    Kids learn by following example, thus not swearing in front of the child is key. And that would be all fine and good if the child never left home, but they are also influenced by others when they leave home, like at school from other classmates. So the child needs to understand that swearing is unacceptable at home (punishing every instance) which will help deter the child of habitually cussing.

    Those are good inputs, but curiosity. What is everyone's role in how to teach your kid about swearing. Like if a simple "Don't say that word" To your child don't work, and it becomes more of a usage in bad manner ways, how would you go about teaching your child, going about your child when it comes to that word. Like, spanking, grounding, taking away their toys or anything that will trigger their thought.

    If a young child is using curse words, then he or she is hearing them at home. Could be parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins, etc. An older child will learn all these words from friends at school as well as movies he or she shouldn't be watching.

    We rarely use bad words around our kids. If we do, its usually under the breath, not in typical conversation.

    So no, kids shouldn't swearing, but they may hear it at home and say inappropriate things sometimes.

    It starts with the parents. When they don't swear, the kids use that as a role model. They will pick up the words from other kids, but they are less likely to use them around their parents because the parents don't swear.

    Which is to say, when you admonish, "Junior, we don't use that word around here," he knows that to be true because you don't use that word.
