Keep those words clean
It's likely your child will come across cuss words or blaspheming at school or on TV -- or they might even have a relative whose language is sometimes less than desirable. Insist that bad language is a "no-no." As kids gets older and test you a little, you might want to introduce a cussing jar -- the thought of losing their pocket money for the sake of a few naughty words might keep things at bay.
