Well, raping chicks is taboo, so telling my child not to do it is probably just encouraging him, right?

I'll give you an example - I was in the ghetto grocery store the other day. I saw some mother swearing at all her young kids. They were swearing back at her. And these are kids around my son's age, 4, 5, 6, whatever.

They are just words, that's true. It's society that tells us they're taboo. But do you think these kids will be able to make that distinction as easily when they're in an envrionment where to use them would be detrimental to what they're trying to accomplish when they hear them everyday at home?

Proper education is the key, but to overexpose kids is ludicrous. Maybe that's silly, but that's the society we live in. Why would I teach my child something that has the posibility to hamper him in any way?

Instilling the idea that using those taboo terms in the house, or around people that will be offended by that is essential. Whether that makes it exciting for him to use those words around his friends, I don't really care that much. So he can't swear around the house and he goes out and swears all day around his buddies. As long as he's not doing it around anyone that will find that offensive, I'm probably okay with it. And by not overexposing him in the house, that will make it easier.
