A mother gives four reasons for avoiding usage of swear words in the company of impressionable kids.

Swear words may not be a taboo subject for you. You might be using these words as endearing terms, without thinking much about the impact of such objectionable language. But, as a parent, you must follow certain decorum when you are in the company of your young children. Remember they may be listening to the word for the first time. Or they might take to repeating it without your knowledge. Here are four reasons why you should avoid use of bad (read unparliamentary) words in front of your kids.
 

Language is a gift

Any person expresses oneself through a language. Therefore, good language is the best gift you can give to your child. See to it that he speaks a language that appeals to everyone around him. Just imagine your child being alienated at school level due to usage of bad words. Remember your family's reaction when you had first used a bad word. Your child might antagonize the peer group at the outset.
 

Indicates bad breeding

Bad words speak of a bad home culture. Although these words do not necessarily indicate the family upbringing of a child, it is quite possible that abrupt use of such words might wrongly imply bad breeding. Why do you want to give wrong signals about your family?
 

Different environments

Life is a changing phenomenon. Your child will have to interact with different types of people, in and out of India. While some may understand the psychology behind the swear words, some may take offence. So it is always better to play safe.
 

Bad management of emotions

Future generations will be highly dependent on their interaction skills for furtherance of their professional activities. Effective inter-personal communication will naturally lead to a higher success rate. Therefore, if you want your child to be successful communicator, it is advisable to check the words he uses now. What if he spoils his track record (as a group manager) only due to bad words used against his juniors. He might use such words as a medium to vent his anger and frustration. So friends this is the right time to curb your seemingly harmless habit of liberally using swear words. I have known of children telling the school principal, "Why do you stop me from using such words. My mod and dad speak the same language.''

I make it a point to avoid the use of bad words in presence of my kids. Once they leave for Orchids then I begin :)

Watch out for bad language use at home because it certainly has an impact in children.

i feel that we need to be patient with the children. this may be a passing phase. however, it is vital that the child gets a clear message that such acts of his are not welcome. a combination of reward and punishment can be used to instill desirable behaviour e.g. set up a reward for him ( a hug, a choclate, appreciation etc.) if he doesn't use any bad word thru the day. i hope it helps.
