So, I have a little niece. She's almost 6 years old. Her parents will not let her watch anything that says "hell" "damn" or any other "bad word". Likewise, they don't allow people to swear around her.

My question: What the hell's the big deal? They're just words. I can see their point, but at the same time, I think it's ridiculous. When I was her age, my dad told me to yell "bad words" because he thought it was funny (no lie), and if somebody did something stupid on the road he'd tell me to flip them off and call them some choice words. It's stupid. Besides, she's gonna hear them eventually anyway, and by the time she's in her preteens she'll probably be regularly using the "bad words".

I think we censor life from our children too much. It's silly. Sure, not everyone wants their 8 year old watching Cannibal Holocaust, and I guess I can see where they're coming from with that (it's not every day that you see some guy's head get torn off and his brains devoured), but not allowing words that people use everyday to be said around your child? Stupid.

What are your thoughts, Pit?

I swear as much as possible in front of little children. True story.
Lift not the painted veil which those who live
Call life; though unreal shapes be pictured there,
And it but mimic all we would believe

I don't agree with allowing young children to watch films with swear words in them. I'm ok with words like "damn" and "hell" but I wouldn't let a 5 year old watch something with seriously bad language.

Even when they get older and I do let them watch those things, I'll never tolerate my children swearing at home.

I'm kind of torn on the subject.

At first glance, I believe that swearing kids isn't a terrible thing(I have a theory on the people who get offended, but I won't get into it). But in all honesty, I hate hearing horror stories of people babysitting and their little five-year-old brother/sister(or whatever) curses up a storm.

I think it should be handled by kids the way it's used by people who use them regularly. That is in moderation and not just for the sake of saying it.

I think it is the parent's choice. It is their kid, and they are meant to raise as they see fit. Even though I think there is nothing wrong with it.

I think as long as they're not saying a swear every 5 seconds it's fine. Like if they said damn when they're really angry or something along those lines. And as long as they know when not to say those kinds of words around certain people. Like if your parents are ok with it, then they can say it around them, but not around their 90 year old grandparents

As far as I see it, it's not so much a censorship thing but a class thing.

Imagine you see two mothers walking down the street, both with a child. One of the children is cursing while the other one is just being a normal kid.

What is your first impression of both families?

It's the way society is conditioning them.

I mean, when I was a kid, for me and my friends (which was everyone, in my old school, we all got along), our biggest concerns were pokemon, 4-square, and roller hockey at the park after school.

Now, kids are so into violence and hatred and sex... it seriously makes me sad. I know I'm a bit young to be complaining about the younger generation, but honestly, I feel like childhood innocence is dying out.

It's impossible to do that for very long.

Things like that always remind of The Catcher in the Rye when Holden gets upset upon reading the "fuck you" scribbled on one of the elementary school's walls.

YOU can "preserve" your child, but for the parents that don't, their child will destroy it.

True, and I agree the innocence will have to end eventually. But at early elementary level? No thank you. Me and my buddies didn't start swearing and talking about sex and stuff till 6th grade.

Sheltering a child too much is a bad thing, but I plan on "preserving" my child until they are at least a little older.

I used to work with kids in a daycare and the ones that swore were always the bad ones. They usually had divorced parents, and those parents were pieces of ****. It's pretty safe to say that info was a given...

Anyways, I can't stand little kids that curse. It's depressing. And when your on Xbox Live playing Halo or Gears it's the most annoying thing in the world to hear a small child cursing at you. Feel to argue liberal/anarchist perspectives but the statistics on these things are indisputable.

By "preserving" do you mean "beating"? Because I believe that is frowned upon in this day and age.

You should guide them, but you can't control what they do.

I started swearing/taking about sex at a very early age. I can't remember when, but I know it was sometime during elementary school. I didn't start swearing because of my parents(though I do recall one instance in which I did), but it was mainly due to my friends who actually went as far to poke fun at me for never swearing.

My parents couldn't do a thing about it. But, in the end, I didn't turn out to be a complete disaster.

Really? Me and my friends were saying all kinds of cuss words in English and our own language that we said was Japanese and talking about Virginas (lulz) in 3rd grade. We didn't actually know about sex and stuff til 5th, 6th, and 7th grade though.

Meh. I swore alot through my childhood (6+). Not really in front of adults (unless it was my dad, because he didn't care) though. By then I knew well enough that if I swore in front of any other family member besides my dad or my uncle I'd be in trouble.

I didn't talk about sex until like 6th or 7th grade though. I was relatively innocent sexually for a while, I got some sex jokes at the time but alot of it went over my head. Hell, when I was 10 I thought a lapdance was a girl getting on your lap and literally dancing. I didn't know how people found it erotic. I lost my sex-talk innocence when I was like... 12.

*Facepalm* Americans....

Hell, not a swear word. DAMN IS NOT A SWEAR WORD. Crap bearly passes as one anymore. You can say that in a primary school class room.

I regularly hear the word "Bitch" and "Sh*t" on TV now. Censorship is dying on Australian TV.
