Imagine the shock a short time ago when a curse word escaped from our six year old daughter’s mouth during her riveting recap of her school day. My wife noticed it too, and we exchanged a glance that said we would bring it up with our daughter later on. The same word floated out of her mouth again, and again one more time a few moments later.

We were wrong!
