Have you ever caught your self swearing in front of your children? I'm sure I've done it once or twice in my boys 4 years.
54% of parents revealed that their child has cursed in their presence. The survey found while more than three-quarters explained that it was a 'bad' word, ten percent of parents laughed after hearing their children swear. How would you react??
The surveyed parents felt this increase in curing came from many sources: 39% of parents blame other children, either from day care, a playgroup or older siblings. 34% blame television, games and movies, and nearly 24% blame themselves or their spouses.
