HILARIOUS video shows a little girl’s foul-mouthed faux pas as she calls her dad a “c***” whilst practicing reading.
In the clip, seven-year-old Emily Kennedy is being filmed by her mum Angela Kennedy, 37, as she reads aloud with dad John, 42.
The parents from Linwood, Renfrewshire had been helping Emily, who suffers from selective mutism, to improve her reading skills.
After swearing on camera, Angela couldn’t resist sharing the clip to Twitter where it has received more than 450,000 views.
As the video begins, John can be heard saying: “Right car, next one we’re still with curly ‘c’, we’ve got one of these.”
Emily replies: “Cat.”
A pleased John replies: “Cat, yeah!”
Then moving on to the next word he says: “Mum thinks dad is one of these. Right you ready?”
The word John is looking for is ‘clown’ but before he can get there, Emily shouts: “C***”.
John and Angela then collapse into giggles.
A perplexed Emily smiles and asks: “What?”
John puts his head in his hands and laughs as Angela shrieks: “Emily! I’m keeping that, I need to keep that.”
A tickled Angela took to social media to share the hilarious moment.
She tweeted the footage with the caption: “Right sorry but not sorry for this video.
“This is my 7 year old practicing words at home. She is a wee bit slower than most her age with other wee problems, so working at home as well as school helps.
“Here she is, the answer was clown lol, god knows were she hears these words.”
The post, which has since clocked up more than 27,000 likes online, has had socila media users in stitches.
@cloudy_mrs commented: “This is fantastic. Proper laughing. Out of the mouths of babes.”
@Sheplo added: “She has comic timing well beyond her years.”
@Che_Ntcham said: “Well it starts with a curly c so she deserves a point.”
And Lee Saunders replied: “Fair play to you an the wee one. I think with parents with your sense of humour and attitude, she’ll do alright.”
Speaking today, former carer Angela said she was “in shock” when she heard Emily say “c***.”
She said: “When she came out with it I was in shock.
“Emily is a waiting on a autism assessment and in school she doesn’t really talk to teachers.
“Outside school she is like this too, she has selective mutism. That’s why we’re teaching her at home, to try help her get bit better in all aspects.
“Her dad reads every night for her. She does love the idea of it and can read some words and tries her best, she loves trying.”
“We can’t believe how far the clip has went.
“I was told to share on Twitter and I actually didn’t have it.
“So I just made the Twitter account up then shared the clip and on Facebook and Twitter it’s went nuts.”
