Quoting JiLLiAN.:" why? you are an adult. you can do things he can't. i don't think you should get drunk in front of your kids or anything, but i couldn't imagine sensoring myself THAT much."


Because I don't want him wanting to do it...I smoke weed too but i'm not going to do that in front of my son, and I'd rather him smoke weed than drink when he's older so why drink in front of him???
I also don't eat cookies or drink soda in front of him because then he wants some and it's not fair. My parents were the same way and I like it.
If I swear in front of my son I'm not going to punish him for doing it.

I have a potty mouth. I'm working on it but none the less she hears them & she occasionally says them in the correct ways yet I don't laugh or encourage it. I try to let her know that she should use that word.

He's a good kid, and after school if he wants to go to his room and talk to himself about how "miserably f**king long" it was, that's fine. He gets it out of his system. We haven't had a problem with him swearing accidentally or at school or in front of grandma, so it seems to be working.

My son has sworn in front of my mom lol it's pretty funny to me. I've never heard about it at daycare though so idk if he doesn't do it or they just don't care.
He does like to tell me all about how he got "bitched at" by his daycare teachers too :)

No I would not let them, they have said bad words and after telling them enough times that they can not use those bad words they now tell you if you us them that "hey that's a bad word".

DS said "Hell no!" Repeating me and my SIl talking about teen mom (go figure) and I stopped talking and said baby we don't say that. He's 2 and doesn't really understand so now we watch what we say very carefully around him. It's just words, but I would be very embarrassed if we were in church and DS just yelled out some random curse word.

Ha ha! It snowed a tiny bit a couple years ago and he busted out "holy shit! It's snowing!" And, it WAS well warranted, lol.

No. We don't cuss. my kids get nervous looks on their faces when they hear other people do it. They will ask me why people use that language. I have friends who think its cute, or funny. I think it shows poor parenting, cause that means that you have sowrn enough around your kids, that they think it's normal talk.

I am definitely NOT a bad parent but way to judge off a little thing like language :)

I have to agree, it does show poor parenting.

Okayyyy :roll:
I think it shows bad judgement overall if you are going to call someone a bad parent without knowing anything about them or the way they parent.

Poor=bad. I am not a poor parent nor do I practice poor parenting. I do everything for my son you're possible supposed to do. He is extremely happy, smart, and well taken care of.
And YES I let him swear. I don't encourage it OR discourage it. They are just words, simple as that.

Well, I also think it's bad parenting to allow your child to say valgure words. It's your job as the parent to teach right or wrong. Does he say them in public?
