Do you use the word "hate"? or dis-like?

Just curious. I try to teach my dd that hate is a bad word. But sometimes it is hard not to just hate something or some one...for me right now my mil is walking a fine line!

  • I would not allow my daughter to say that she hates a person and I make a point not to say that I hate someone in front of her, but I don't see anything wrong with saying that I hate peas or Yo Gabba Gabba. I think it's perfectly ok to hate a thing, it's hating a person that we don't do.

  • My husband and I decided to not allow our children to use the word hate. We have choosen to say "Don't Like." And when we slip up our 4 year old is the first to say "Oh you said a bad word."

  • I try not to use hate either. I think it's a very strong word, and while it does have its place, it doesn't really have a place in my kids' mouth! =)

  • Ah, MIL is at the heart of this, I see - and understand. I've never used HATE in reference to people, but I have used it in regards to some other things.

  • My dad raised me to with the belief that hate was a strong word and shouldn't be used lightly. I am doing the same with my son. I might dislike things or people, but it has to be really bad to hate!
