Had a big arguement with my MIL today, who wants to be controlling, and hates the way we bring up our kids. We swear alot around the house, the usual words fuck, shit, cunt and so on, and really think nothing of it. To us they are just words and no big deal - obviously our two children have picked up these words and use them.
And they obviously hear and use them at school and preschool.
I really dont think I should feel 'guilty' for either using them, or letting our children use them. I dont buy into the bullshit of 'adult' words and children words - that is just too confusing for children.
Would be interested in what other mums think. I really think there are far more important issues to think about and have told the MIL that!
