    I often say 'kid' never b!tch but sometimes 'little sh!t' it's probably worse but doesn't seem it for some reason. It isn't great but sometimes pops out.

    A friend of mine refers to her daughters as '*****es', I don't like it at all.

    I sometimes call my boys 'the kids' and I don't feel that is that bad, like I'll say to DH 'just taking the kids to the park' or something like that.

    But I was put off when the triage nurse at the emergency room referred to my son as a 'kid'. I found it really unprofessional. I think it's all about context. She said to the lady sitting next to me (after DS had suddenly come up with a rash which wasn't blanching) 'this lady wants me to see her kid first', in a very rude tone after I had interrupted her to tell her about the rash as I was very stressed about it.

    Yay! More upsides to having only one gender of child. I only have to say the 'three boys'.

    I heard this years ago. Seemed very old fashioned to me but didn't think much more of it. I just thought they were a bit of a language puriest.

    Until two weeks ago, when I saw baby goats for the first time. The term "kids" is a very appropriate word to call children! I could see many similarities between the goats and my toddler.

    b*tch is pretty awful, I would never use that. It's pretty bogan. I do however on occasion call DS1 Feral, but it's obviously in a loving, funny way bc he's still prone to the nose pick

    And I say kids all the time. Am I meant to say "my son, daughter and baby"? That would be pretty time consuming and tedious?

    I'm not a huge fan of 'kids', but I do use it sometimes, but I much prefer the use of 'children'. Because I'm not fping to say 'my daughter and sons'

    I have been known to use other words to describe my children, but only to DH or others who realise I'm doing so in a loving, yet frustrated manner. And I NEVER use those words at ANY time when they (the children) might hear me. But no, I would never be so blasé about it that I use those terms in front of anyone who wouldn't understand my intended meaning. Because that's just not cool.
