    Why cant adults swear in front of kids..?

    Personally, I think its because we have to set a good example in everything!

    So, why is it so bad when an adult is caught swearing in front of a child. Some people make it a BIG issue, almost the same as abusing a child and then say "You are not fit to be a parent".

    I can pretty much count off about a thousand things that would be more important than not swearing in front of kids who are probably swearing when you have your back to them.

    In the grand list of human behaviors that concern me, torture and genocide are near the top. Swearing in front of children ranks nearly last, right above men wearing ladies' undies in their bedrooms.

    I generally believe swearing is not a good thing.

    There are two or three 10 year old kids who regularly swear in my sons class, The only reason they do it is because their parents swear in front of them ,Nice,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    But everyone swears eventually.. its part of life..

    Kids should not swear back at adults is the thing to be taught.

    i agree as we dont swear at all but one of my children does now as he is 15 he thinks its ok. i dont though . so i think it does'nt matter really if you do or dont swear in front of them if they want to they will eventually

    ^^^^^ This :giggle:

    If I ever slip a swear word out in front of mine ( usually in temper), I always tell em that they are NOT to repeat it and its "adult" talk..............they are teens now and I have only heard them swear occasionally when on their Xboxes, I always tell them off and they apologise.
    Constant swearing as part of a general conversation in front of young childrenis out of order, Im talking the F and C words here. I remember the first time I said "bloody" in front of my mum.......I was about 17 and it felt so wrong

    I have no doubt they swear when out with friends, but I would like to think that it wasnt in earshot of an adult

    Or they don't - you left that bit out.

    Anyways, words only have any meaning or 'power' because we as society give them it.

    If we ringfence words and say they're 'restricted' or 'naughty' then they remain taboo. If you actually object to swearing then you should encourage their use until they become as weak as some of the opinions expressed on here.

    Personally, I don't think you can beat a nice f-bomb sprinkled amongst one's verbiage.

    OP you are making a big issue out of this - where on earth have u read or heard that swearing in front of your child is almost the same as abusing them and "you are not fit to be a parent" what a load of tosh.

    I dont swear in front of my son but have let the odd one slip - I have an Irish friend who swears all the time but av never heard their kids swear..

    Agree absolutely. I swore in front of my kids when they were younger ( occasionally!) but they never swore in front of me, or anyone else for that matter. They do now, but at 31, 28 and 24 I figure it's ok!

    That's more than enough time wasted on the troll. Got to finish some work in the extension so the real wood flooring can get laid on Thursday, in time for Xmas.

    I am sure most of use swear now and then particularly when annoyed but in all honesty would you want children swearing. If i knew a child constantly swore he would not be invited to our house as he would influence my own children and i think this is what most adults would think. That means that the swearers will only ever have a small number of probably quite rough friends and never really get the chances in life they could have.
    I have sworn occasionally in front of the kids and always regretted it.
    The truth is the kids that swear are the same ones that hang around street corners, pinch and damage things and have no respect for anything.
    I know kids will all swear at some stage, my 13 year old swore a few weeks ago and as soon as i said excuse me...he looked in horror and apologised. Yes i know he must use those words at the park and school etc but at least he realises that it is not acceptable in front of adults and at home or other peoples homes.

    You don't even drive, let alone own a BMW. (And I don't drive a Kia - for about the 20th time.)

    I'm sure when I was 16, my memory was much better than yours!

    Anyway..... have fun....... Got things to do and people to see.
