Since Parents Can't Stop Swearing, Here's Ten Alternatives Parents Use

Swearing in front of kids is a big 'no no' and parents will ask you to watch your mouth in front of their children, a new report suggests that more and more folks really don’t seem to care if you swear in front of their kids. A survey of British parents found that 20% of parents believe swearing is harmless, with two-thirds of folks saying they’ve sworn in front of their children or someone else’s. Regardless of that, 64% of parents admit they are “worried” about the language their kids use, with 40% saying they’ve heard their child swear in front of them, with "s**t" being the most common word.

Swearing is a bad habit and parents that are trying to stop have found some creative alternatives, here are the ten best.

  2. Sugar
  3. Oh muck
  4. Shitake mushrooms
  5. Mothersmucker
