A Texas mom thinks it's bull that her 3-year-old girl was expelled from the Jubilee Child Development Center in San Antonio for saying "sh-t," WOAI reported.
"I don't condone her saying i,t but for that to be a faith-based day care, I would think that they would reinforce and let her know that's not a word to say," Cassandra Wright told the local station.
Wright said she doesn't use that word at home and isn't quite sure how little Arianna heard it in the first place. She even doubts whether she knows what it means.
"I asked her what word did you say and she told me 'animal,'" she said.
But Alissa Blankenship, the day care center's director, says the school has a zero tolerance policy for profanity because it spreads easily. She doesn't think this was an isolated incident anyway. She told the NBC affiliate that Arianna laughed after saying the word and worried she might say it again.
The center reserves the right to dismiss any child that is not in its best interest, she added.
"Well as a private center and also a parent myself you know there's decisions and choices that have to make," she explained.
Arianna is not the first child the center banned for cursing.
This toddler was shown the door for the one time she swore
They won’t have any kids left if they enforce this strictly. All kids like to try out these words.

my kid first heard “butthead” at a Christian nursery school then said it to the neighbor
I would bet you this isn’t the first time the mom’s been talked to.
People sure seem to have thin skin nowadays. I suspect it was more be ause f the color of her skin.../s
"That's a bad word!"
(back turned) (Snickers).
Butthead? Someone must be a “Back to the Future” fan.
" ... and worried she might say it again."
The unnatural fear of fear.
Americans USED to be called ugly 'cause we weren't skeered o' NUTHIN'
But then somehow ... we got skeered
I don't think it's that bad and certainly nothing to bar a kid from school over.
The teacher and cadre need some reality training
In 1955, more than 100 years after his death, kids once again looked up to Davy Crockett as a hero and role model, thanks to Walt Disney.
Not all these kids learn these words at home. It can be learned anywhere where a person might use such a word. It is just as likely that she heard the word anywhere, perhaps even another child at that daycare.
No, not really. At 3 or 4 my daughter shared with a sense of horror that another child has used the "S word at preschool. Since we had never used the word, I thought I better explain how inappropriate it is, however I luckily sought a little clarification from her first. It turned out that the "S word" was "stupid".
If parents don't curse, toddlers don't curse... Unless they are around toddlers that do.
Used to be schools could reprimand a kid, not anymore they’ll be looking at “child abuse” charges. The kids understand this very early.
The kid heard it at home, regularly. Amazing that shite was the word, I would expect MF to be regular usage.
The center is privately owned and can enforce this rule if they want but I have to wonder why this rule is so strict. They must have experience with out of control children and have decided to their only recourse is to have a zero tolerance policy. Sad that it has come to this.
We also had Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, Lone Ranger, Buffalo Bob Smith and a few et cetera's
WE were the ones that volunteered ala WW2 for Viet Nam
We also had John Wayne in every heroic role a boy could possibly dream of ... except astronaut.
Thats what you get when you embrace thug culture. Kids with potty mouths from birth whose goal is to become a 9mm wielding thug who deals weed and makes more than those college kids ever imagined a day tax free. And you wonder how they purchased those Cadi Escalades in cash...
