Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • My kids all know that they are grown up words and they are allowed to say them. They can when they’re older haha. I don’t swear normally, but do slip up. I think shielding them completely doesn’t help. They will hear it from friends and perhaps not know that it’s not okay. My mother blew right up at me when I was a child and asked her what the f word meant (I’d heard it somewhere and had no idea what it was) and said “Don’t you ever say that word again!!” and I never did… LOL.



  • i try not to but sometimes it slips out – I make sure my kids know its a bad word and that they aren’t supposed to say it



  • I try not to.



  • I do. Alot more accidentally now tho as my 3yr old is starting to copy things he sees on tv and i dont want him saying the f word that mum said when the dog chewed the couch up!!



  • Yep although i never used too. My girls dont swear at all.



  • I try not to swear in front of any kids, but it still does slip out. I also avoid swearing in front of the elderly



  • Children copy what they hear. So I do try not to swear in front of them.
