Poll: Do you swear in front of your kids?

A.  My kid's first word was motherfuckercuntface.

B.  Like a goddamn sailor.

C.  I'm really trying to cut back.

D.  I replaced swear words with other words.

E.  Never.

F.  You're horrible parents!  *clutches pearls*

Re: Poll: Do you swear in front of your kids?

  • I'm B, but trying to C.  Still pretty sure that I'll end up with A.
  • C. I'm really trying to cut back.

    I really dont want DD growing up hearing those words all the time. i know it's going to come out sometimes from dh or my mouth, but I dont want it to be a habit.

  • F...I seriously never swear and the idea of doing it in front of DS makes me feel panicky. lol
  • I'm not a big swearer, but sometimes I say things and then, "Ooops, sorry!"
  • C.  I'm really trying to cut back.

    DS knows what he's allowed to say or not.  And he loves to call us out when we cuss.  "Mom, Shit is a bad word.  You shouldn't say Shit."

  • I'm in the C range... don't know if I'll ever be able to swear using "fudge" and "shoot" so I've got to work on more creative options. 

     

  • I'm also in the C. range....but at the rate I'm going it's still about B. - so hard to quit! LOL.

    Funny thing, I used to work for Head Start as an Early Head Start Home Visitor going into clients homes and then as a Head Start teacher in the classroom setting. Never swore at work - but at home is a totally different story.

    I say shoot and heck.  Even gosh.  My husband still laughs at me for this!  haha

  • D. I'm not much of a swearer to begin with.

  • C. I don't swear often, but when I don't think about untl after I say it. I'm trying to work on it.
  • D/E.  DH and I don't swear anyway, even before kids, so we "replaced" a long time ago, if you can call it "replacing" when we never used the actual swear words to begin with...however, we do use some "replacement" words that I ALSO wish DD wouldn't say.  For example, the other day she coughed, made a face, and then told me "I have crap in my mouth."
  • D. -  DH and I both moved into the spelling phase of cutting back totally on swear words.  It's hilarious to watch DH stop and spell out "shit" when he just dropped a pan on his toe.  bwuahahahaha  So freakin hard to quit but Emily is over 2 now and repeating EVERYTHING we say so, we have no choice!

  • D. But DH is in C mode. He used to be an A or a B but he's been really working on it now that DS can talk! Still, it's hard if you stub your toe or something..or drop the laptop like I did this morning. I restrained myself from the F word at least. : )
  • I don't swear.

  • C & D.  DS is smart.  You can't even say a swear word once in a 50 word sentence of nice words because that will the the ONE word he'll repeat over and over :::sigh:::

    By the way, for you pearl clutching ladies, one of DS's first words was "beer". Stick out tongue

  • D/E  DH and I do not swear, and we have always used replacement words like crap, but I try not to use them now, however my 4 y.o. has already heard and repeated me on that one.  I also try to avoid other words like stupid, idiotic, etc...that I had been used to saying.

    Oh man, dit-to.  To the nth degree.  My BFF jokes that DD's first word is going to be shitpigasshole.
