How do un-bad a bad word

Somehow or other, my little guy picked up a word he isn’t supposed to say. Abuden, he had screamed “Ahsoooooh” ala ‘Meet the Fockers’ ‘asshole’ style when he was one plus years old. He is superb with picking up words he is not supposed to hear.

So, I threaten him with a smack if I hear any more lanchiaus (a colloquial term in Hokkien for penis) coming out of his mouth. The rule of the house is – If anyone says it, he/she (that’s me) will get a smack too.

But sometimes, he forget. He has this special talent of turning songs lyrics into something else. (Hmm…mighty proud, I am) For e.g. He will sing, Lonely…I am so lan….. He sometimes stopped in mid sentence knowing that his three big brothers will scream blardy murder and summon me from the kitchen to give him a smack.

The problem is – When he uttered it, we started sniggering, laughing, holding back laughters etc and hence, he has so much thrills he would risk getting smacks. He probably feels like a stand-up comedian.

However, after too many smacks, now he has developed this good word-


He would go lan….good. Then, looks at me defensively and say “I say good word mah!”

Therefore, no more bad words, ok?

Say good word, say :
