    Kids know all about the age of criminal responsibility and even if they are over it they also know its going to be a slap on the wrist.

    Interesting viewpoint, contextually good swearing seems to have become more of the norm these days, it seems to be more acceptable these days. Surely this fining idea is only to be used in extreme situations, otherwise it would be immpossible to enforce, with any degree of equity.
    The lady who was shocked to hear kids swearing, must lead a sheltered life as it is increasingly the case to hear kids swearing, I think it is seen some form of machoism amongst their peer group.

    I am shocked if I dont hear kids swear

    In a pub about ten years ago, I got in to swearing in mixed company because I felt uncomfortable that I wasn`t swearing.
    Mind you the language on t.v.is attrocious on some programmes

    Well done, there aren’t many of us left, my lads are 21 and 25 and I wouldn’t think of swearing in their presence, likewise my wife, or any other women for that matter.

    I have worked in heavy industry all my life where swearing is common place, why would I want to take it home with me?
