Do your kids curse?

If so, what do you do - ignore it?

  • every damn day but they're grown so no one really cares!

  • None of mine ever did and none of my grandchildren do, either.

    Answer by NannyB. at 12:27 PM on Nov. 30, 2010

  • Mine don't. Probably because we don't really curse either. I mean, an 'oh shit' or something is bound to slip once in a while but they don't hear it enough to pick up on it I guess.

  • My oldest is 14 and on the Autism spectrum, and when in 'meltdown mode' he will let loose with curses. That is the next issue to tackle on our therapy goals- get rid of the curses and use other words instead.

  • Yep, not much, but they do. And we don't make a big deal of it. I would prefer them use "bad words" in every day conversation than use every day words to hurt someone... We prefer to focus on HOW a word is used rather than WHAT words are used.

  • DS is only 2, so any swearing is only when he repeats us when we slip. We ignore it, and it quickly goes away. He doesn't do it on his own.

  • 8, 10 and 12 year old here. No, I think they know better.

  • My 8 & 6 year old don't. My 14 almost 15 year old, I'm sure he does but he never does it around me so I'm fine with it. I realize that he's a teenager and I can't control that. I mean I know I did it when I was his age.

  • I wish my two year old would. Plus we don't curse so I would be highly upset if she learned some mess like that at daycare.
