It's child abuse if I don't discipline my children. Without discipline, they would move on to do more nefarious things that could result in them harming themselves.

Yes, because isn't supposed to swear and he should know better then to use that kind of language.

Side: Yes

If you have a strong opinion on swearing, it gives those words power. If you get overly upset when your child does a certain thing, it makes them more likely to do it when they're mad at you.

You need to set boundaries of course, but it's your reaction to the words that give them power.

Side: No

I will punish him/her.

Not really... besides, I'd be a hella-va lot more pissed off to learn I actually had a 16 year old kid in the first place.

Side: No

You would be an awesome dad. :)

Not likely... I hate kids. Well, not really kids, but I hate babies. They stink, they're ugly and they don't know what you're saying.

Side: No

It does kind of depend on the setting. We don't go out of our way to offend people in my family, and we are aware of our surroundings.

But usually being offended by words is a waste of time.

Side: No

what the fuck is wrong with saying fuck at that age?

Side: No

It's only a word. Kids are like that now at that age.

Why would anybody be mad if a 16 year old kid cursed as long as its with his friends its fine, but if he was cursing out strangers then i'd be mad.

Side: No

#1- He's 16 and not 5.

#2- He's with his friends.

#3- He's probably having a good time.

Side: No

Reasonable. Plus, if 3 is incorrect, the f-bomb was probably more appropriate.

Side: No

16 years old.. they're old enough to swear ...Id let them swear if they were 14 but not below that

Side: No
1 point

Not really theres worse things they could be doing!! Afterall it is a proper english word dating back to 1475

Side: No

Fuck no. I started swearing when I was 8 fucking years old. What the fuck? Just kidding. Every kid swears though.

Side: No

I'm going to say No, overall. I would probably be displeased, though not angry. If it was

Certain circumstances might change that to a yes.

If it took the form of what TV Tropes calls a Precision F Strike (as opposed to a Cluster F Bomb) I would not even be displeased.

Of course, that's me now, and my son is 3. Ask me again in 13 years- I don't expect to be the same person then that I am now.

Of course not.

I would be mad if he used them to dis-respect other people.

The word itself isn't bad, it's how you use it.

Side: No
