    Potty Mouth Kids Have Higher IQs

    Potty Mouth Kids Have Higher IQs

    A recent study found that children who use swear words to communicate their feelings actually have higher IQs than kids who refrain. "Kids who swear are highly expressive, more assertive, and extremely capable of defending themselves against bullies," declares study author Dr. Lucinda Streets. "Sometimes a good old f-bomb does more to tell the story of being five, than all those Dr. Seuss books put together," adds Dr. Streets.

    Parents spend a lot of time worrying about swearing in front of their children. Maybe all that energy could be better spent applying for preschools and signing the kids up for cello lessons. Besides, parents are always lectured about "speaking their kid's language."
    Isn't it high time they start speaking ours? Damn!

    That would put me a few IQ points above Einstein then. I told my friend's father when I was 3 years old to "go fuck yourself" when he told me Ryan couldn't play. We all got a few laughs out of that one at his wedding.

    My father had a potty mouth....

    Same. But by the time I was a teenager I knew when and when not to use my foul mouth. By then it was just my attitude that kept me in trouble.

    my kids even from a very young age had an innate sense of where to swear n where not to. until tess was in hs i never heard of her swearing at school once.

    maybe too many parents bought into the whole thing of the shrinks saying ozzey's family was healthy even with the colorful language because they communicate what they think, and more importantly what they feel. but it makes sense to me.

    we, my brothers and i, were taught that a lot of things were inappropriate to say, or to even talk about. i'd rather deal with the fall out of the scorn i get from people hearing my kids swear than deal with what my mom had to. my brother was molested when he was 10, he suffered in silence for years and had no idea how to end it or get help because some things just weren't to be mentioned. i'm sure i've done a lot of parenting against the grain of the norm but i grew up with my brother and several little girls that were getting molested and not one of them told because talking about privates or saying "bad" things was unacceptable.

    Same here. I have always did what I wanted to do despite the consequences. I learned from every mistake, and I like to believe that I am wise for my age just from fucking up so much.

    I also know when to and when not to drop verbal bombs, but every now and then one slips. About a year ago I was giving a presentation to my classmates and professor. It was a demo of a piece of software I designed. When I wrote the code, I was running out of ideas for error messages, so I just made it say "fuck" when it threw an exception. I meant to go back and give it a real error message but I forgot. I was giving a walk though of the software when an error occurred and "Fuck!" popped up on the screen and my software froze up, I couldn't get it do do anything so as a last resort I jerked the overhead projector plug out of my laptop to make the screen go away.

    My classmates were cracking up, but my professor wasn't amused. She gave me a D on the presentation.

    i was posting the article when the thread got closed. i think it's interesting even aside from everything else. parents generally don't do parenting with their eyes or minds closed, hopefully. you might not like how a person parents but there usually more behind it than meets the eye. or in this case ears.

    It sucks that you got a D on the presentation, but that's pretty funny.

    I'm the same as you in regards to my shitty attitude changing me for the better as an adult. When my father passed in '95 I went on a rampage. I was 15 years old and I was completely out of control. My poor mother just couldn't control me. Then when she passed in '98 I was still in the height of my fuck-up years. Seeing how life can throw shit at you like that I decided from that day on that I needed to seriously revamp the way I went about things because one, mommy wasn't there to bail me out of trouble anymore and two, you never know if one of those horrible things that comes out of your mouth will be the last thing that you ever get to say to someone.

    When your child rearing belief structure is found to be an April Fools Joke, is it time to have a 45th trimester abortion and start over?

    seriously, if you do the research there's a lot of support for being realistic about the age we live in. telling me n my brothers not to swear never stopped us. did it stop you? or were you just careful to not do it around your parents? even if you disallow swearing at home kids go to school and discuss the latest south park, which i loathe btw, n sing "uncle fucker". if you think your little church mouse kids act the same way behind your back as they do in front of your face about swearing chances are you're wrong. ty is not allowed to swear around his friends out of respect for most parents not allowing it. but time after time he will tell me this or that one "swears like a pirate" or told him about their dad's porn. or so n so's dad is cheating on his mom... or so n so's mom is a drunk.

    Should Children Be Allowed to Use Profanity at Home? - Associated Content

    some child psychologists recommend a free hour a day where a kid can say whatever they want, some say ignore it and it will go away, some ask point blank "in what world would they not ever hear those words?"

    i know adults that say "fudge" when they mean "fuck" and frankly i think it sounds pollyanna and creepy.

    we live in an age where other little boys tell my son about facials but their parent's have superior parenting skills because their little angel doesn't swear within earshot? riiigght.
