        Why kids are swearing because of their grandparents I think kids don't use that bad word Instead of saying f*** you they would use the polite ones One way for a path screw you and try it with your best shot Second kids use some words instead of mother f***** This one these words are mother fudger and mother freaker Lastly why a kids can curse without saying bad words even parents told about using bad words is wrong In fact these children are using curse in the polite forms old english language pig latin foreign language and their older people

        I can believe swearing is good I am not use the god's name in vains but they use real life people's name in vains because of doing a christian people and some religious people did this They heard many people reacting like uh oh or aw crap are better words I heard some people try to get off like go to heck get the foul out of here go screw yourself good luck with you and have fun for one self It easy when people trust at anyone else they calling them a fictional characters and a silly words like that words The acronyms of the words using like BS means brave and strong STFU shut the feck up wtf wait that is funny or what the feck AMF all my friends and SOB son of a bratty or son of a bad people I knew my dad swearing at me he said some words go flee yourself and thanks and you can free to go that is same way to say go away My dad trying say please pipedown Well you can thanks me by stop the interruption Stop talking and even he said shush the heck up Also my dad is a good mannered parent who can use the words that is good Bullying with silly words is makes people mocks them I am just ignore them and apologies to them Swearing is a great idea for a good manners for kids and adults like

        Suggestions like "fatty" and "schizoid" are bad choices. I think the original idea here is to give good examples right? Calling people "fatty" or "schizoid" will only encourage prejudice, bullying and stigma. We tend to link curse works with bad things, the problem here is, it's not ok to put fat and schizoid people on the bad bag. Let's teach tolerance, love and acceptance. I'm sure this is far more important than not being a "potty mouth".

        What is the point of using words of exasperation that gets as close to swearing as possible? So close that a listener would have a hard time telling that you have NOT dropped the f bomb for example.

        Compromising erodes character! Over time you stop switching a few letters and just say the great naughty. Why not just say it when you get so close EVERYONE KNOWS the expression MEANS the f bomb. SCI FI channels frack and frill.

        It is INSANE to say a bad word has to end in uck to be UNEXCEPTABLE. Letters and sounds mean only what value they are given. We all know the meaning of some of the above replacements. Intent is long been convictable in law. You conspire to murder you go to jail whether or not death follows as planned.

        Do we want to teach a child it is ok to get as close to disobeying and rebelling as they can? You then allow them to foster a desire to do what is as wrong as they can get away with instead doing they best they can do.

        Like TV'S censors no longer bleep entire swear words so the word is gone they just bleep the last letter so you KNOW WHAT word was said. What's the point of it? It is like licking a turd instead of eating it is not so bad. REALLY???????

        And OMG, gosh, gee, or ANY THING that REPLACES taking the LORD'S name in vain keeps the wicked intent in the heart. Dang and darn still intends to condemn someone to eternity in tormented fire. I say cotton picking. Something is as irritating as picking cotton from the plant and getting scratched or pierced by its thorns. Cheese and rice is so obvious as a replacement of the precious name of the Savior "Jesus Christ". I have zero tolerance to blasphemy!

        Our tongue is like a gage or sensor to our soul. If we are hateful, bitter, or dishonest our words will let everyone know the darkness of our soul.

        "Well I say it like it is!" -or- "I have A RIGHT to speak freely!"

        Yes mankind affords each other great latitude to be as immoral as we can invent new laws to be. [Sexual immorality is not even considered wrong anymore. And murder is legal as long as we only kill life's most fragile beings. We call these beings, zygotes, embryos or just fetal TISSUE and sell it as a lucrative product that the womb produces. Beauty creams from our dead unborn. As morals spiral downward men create more laws to PROTECT THE RIGHTS of the criminal who has gone past societies weakening eroding boundaries. Our legal system is geared to GET THE GUILTY OFF more than to do actual justice.

        I used to have quite a foul mouth. My rationalization was, well I am an army wife so I should talk as foul as the average G.I. I hated myself and hated others so I did not care what damage my tongue did.

        Check your INTENT before you speak. Is the words at the tip of my tongue 1) helpful? 2) encouraging? 3) important to be heard? 4) pure and true?

        Pain can be expressed with OUCH! Frustration as "How FRUSTRATING"!

        If our words were so important that others desperately were in need of them we all would be telepathic. I for one am so very thankful people do not know the sludge that can run through my idle mind. It can get very YUCKY! How could we possibly like others if we knew their thoughts? So why do we speak TMI so freely and spew our thought sludge? Why do we want to objectify and discourage or down right destroy others quality of life?

        The power of Life and death our in the tongue. We can heal and help or we can so destroy that someone loathes their next breath.

        We now try to teach our children NOT TO BULLY but let them spend hours in front of bullying lessons on TV. We desensitize them to violence through media and games.

        Technology gives more opportunities to practice and perfect every harmful and destructive vice. Remember this wise phrase of truth. Garbage IN! Garbage OUT!!!!!

        I will continue to look for silly MEANINGLESS phrases to suggest to my first graders to use. GREAT HORNY TOADS! or LEAPING LIZZARDS cannot be confused with swear words. Yes I might sound like Yosemite Sam but that's OK. I do not want a child punished because they repeated something I said. And HOW DO YOU justly punish a child who is just copy what they hear? Double standards are unjust! I can cuss but you can't??

        It is the INTENT not the sounds and letters. If your intent to let the hate/uglies/vileness out and to spread your mood to infect others YOU ARE WRONG regardless of the sounds and letters used.

        It is NOT strong character to disguise poison as something less noxious. It is SRENGTH of character to DEAL WITH IT peaceably. Or even to let tears flow rather than let the filth flow. Tears are honest.

        If lusting about a woman is the same as having sex with her, and hating someone is the same as murdering him, what is it when you exclaim a "sanitized" version of a swear word to express frustration? As a Christian, I find it incredibly hypocritical that so many fellow believers stand in judgment of their brothers for uttering "taboo" words and then turn around and say things like "cheesy rice." It's puzzling.

        These are pretty hilarious. Personally, I never started swearing in the first place, but I do hiss. Pain response: ssssssssst. Tense moments in movies tend to be fffffffffff....and my typical reaction to something going wrong is "well, CRUD"

        I don't mean to be a nuisance, but I had recently looked up the definition of hobknocker, and one of it's more... inappropriate definitions is not something I would allow small children nor teenagers use.

        This list is hilarious! I say "shoot" or "sugar" and "Maple Syrup" (like Canada from Hetalia Axis Powers). Sometimes I quote the BFG (e.g. filthy fizzwiggler, flush-bunking, scrotty, bootboggler, crodwallop etc). Here are some I came up with off the top of my head:

        - Sheesh kebabs

        - Son of a Witch!

        - Dingbat - for "d***head"

        - Dingle-hopper

        - Bleep, bleep it - replaces the F-Bomb

        - Oh woe! (What On Earth)

        - Holy Fudge-nuts

        - Flipping frogs

        - Mother-Puffin - instead of 'motherf***'

        - Oh my Land! (from Wreck-It Ralph)

        - Oh bother and blow it!

        - Drat it!

        - Rat-bag

        - Wicked Witch - a 'b***' or any spiteful person

        - Fiddlesticks

        - Go fly a kite! - "go away"
