    Nun reels off list of banned curse words!!!!

    Nun reels off list of banned curse words
    Sister Kathy Avery won't put up with swearing on the playground at her school, and she's not above repeating the offending language to make sure everyone understands which words she won't tolerate.

    I thought this was way cool. Reminded me of what a woman I worked with told me about when her DD was little. You know when kids go through the phase of saying bad words.... well her DD wouldn't stop, so she had her repeat it so many times the girl got sick of it and never said them again.

    I think this is the best strategy ever.

    Even though I can think of objections from parents... I know our DD doesn't know a lot of bad words and some might shock her and actually teach her these words (not that she would use them but no more ignorance for her then). But IMO the positive effects of this far outweigh the negative.

    She banned the words stupid and boring???
    OH just give her a ruler to smack them with and be done with it.

    She sounds like a control freak to me.

    Hmm, I don't like my kids saying "stupid" and "boring" either. I don't think I'm a control freak! I don't think so anyway...

    I don't know if she is a control freak or just tierd of hearing the words stupid and boring. I know my daughter has a thing about the word dumb. Everything and everybody is dumb. I get so tierd of hearing it.

    I love it!

    Someone needs to "control" children and teach them appropriate boundries...........too many parents simply can't be bothered.

    I guess my thought on this is how do these kids know which words are appropriate and which are not if they are not told? I would guess that this was becoming a problem if she chose this method. I say good for her. It is time schools and parents stop sugar coating everything for fear of offending someone. Go Sister!

    I once said the "F" word in front of my mother at a school chorus thing. When we got home, she spiraled up a comforter on the couch to look like a nest and I had to sit in it and cluck like a chicken for a half hour while my brother got to roll around on the floor laughing at me.

    TO THIS DAY I can't say a bad word around my mother.

    Duct tape is probably the most effective, though I find strategically placed velcro works, too.

    That is so funny! I have an almost 17 yo. I have never heard her swear except to say "that girl is the B word" (that is how she says it) but, I think I would have a hard time getting her to sit on the sofa a cluck like a chicken.
