Do you think it is okay to swear AT or IN FRONT OF your children? What, if any, do you think the harm can be to them in the future?

No at them no, but I don't think around them hurts when they are old enough to understand there's a time and place for everything. My dad told me that at work with his friends he'd be on break cussing and all that but in work he was respectful and never cursed. So I knew when was inappropriate.

Not at them. But they've heard words every now and then.

I don't think it's okay to swear at your children. Name calling isn't okay.

In front of your children is fine depending. Some kids pick it up and will repeat it over and over, some kids won't.

what kind of swearing are we talking about?

"You shithead!!  You did a fucking shitty job you asshole"

or

"Look at that shitty job you did!"

We choose not to. I don't want her repeating them herself. She tried putting her aunt in time out for saying bad words earlier this week lol

Both are pretty degrading.

I don't do any of that but I also do not curse... like at all.

My aunt and Uncle did around their boys, who growing up never used it back at them. So even though they were around it they were still respectful to adults.
