I now correct my children whenever lousy grammar escapes their lips--I'm on high alert in Indiana with it being so rampant out here.
Unfortunately, Alex has no intention of holding himself to a higher grammatical standard. When I correct him, he actually has the gall to reject my correction and REPEAT the very sentence (or sentence fragment) he said incorrectly. It goes something like this:
Alex: Mom, her was hitting me.
Kaila ("Mom"): You mean SHE was hitting you?
Alex: NO! HER was hitting me!
Even Noah has joined my plight--in fact it was he that told me to start correcting the kids in the first place.
Some things Indiana can keep to itself.
