Q: I am the parent of a young son. I catch him experimenting with what I suspect might be the "n word." I try to tell him not to say it, but he can't figure out which word I'm referring to unless I say it myself. Should I say the "n word" to my child, just to clarify?
A: Your child sounds both racist and dim-witted. You should focus your efforts on your next oldest child, because this one is ruined.
