do u let ur kids say the words "fart" or "oh my gosh"

I do not let my kids say "oh my gosh" to me it doesnt sound good. it actually sounds rude and disrespectful, and i find it a little like "oh my god" which is totally unnessacery. "oh my goodness" is MUCH better.

Now with the word "fart" i have told them it doesnt sound good coming out of little girls mouths but come on its just funny so i dont mind. but they do know when there is a time and place for that.
what about you?

  • I have pet peeves about things people say, but neither one of those are on the list... although I do like Oh my goodness a little better.

    Whenever my husband says our daughter farted I always say little girls don't fart, they toot! lol I don't really care it she says fart though.

  • as long as my kids are not curseing i dont really care. there younger in age and saying mommy i passed gas seems a bit out of reach and altho they have only ever said it on accassions i see no harm in oh my gosh or oh my word.

  • My kids say pretty much whatever they want. The only things I really have a hard time with are "shut up" and "fuck". And even fuck is sometimes funny coming out of a 2 year old mouth lol.

  • My daughter is only 2.5, but she says "toot." I think that sounds much better. She's too young for any of that other stuff. But if she were to say "Oh my gosh" I really wouldn't care unless she said it like Jessica annoying.

  • Yes, "oh my gosh" and "fart" are ok to say. I would rather him say that then drop the "Fbomb" or other cuss words.

    Ati13, it is NOT funny when a 2.5 yr old says F*&K. It is disgusting and wrong.
