Some people use an offensive word in every other sentence. So their children are also swearing and don’t think anything of it. What are your thoughts?

    • I don’t mean to be Ms. Sweetie, but in my lifetime I’ve probably said the s and f words about 5 times. My parents hardly swore and I never hear it from my daughter, but she says that she does once in awhile amongst friends.

      I don’t like hearing it when people swear to their kids in public. When I tell children that it’s not acceptable at school they just say my parents do. Of course, they hear it endlessly in movies too.

    • It’s ridiculous.  I swear now and then, and probably quite a bit more at work than at home, but in front of kids or at kids, no way.

      I have a quote laying right here beside my computer.
      “Vulgarity is no substitute for wit.”
      als
      “Swearing is a lazy man’s way of being emphatic.”

      Both so true.

    • I go to college and that word is used casually in every day language. Drives me nuts! I hate it!

    • Incidentally, I said the word “crap” one day and my classmates laughed hysterically. they said it was weird - that word coming out of my mouth. I took it as a compliment and laughed along with them. Then I told them not to get too used to it, I don’t swear very often.

    • Hi Cynthia, I’ve said “crap” too. I freak out when I hear a teacher use a ’s’ or ‘f’ word at school in the staff room or when the kids aren’t around. It doesn’t seem right.

    • I don’t curse much but unfortunately my husband has a sailor’s mouth. frown  Luckily the kids haven’t picked up on it yet and hopefully won’t.

    • I guess it depends how a person is raised, but quite honestly I have heard the worst vulgarities from some adults and their kids never swear, and some parents who never swear and their kids have potty mouths...so it is anyone’s guess.

      It might have to do with each person’s stress level, possibly...my hub can be pretty bad at times and our son rarely says a curse.  I do once in a while when really angered.
