’t have a clue what makes it tasteless. I know it isn’t socially acceptable, but I don’t know why.
It is like curse words, except I just tell the kids that they can say those when they are 18. They aren’t bad words. They are grown up words.
Secretly I am starting to believe that it would be completely proper to talk about butts in mixed company if four year olds were not so obsessed with butts and pooping that parents all over the place have to forbid any more use of either word.
That being said, I’ve had to outlaw the phrases “fancy getup”, “Wylie Dufrense” and the spelling of the word ass due to ceaseless repetition.
Now really, be as honest and thorough as possible in your answers as I will use these as a parenting tool.
