Like an omnipresent deity or artificial intelligence run by a multibillion-dollar tech company, children are always listening.
Unfortunately for U.S. Marine and new dad James LaPorta, some parents have to learn this lesson the hard way.
In a video posted to Twitter, James’ two-year-old son can be heard dropping the F-bomb so many times, it would make Samuel L. Jackson blush.
As a former U.S. Marine, now a father, there is perhaps one word I should try to cut out of my vernacular around my soon to be 2-year-old. ???? pic.twitter.com/HSQZN7bHVn

“As a former U.S. Marine, now a father, there is perhaps one word I should try to cut out of my vernacular around my soon to be 2-year-old,” LaPorta tweeted.
The video focuses solely on James sitting in the front seat, his expressions progressing from shock to embarrassment to complete resignation, while his potty-mouthed son exclaims the f-word literally 26 times.
“I have been trying really hard to be mindful, but sometimes it’s the best word for multiple situations,” James wrote in the tweet mentions.
The video has accrued just shy of 399k views and has been retweeted over five thousand times with many of the commenters either relating to the toddler’s crude exclamations or reminding the regretful dad that kids do indeed hear everything, especially the things you don’t want them to.
“If I didn’t know it before, I do now,” James assures them.
