    Sure.

    You can't be so uptight about those types of things. A lot of times, you have parents who are like, "Oh, my kid never cusses! He/she would never say such a thing." And then, when their parents aren't around, they turn into little sailors.

    And then the parents either look like hypocrites, or just stupid.

    However, heavier words like the f-word, or the c-word should not be allowed. You're the parent; the discretion is yours.

    Etiquette is the art of making others feel as comfortable as possible, by following prescribed methods of interaction.

    Your 10-year-old needs to know that when she is around those who would take offense, she should refrain from using that word. It's always best to err on the side of decorum, so perhaps she should ask those around her if it is okay before she uses it. If she is not responsible enough to do so, the word should just be off limits.

    My 10 year old son asks to go to the beach all the time, i just tell him "NO! Don't ever use that word again!"

    It's just the connotations of that word... sun, surf, sand, makes me sick!

    It's your call, but if you want your 10 year old to turn into a surf bum be my guest, biatch!

    Is it ok for you to be asking this question???

    She is 10 years old and already talking like that... I don't want to see her when she's 14 and flat out tells you to go f*** yourself!

    If he's using that word, he probably heard it right there in his own home. Teach him by example that you don't use those words.

    Not really, because some people may interpret it as the real word.

    NO it isn't. I would never allow my 10 year old to say that.

    its okay when they are turning 5 or 4 but when they are ten you need to let them know not to call someone that
