    I don't like the c word mainly because it's not used 'in context' as such, rather at people.

    My kids have sworn and if it's in context (drop something on their foot and say oh s***) I say something like "ouch that must have hurt but try using other words hun". If it's at someone (oh you little s***) then they get consequences.

    Yeah, I do swear, but I wouldn't say excessively. I try to tone it down around DS. Thankfully he knows which words are 'rude' and doesn't repeat them.

    I don't just drop 'f-cken' in front of words where it isn't needed. I hear blokes who talk like this and it makes me cringe! For example "yeah, we're going to the f-cken beach, taking the f-cken boat and a f-cken picnic 'n' sh-t". WHY?!!!

    I do swear more when I've been drinking. And I do drop the occasional c-bomb when I do wine time with my girlfriends

    I swear but not much. Never in front of my 4yo daughter, and very rarely in front of my parents; usually with my parents it's when I'm quoting someone one.

    One day after working with my manager for about 5 years I said something was $hit, she almost fell off her chair because she said she had never heard me swear at all lol.

    Agree with this, people get too worked up with others swearing, not like you have to listen to the swearing.

    My parents are like this, not sure if it's just that they are prudes. I wasn't allowed to swear growing up even in my teens now that I do it's awkward infront of them and unacceptable for them. I'm 37 now but feel much like a child with how I have to be careful how I talk around them.

    It's only a swear word not the end of the world, I don't care too much and swear infront of my kids, they don't swear ever.

    I say the same thing. So far so good but I'm actually dreading the day when the expletives start flying out of DDs mouth because I know that day is coming and it will be my fault

    I've realised that I swear so much in my head. I either mutter f___ under my breath or in my head countless times a day. Lol

    My nephew recently asked my mum if he can swear when he's an adult and she said yes, and he said "oh good, I can't wait to say fart"
