I have a 13yo girl, and all her life I have strongly requested that nobody swear around her and for the most part everyone has respected my request. But should I still be sheltering her? I mean yeah it still bothers me, I'm still sensitive, when someone swears around her, but I'm starting to think that maybe she is just too old to be sheltered from that anymore. I know she probably hears this stuff at school too. I don't know what do you all think? Should I be so sensitive at her age or should I change?Answer Question

Awww.. is this your oldest child? I think you have to have an acceptable standard of rules for your daughter and for your home. She should know them well by now. And she should brief her piers on what they are before they come over or at the very least while they are there. As far as sheltering her.. it is difficult to let go! Spend some time in the middle school and you will see the bombs fly left and right. She is hearing a steady flow of profanity all day long. Both at school and threw the multi media outlets!!
I am sure you are doing a great job Mom! Good luck ..
