Do you curse in front of your parents?

I overheard my roommate talking to her dad on the phone, and she basically said "She needs to get over that shit."

I personally don't curse in front of my mom or grandma, or any family member, besides my sister.

If I did, they would probably be very disappointed and/or get mad, haha.

So, I keep peace and harmony by not cursing in front of them.

  • I don't make it a point to curse in front of my parents. and I watch what I say more than say with friends. but I also feel like I'm at an age where I can curse where appropriate... heck they curse in front of me when appropriate

  • Interesting. When i was growing up my brother taught me something that i won't forget and it just sticks with me. Once he caught me swearing on the phone with a friend. I thought he was going to tell on me or shout at me, instead he said this-

    "{myname} you are probably going to expect me to shout you, but i'm not, you are big enough to make your own decisions in life, however as a brother to a sister, why not be the same person, why do you have to change who you want to be for someone else, why hide, if you swear, fine, but be the same person regardless of who you speak too"

    And i guess it struck a chord with me and i changed to not swear and be the same person whether i address the president or my ex.

  • I do curse sometimes but it's not really a big issue in my family. My dad curses very little but my mom actually curses more than all of the other family members combined ;-). She is a psychologist but her first job originally was social worker and as such she used to work with people who are heavily addicted to hard drugs such as heroin for several years. Unsurprisingly, she unconsciously picked up a lot of these people's vocabularly and even though this has been more than 30 years ago, she still curses like an old seaman. My grandma on my dad's side also curses considerably more than I do. I think my siblings and me actually curse less than the older generations of my family.

  • Nope. My parents have a "curse as much as you like, just not in front of us" policy. I generally don't curse though. Except in rare cases, I would only curse if I'm mumbling to myself.
    Example: It was raining extremely hard today as I walked to class. I had an umbrella and still got soaked. It wan't fun. I mumbled to myself (while kind of laughing at the situation 😅) "Aww you got to be fuckin kiddin' me."

    I usually don't find a reason strong enough to curse unless I'm by myself.

  • Mine told me not to curse, so I don't. All you're parents probably told you not to curse when you were young. What I just don't get is why you still don't listen to them and curse anyways. "Oh well I want to" NO!! They told you not to, so don't!!

  • No, never ever done that. Cursing in front of parents/ family is disrespectful and rude. But then again i don't bother to curse at all in front of anyone in real life either.

    The only place i bother to curse is online. Because i feel more confident and don't care that much about it here.

  • Parents? Yes. Grandparents? No.

    Hell, my dad just showed me a music video earlier that he was really stoked about that was riddled with cuss words and he was jammin out next to me while I was watching it.

    We're a very relaxed family.
