    Name - friendly and familiar
    Daughter - familiar
    Kid - impersonal

    I can say that I am not one to cringe at bad language but that is a big no no for me.

    No. Not uptight.

    I don't have daughters but there is no way I'd ever use that language if I did.

    Totally inappropriate.

    Because technically a "kid" is a immature goat.
    As is the term b!tch is a female dog.

    no. I think it's rough as.

    i started a thread last week about swearing at kids. many hubbers expressed the view that any kind of swearing at a child is not on.

    I class calling your little girl a "*****" in the same category. actually it feels worse in some ways. like its directly derogatory and feels way more insulting.

    I never ever heard someone referred as their own child as a b1tch.

    And if someone referred to my DD as such they would be shown the foo after a stern talk.

    Someone we know calls his 2 year old son a c*nt. Its so disgusting, he calls everyone a c*nt so its not just his son, but you would think he would refrain from saying it to his child. I would never say such awful things to or abouy my children.

    Like other PPs I'm pretty laid back when it comes to swearing, not much offends me, but I'd be horrified to hear someone call their little girl a b****.

    I totally get sometimes children drive you up the wall, I've referred to DD as a little sh*t or a pain in the a$$ (not to her face, when complaining to DH after she's gone to bed) but I'd never call her a b****, something about that seems so wrong.

    Also to the PP whose MIL referred to her DD as a b****, OMG! I can't believe you didn't throttle her, you're a better woman than I am

    I definitely think it's wrong and never warranted. I'll never forget the time a friend said that she loved her DD, "but god she's a b****!" She said this in front of her DD, and her DD was 2 at the time. I was in shock. Another friend pulled her up straight away. I don't think you're in the minority OP.

    My friend is a school teacher and she said once that she would never refer to her students as "kids", they aren't goats, they are children. Ever since then I have never been able to call my children "kids".

    As for b*tch, I can't ever imagine a reason I would ever refer to my child as one. Pretty revolting!
