I don't think I would get so bent out of shape over something like that. I give my child enough credit to make his own choices. I explain, when he says something I am not fond of, why I am not okay with it and I explain how if I hear or am told he has said it what will happen as a consequence. I believe in allowing him to make those mistakes that, in all reality, are not really a big deal. It is normal for kids to experiment with profanity and choice words. I did when I was younger. My good friend, who is very conservative today, had a potty mouth in middle school. Hard for me to believe now so I'll have to take her word for it. I certainly don't believe in sheltering my child. Dealing with the kids using "bad words" certainly prepares him for the real world where people do use those words to express themselves. He can choose not and learn how to interact with those that do.
