Do you allow your kids to curse?

I saw this question in another group and thought I'd ask it here.

Do you allow your kids to curse?  Is there a certain age when cursing is more acceptable?

I know my 16 year old curses at school and around her friends, but the worst she says around me is "crap".  She knows that I know she curses elsewhere, but she has enough respect that she won't do it around me or her brothers or grandparents.

When she moves out.....she's free.

I know once she's a little older, she'll do things she'll think I know nothing about.

I don't allow my kids to curse. I've heard them say "heck" and "dang" but I don't like those words either. As they get older I'm sure they'll do it but it better not be in front of me or any other adult. I'm 32 and I don't even curse in front of my parents. If something does slip out, I apologize.

I don't allow my daughter to curse at all.  She's 19 and I want her to know she has to respect me above anything else.  I know she says 'BS' and 'crap' because I've heard her say it.  That's okay.  I would say the same thing around my parents.  I brought her up to respect herself and what comes out of her mouth.  Where she works there are others her age and just a few years older.  The stuff that comes out of their potty mouths makes my jaw drop.  She tells me what they say in the kitchen (she works in a restaurant) about the customers they have to deal with.  I'm SO glad that she shows more demeaner and respect for the restaurant in which she works.  The manager isn't that far away and hears everything.

Nope.  I don't do it and I expect the same from my child or anybody in my house for that matter.

Same here!  I mean, I'll say ass and crap around my mom (and I'm 43!) but never anything worse.  It definitely boils down to respect in my opinion.

Sounds like you're doing a good job with her.

I don't allow my kids to curse. I'm sure my 12 year old does when he's around his friends, but he tells me he doesn't (yeah right). At 39, I don't curse in front of my parents out of respect and I expect the same from my boys.
