You are assuming that the kid understands what he is saying and trying to provoke you. What if the kid is not sure of the meaning of what is coming out of his mouth and is just "trying it out" as he heard someone using it. In such a situation we must respond very quickly and effectively that this is not how we talk. This will make it very clear to the child that certain words are unacceptible to you. If you ignore it the child may think these words can be used as they brought no response.Another consideration is that kids should be taught that bad words should never be used as it below their dignity to do so, and this you will not tolerate. If they know in advance the reason for your reprimand they will accept it easier and not develope bad habits.
