I always reminded my daughters that they should speak only good words, bad words are strictly prohibited in our home, below are some funny conversations we have the other day:
The kids were quarelling and uttering not so good words to each other:
Me: How many mouth that God gave us?
Me: How may ears that God gave us?
Me: Why do you think God only gave us one mouth and two ears leh?
Me: So that we talk less and listen more, so both of you should listen when mommy, daddy, teacher and ah mah talks and don't be so "chee jah"
Girls: Oh... :(
Michelle: (Proudly and confidently)There are 4 bad words that we should not say at home.
Me: What are they?
Michelle: Word no 1 - "stupid"
Michelle: Word no 2 - "Oh my god"
Me: Hmm.... good
Michelle: Word no 3 - "Wah lau eh"
Me: Who teach you that??
Michelle: Word no 4 - "Sen jing ping" - crazy in mandarin
Me and hubby: :D
Emily: We cannot say "wei" and "hei" also... very rude hor...
Me: Hmm... that's right... good girls...
You see, we don't use above 4 words, so obviously this must be coming from her friends at school....
