Do you ever swear at your kids out of anger?

My SIL cusses at her kids like crazy! It's not like a "get your ass over here". It's like real bad. I hate it when she does that. It makes me feel so bad for my nephews. Like I said it's horrible the way she swears at them. I NEVER swear at my kids EVER! I've slipped up and used bad language around them ,but never at them.

  • Yep. I am an imperfect soul. They have to really make me mad though.

  • Nope. Never have. But I've thought a few choice words at times.

  • Yup, but I'm a cusser anyways.

  • No, I don't swear at all so it's never been a problem. I was taught growing up that it was very bad to swear so I never did it, now those words still feel "wrong" coming out of my mouth so I just don't use them.

  • I will openly admit to letting a good "Goddammit!" fly every so often. I do try to avoid the F-bomb though.

  • I use ass and hell with my 13 year old sometimes. She has probably heard worse from other kids her age though.

  • Don't get me wrong I don't judge parents that do. She says some pretty horrible things though that I don't even want to repeat. There have been plenty of times I've gotten so mad at my kids that I'm definantly thinking something ,but I catch my self before I say it. Like I said they have heard me cuss. I just don't do it at them. My boyfriend will tell our toddler "Get your ass over here" or "Get your ass out of the kitchen". That's nothing compared to what my SIL says to her kids!
