Are there any words you detest?

I really can not stand the word Shut Up. I think it is so disrespectful. Anyone have words that are just not allowed in their homes?

  • I hate the word for boobs that rhymes with "witty". It makes me squirm.

  • when my kids were little I didn't like them calling people that they are older there really aren't any words they can't say. I don't like Shut Up either although sometimes it might be the only thing that workds. As far as swearing goes my kids know the rules are pretty simple, although probably not liked by all. If we are at a concert and they are singing they are allowed to say the swears. If we are at home or out in public they are not allowed to swear. When they are hanging out with their friends, while I would like them to not swear, I am sure they do sometimes.

  • the C word...C*nt and it's not an A that goes there... or almost any word in that variety.

    Also I hate words that are used to make others feel bad or to put someone down- idiot, stupid, retard...

  • just about the only word that chaps my hide is the word 'peepee'..when used by my dh (49yo!) in reference to his own penis. (blame it on his mother, i guess!)

  • and cornflakegirl3- it's the same with us for the most part- but the words I mentioned for putting others down- my kids get in trouble for those.
    We have actually not had issues with them swearing in innapropriate places or in front of family - they know they can swear- but there are times when it's not ok too
