    Oh. I'm all out of ideas then!

    I use the actual words. This kid of mine has heard everything.

    Luckily, she understands that these words are for adults only, and has only ever tried to use a swear word once. She won't even say "hate" for fear it's a swear word. lol.

    I agree with Thermolicious.

    I don't see 'cuss words' as bad words necessarily, it's the intention behind them. I don't mind if my kids swear... I do mind if they speak aggressively or use cuss words out of context.

    I despise replacing swear words with other words (flip, blimmen, shiz)... the intention is the same, so the offence should be the same.

    I know friends who have told their children it isn't ok to swear until you're an adult. I have other who wont swear around their kids at all. As for me, I TRY not to swear but I'm not very good at it :'( I might get a swear jar an when the toddler is old enough remind that swearing is not ok, and let them witness me putting money (or my favourite "toy" in it or something) so try and show the right attitude toward it.

    I don't replace swear words. I swear like a trooper actually!

    My younger two children know that they are adult words and don't use them.

    My oldest is 17 soon and uses the S word in front of me, but not the other harsher swear words.

    I am praying that he'll eventually get sick if swearing and that this is just a stage. He starts school next year, maybe that'll sort him out??

    Agree that it just sounds awful to hear a young kid swearing. Much nicer to say "shoot" or something.

    I never heard my parents swear so I never did. Even now I wouldn't dare swear in front of them. It's a respect thing

    Dh and I are both really bad for swearing! We say the actual words... Sometimes I say pretend words. Dd has said sh!t once and says a.r.s.3. We think she thinks it's another word for nappy.
