Your child using a cuss word
DD uttered her very first cuss while on vacation. She was getting out of the pool and looked for her towel, which she didn't find, and said "What in the H*E*L*L". Oh dude. Instant conflict in my head. Doesn't matter where she heard it because it's not like I can shield her little virgin ears to every bad word out there but now I don't think I necessarily handled it right. I took her aside and very sternly but calmly said that was a bad word and that I didn't ever want to hear her say bad words.
Opinions on best handling? What do we think about swearing in front of children? I don't do it, personally. My brother, on the other hand, does use some profanity around his kids - not in anger but in conversation, KWIM? I don't think it's necessary, but is it wise to start throwing it around in front of the kids? They hear it at school and just about every place else.
