Not an older child using a word like "bl00dy hell" but swearing at another person to tell them to f off? Yes the other thread got me thinking. That, and my taxi driver father picked up a bunch of 18 year olds who were quite abusive, and when one called him a "mother effer" he pulled over and ordered them all out, told them they have cameras on them, and to leave before his boss calls the cops. They left, swearing at him.
Personally I am disgusted at the way people think they have a right to talk to other people in that way, and not only drill it into my child, but also lead by example to show her that it's not ok to be abusive.
Yet so many people think it's ok or even funny when their kids swear, or as I put it, use language as a weapon. The words on their own are harmless, but when used against another person they can be abusive.
So how do you feel about your kids talking that way to other people?
