Mine have never said it in earshot, or that I have heard about, and they are teenagers. Ever since they were very little, I have always told them there are no bad word; there are just words, and bad or inappropriate places to use them and people to use them around. And that while I do use that language, I would prefer they not get started or that they wait. And so far it has worked perfectly. My daughter is 14 and when she is told she has permission to repeat something, she will proceed to ask several more times if I'm sure it's okay for her to say it. And both of them will "MOMMY!!!" me when I say something.
BTW, I have a high IQ and a great deal of education and I swear like a sailor. Have since I was younger than my daughter is now. And I know plenty of happy, successful, intelligent people with vocabularies that rival mine. Both in words in general and profanity.
They are just words. They only have power if you give it to them.

Next question overall
Does a doctor have to refer me for a 3d u/s or can I set one up myself?
