The boy is also known as my son I don’t have any fancy nicknames for him and I don’t want to put his real name out there so I don’t know what else to call him but the boy. Ok maybe I can call him Dman, ok yes we will go with that for now.
Scene: Hubs and son took a ride to get something from the store and my hubs loves to blast his music with his system in his car he looks clean cut but deep down I think he is a wanna be gansta. My son comes in the house
Dman: *singing Welcome to the world by T.I*(listen to Kanye part about the Illuminati mess)
Me: What you say
Dman: He repeats then says you say it all the time when you on the phone you always say what the eff (he actually says the word) that mean
Me: That is a bad word and I don’t want to hear you say it then your sister will start saying it. And by the way why are you all up in my conversation (normally when I talk to my friends it’s not in front of the kids so he must have been listening to me)
Dman: I don’t understand how you can say things but I can’t
Me: I am grown you are not when you get a job and get your own place you can cuss and do what ever you would like under my roof you will not repeat that word in my presence….we clear
Dman: Yes clear……..*goes back to singing the song but replaces the eff word with mess*
Conclusion: Yes I curse, I try not to do it in front of the kids but they have heard me a time or two I am sure. I can’t tell my son what not to do when I do it myself. I made sure I explained to the hubs about the situation because I don’t play the cuss word raps in my car. The hubs says he will hear it anyway so who cares…….he is right my son will hear all types of things in the real world because that’s where we live. I still don’t want to hear it in my presence. How do you deal with the bad words that kids may or may not hear?
