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.
