Oh, @*%$!

For many teenagers, it's such a casual part of everyday conversation, they think nothing of it. As a parent, it's still jarring to me when I hear what used to be considered profane language used by kids!

Call me old fashioned (and I am, I know!). My children know better than to use that type of language around me.

Now, I'm not around them all the time and I don't think my teenager is an exception. In fact, know he's not. I've had to remind him of my disapproval, especially when I read some posts on his Facebook page. (Yes, he had to friend me!)

I realize our lifestyles have become more casual but is that a reason to use the word frickin' as an adjective or superlative?

Even though my husband and I have slipped and let a few choice words spill out, in our house it's still, "do as I say, not as I do!"

I tell my children certain words are adult words and, yes, "as long as you live under my roof..."

After all, I'm still the parent!
