  • Because it's not nice, it's not polite, it's hurtful to other people, it's not part of a child's right to an innocent childhood.

  • Because we dont need little kids saying the f**K word or anyother bad words...little kids need to be taught better ways to express themselves other than curse words......

  • 1. Cursing makes you seem like you can't think of a better word.
    2. No one will want to have play-dates with your child if they curse like a sailor.

  • Because it sounds incredibly inappropriate for a child to use such words, and reflects very badly on the parents.
