Do you cuss in front of your children?

If not, do you get upset if others do?


I accidentally do on occassion. I try to limit it obviously, but I figure he's going to hear and see things that he knows he isn't supposed to do his entire life. It's my job to teach him what is right and wrong, and that even mommy makes mistakes. I don't mind if others do as long as it's not out of anger, or long strings of them. There's a different between stubbing your toe and saying "s*^t", and getting angry and saying "F this, F that, Mother F'er", etc. The former I can't stand to hear myself.

Ugh! I do but on accident, not really bad stuff just like damn and pissed. But still if I don't want them to say it I should set an example. For anything I don't want them to say, like frickin and shut up or anything... )= I'm naughty

I do, and I allow mine to cuss at times to. Not an every day situation for them to cuss, but they hear me cuss like a drunken sailor.

Occasionally, but I try not to. My son is the type of child to scold me when I swear

Yes. We do not censor language in my home. The kiddos know that certain words are for grown ups only and my four year old calls them "mommy and daddy words" and actually tattles on anyone else who uses them. I have never had one of my children repeat a bad word back to me. I do not get mad when someone uses cuss words in front of my children either.
