In regards to a recent car ride with my 9 year old cousin:
"She mentioned, on the car ride down to our house, that she knows that showing someone your middle finger is pretty bad but she doesn't know what it means. She was clearly fishing for me to tell her so, I said, "You are right...it is not considered a nice gesture." I then asked her if she knew what the F word was. She told me she doesn't know that one but she does know the "sh" word and the "c" word. I left it there."
