Do you think darn a swear word?

I say it sometimes and so does 4 year old dd. But only when when it is appropate; like when she drops some thing.

  • I don't think it's a swear word at all. However, I don't think I would like my child to say it either. I know sometimes the pick that stuff up though.

  • I do not think it is a swear word. I don't use the word, personally. I would prefer my child say this rather than damn, though.

  • The word "DARN"?? No that is not a swear word.

  • My son says darn it. He had picked up dang it at school (sounded too much like d**n it) and I had to work really hard with him to get him to stop using that word.

    To bonnie-jo you could try using sugar instead of the sh**. If your dd asks why you're saying that reply with something like it is to sweeten your mood.

  • we use darn, sugar, and frick, instead of the other words.
