Sister Bear is over at Lizzy Bruin's house watching Trouble at Big Bear High--a big-cubs' video that they probably shouldn't even be looking at--in which two teen bears are having an argument. When one of them gets really really angry, he says a certain word. It's a word Sister has never heard before. At dinner that night Sister tries out this brand-new, stronger-sounding ...more

This book teaches kids that, yes, their parents swear sometimes but, no, neither the parents nor the kids should swear. Why? Because it isn’t “nice,” but, more importantly, it’s lazy and too easy a habit to fall into. This is not the best of the Berenstain Bears offerings but, what can I say? My son loves these books. They appeal to kids by addressing every possible parenting fail, and then making the parenting fail a-okay in the end. I wish all my parenting fails were neatly wrapped up in 32 pa ...more
Wow. I almost don't know what to say. This was horrible, but in such a surprising way that I'm not even sure how to react. Normal Berenstain Bears books build up these (usually) horrible, (sometimes) hypocritical morals over 32 pages. This one didn't bother. The first ~20 pages were drivel, and then sudden in the last 9, the "don't use words that the Moral Guardians don't like" moral flies in, squawks, then flies away without so much as an explanation to why it was there in the first place.

A good way to teach your kids not to say "phooey" or "fudge" (the examples they use in the book). Probably not so useful to get your kid to stop dropping f-bombs. Because, you know, you're way past Berenstain Bears territory at that point.

This book is great for teaching little ones not to use foul language.

I think it's like when a child learned a bad word and says it in front of his/her parents and got blamed for it. It's very horrible when I did that to my brother. I get in trouble when I say it. :(
Papa nor Momma bear addressed the fact that brother bear saw the same innapropriate movie as sister did. Why was it not okay for sister to see a movie with bad language, but it was okay for brother? Inconsistent writing and parenting
A lot of things seemed to have been dropped over the course of this book, such as Brother not getting in trouble for watching the same movie.
