If you did this....When did you quit?

We have an almost 15 month old DD and I swear sometimes, but Df swears like a sailor.

Especially when he is upset or angry.

And I don't want this catching on to our DD.

I have slowed down on it, and I'm able to catch myself.

So what age was your children when you decided it was time to stop the potty mouth talk?

Im still a sailor and my kids dont repeat the words.


They did once or twice but I told them they were bad words and only mommy or daddy can say them, havent had any problems.

I don't cuss. My husband still slips up on occasions. Our girls never repeated it, thank goodness.

I am constantly reminding my husband to watch his mouth around our 15 month old DD, because she tries to repeat EVERYTHING! Usually he just says "crap," "dam$" and hel*" but still!!

I didn't quit, I just switched to mommy swears, like "spit" instead of "shit".

No age. I'll talk however I want. My kids know adult words, and not to say them.

My dh drops f-bombs all the time, he never remembers to watch his language in frot of the kids lol.

You need to make it a concious effort- for me its not hard but for some people I've heard coming up with a 'replacement' word helps, instead of swearing saying something funny in its place and only you and your SO/DH knows what it means (:

I don't curse in front of my kids very much. My husband is doing his best not too as well. 

Our 5 yr old hates it when Dad curses. He says.... DAD..... I can hear you! Don't use those bad words please .
