You Said What? When Children Swear, Does It Really Matter?
O'Connor, James V.
Our Children, v25 n7 p12 Apr-May 2000
Four suggestions for helping children break the habit of swearing include: realize that swearing is a problem, and it reflects negatively on an individual's character, maturity, intelligence, and respect for others; explain why some words are not acceptable, whether everyone uses them or not; teach children to cope with their emotions in other ways than swearing; and lead by example.
