Swearing kids

Are kids who swear a sign of poor parenting?

1 Comment

Another factor here is whether the swearing occurs in front of the parent, or if the child makes sure they keep it clean in their parents' presence. Unless the parent is the Great and Powerful Oz, they may not know how their child acts when they aren't around. On the other hand, if the parent knows but does nothing about it, they are absolutely responsible.
