Yep this is what I have just started in our house. Our oldest nephew is with us a lot (he is actually planning on moving in with us) and he cusses sooooo much and so bad. He also uses a few other words that I forbid be used in our home. He and his friends all say them jokingly to each other and I can't stand it. So now any word that I deem a "bad word" means 50 cents in DS piggy bank. I will not have his first "real" word be the "f-bomb" LOL I sound so stern, but degrading words/curse words are such a waste!!! I was raised in a home that taught "people who use profanity do so because they aren't smart enough to use other words"
