Fred Astaire and not Eminem

I just had a run-in with my son where he said something rude to me. The context of the rude statement isn't relevant it's just the fact that he's being rude more frequently and doesn't see it as rude.

I'm crossing the fine line with my son the way he is afraid that I'm going to punish him versus he doesn't know what is rude and is just being himself? I think he's following the behaviors in school with some of his classmates but because he's typically good he doesn't say things in a fresh way to his teachers. When I asked if he said such rude things to his teachers he replied, "no". Then why do you say them to Mommy and I?

After the cool down he seems fine but I left making him aware of what he said that was rude. 

Quentin, any time you feel like something may be rude just ask us and we'll let you know. You need to change and so do we. Teamwork makes the dream work.

Love always,
