  • It slips, but they know those words are not to be repeated at any time

  • No. I don`t cuss at all.

  • Nope...I am probably old fashioned when it comes to this, but I am raising little gentlemen and a little lady and IMO it is not tasteful or polite to curse in front of others. Do not get me wrong, I have been known to drop one now and then but it wouldn't be in front of my kids.

  • not unless you want to be spending alot of time getting your kids to stop ....
    yes they will eventually pick up cuss words and use them but you don't want to be the one being called to
    school because your ds or dd just told the teacher off!!!!

  • No, never. I've been downvoted before for saying so but I don't cuss even when my kids aren't around. It's not the way I was raised and to this day (I'm 37!) those words just feel unnatural coming out of my mouth.

  • It slips every once in a while, but my son puts me in line "why did you say a bad word?"

  • Yea I do. I tried to watch it when the kids were in the "Parrot" ages. But once they hit a certain age we just had to remind the kids that those were adult words and not for kids to use. I'm a firm believer in children do NOT do what adults do. Works really good

  • Yes, but I never cuss at them! And fortuantly none of the 4 out of 5 that cn talk have ever said cuss words! I would love to not, but it always flys out!
