If we were to teach children what swear words mean it might prevent misusing them in the future. It's important to understand what you're saying. A lot of children I know say swear words out of impulse without understanding what they are saying. If they were taught what those words mean then it might better the community.
Okay for this debate they should what these swear words mean and what people use them for. Without this kids will eventually find out anyway and then ask questions about it and if adults don't give an answer for it then they might think nothing and start using it unknowingly. Just tell them what it means and just tell them not to use it in public because it is bad language.
It's actually important for them to be taught. Then kids know what's good and bad. DaWiseKid was talking about teaching young kids to swear. The debate didn't say that. It just said should they be taught swear words. It's not a stupid debate.
My brother was barely prevented from saying the N word when he was 8 years old. He was reading the back of a book cover and read that word aloud and asked what it mean to my mom. My mom immediately told him not to say it and he didn't.
Being taught the meaning of swear words is going to save kids a lot because living in the city there's a lot of swearing and kids hear it all the time asking what it means or using it with no meaning. It's important.
I'm tired of the people saying "Oh, there's nothing wrong with teaching 5 year olds some good ole cussing."
I hear way too many people spew nasty language day in and out 24/7.
Are you seriously going to let young kids start saying that? It's absoloutely ridiculous. I call this bad parenting and such because there are FOURTH GRADERS saying the s word, the f word, racial slurs, how in any way is that good? Oh, because it helps anger? The heck? If you're angry, calm down or do something to let it out, not be a toilet mouth.
Kids are being taught things like this anyway, that does not mean schools should embrace it. Swearing IS not great way to structure sentences or make formal points.

Dude what kind of debate is this? Why would school teach young children to swear? This is one of the dumbest debate i have seen right now. Please don't debate on things that are unnecessary and just need common sense. - - - - - - - - - -
