So I have a topic for discussion. This is just something I've been pondering off and on for a long time. I don't know about you, but I've been around plenty of people who, when in contact with a minor child who has a potty mouth, say "He's too young to be using that kind of language," or something to that effect. After hearing it again the other day, I started thinking...
"At what age is it 'okay' for someone to use foul language?"
The whole idea is confusing to me. The word doesn't cease to be a curse word (or a dirty word) just because the person saying it is an adult. And where is the line, where it goes from being inappropriate, to appropriate? Why do people feel this way, or what do you think about it?
For the record, I do have a toddler and I do NOT plan to let her use foul language! LOL. I'm not condoning the idea that any person, any age, anywhere could/should use any language they know or choose to use. I just like hearing thoughts and ideas and opinions and having discussions about matters like these.
What do you think?
