Moms Talk: Curse Words and Potty Mouth
This weekly column focuses on discussion. We'll have one topic or question, and we'll talk.
Swear words. Curse words. Potty mouth. Whatever you call it, language is always something parents watch around their children. So, how do you deal with swear words? Do you drop f-bombs around your teens? Does the occasional s-word that rhymes with pit pop out from time to time? Do you tell your kids not to say words like "dummy" or "stupid"? How do you deal with "bad" language around the kiddies? And, if they do pick up a word that is a little more colorful than you'd like, what do you do?
Let's talk about swear words!
Chime in on this question in the comments section. Have another question? E-mail it to Ferndale Patch Editor Terry.Parris@patch.com.
Ferndale Patch will dedicate a column each week on a discussion with moms and dads about anything, really. We're looking for questions to be asked and answered, advice seekers, advice givers, sharing solutions or experiences and asking for feedback — that's what we want. Anything you want to talk about, we will discuss in the comments section.
Of course, this column doesn't work if you don't participate, so let's get it going!
We'd like to be a new resource for moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community and who may have questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, 24-hour pharmacies and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
