Is it bad to swear in front of a little kid? Will he remember it?

My girlfriend came over to my house and brough her little cousin cause he wanted to see me work on my car. I was getting frusted and said like 2 swear words. My girlfriend was with me and she got a bit mad cause i swore infront of her little cousin. I know i shouldn't swear infront of the little guy but i dont think he will remeber. We had fun together and i took him for a ride but was it a big deal i swore infront of him 2 times?

  • I got family who say the worst things in front of their kids. Things is their kids know better than to repeat them. "Do as I say, not as I do". I don't see the harm in it but I would respect a parents views on the topic and do my best to keep a clean mouth when requested

  • Respect her wishes.

    Realistically he will hear curse words in everyday life but since you are her companion you are a reflection of her. If you're flying off the roof and cursing in front of a small kid that's not a good look.

    • See the thing is kids love reaction they get from others! If you don't react than he won't care to say that word!

    • i mean it's a reactive thing when i work on cars but i didn't mean it you know

    • yeah I understand!

  • Nope.

    He's going to hear it and learn it anyways.. if he hasn't already.

  • My brother's first word ever, when he was about 1 years old, was SHIT. This was my godmother's favorite word, and she visited a lot. My parents almost never swore, and at that age, I'd have had the skin beaten off of me if I did so.

    You do the math.

    • that is true, i won't swear when he's around. I dont see her little cousin much, but when i do he always remembers me.

  • My mum swore 24/7. In contrast my dad made an express effort to avoid swearing until I was in my teens. I'm well behaved in public.

  • Kids know bad words... and know what will happen if they say them (if their parents are any good). He probably won't remember anyway.

  • I don't understand this whole fuss about not swearing in front of your kids. They are just words, stop babying your kids people.

  • If you swear then your kids will likely swear too. They'll pick it up from their friends anyway so who cares.

    You were once kids so it isn't new.
