I never cuss, not even a slip up even if the kids aren't around I still don't cuss, I mask words like saying oh shoot or something like that and I except all the kids to be the same way and not use any foul language. If they do I will not be a happy camper and will punish them.
My kids have heard slips from me and my family. And we have a great sense of humor about it. They catch me and I out a dollar in the swear jar and we laugh.
I'm not perfect. I'm going to slip. They know that they're not allowed to swear until they're 18. Lol. We don't say shut up or stupid or hate. I'm super strict on that
But I gotta tell ya. Words are just words. It feels reeeaaalllyy good to say F*** every now and then. I can have a potty mouth and I own it. Life is too hard to worry about my language.
You can be silly and fun and respectful and big on manners AND love the F bomb.
I have a best friend that refuses to swear and I love it. We tease each other all the time and "shut the front door" has become a well known alternative in our home and group of friends.
It's not for everyone. Lol.
