OMG...my DD let out a curse word last night. It was the "S" word and it was after she had dropped one of her school folders on the floor, spilling papers everywhere.

I honestly was not prepared for the moment and flew off the handle a little bit. (But at least I didn't curse, LOL) I have no idea where she could have even picked up this habit from! Neither DH or I curse in front of her. How can I handle this better if it happens again? I have a feeling that if I come across too strict about it, it will just make the word more appealing but I don't want her to think this is okay either! 

HELP!

Thank you! I'll have to practice a few times so I can sound as boring and expresion-less as possible so that I'll be ready for next time.
