  •  Forbidding some words helps build vocabulary (0+ / 0-)

    Of course, telling kids not to swear won't stop them from swearing. But adding some limits will help them build their vocabulary.

    I might let a few go, but once I hear the same expletive more than once in a day, I tell them that's enough. One ought to encourage more creative cussing, like poo-font or clartmuncher, or maybe add some allusion like Sheisskopf. When the occasion calls for a Shakespearean insult, one can be easily obtained thus: [Thou rank elf-skinned horn-beast!].
