According to Science, Teaching Kids Swear Words Is Actually A Good Thing

Every parent knows that teaching their kids swearwords is not a desirable thing. Of course, sometimes swearwords inevitably slip out in front of kids and the parent’s reaction tends to be one of embarrassment. Hopefully, the kid won’t notice and pick up the word and teach the rest of the kindergarten children.

Science recently uncovered that teaching swearwords to kids might be a good thing and can have a positive impact. The science behind it is explained in the book entitled “Swearing is Good for You: The Amazing Science of Bad Language” by neurologist Dr. Emma Byrne.

She advocates that teaching children bad words and the context in which they are used, can also have benefits as they will learn the word’s true meaning. This way they won’t be using it just to shock adults, as they will understand when they are inappropriate to use and what should be the acceptable context.
According to Byrne, the child will have a better understanding of the word and will be able to decide when to use it. The most important thing is that they will also learn what impact can such a word have on their surroundings and the emotions of others, and they will have more autonomy in their decisions.

An excerpt from the description of her book reads:

“We’re often told that swearing is outrageous or even offensive, that it’s a sign of a stunted vocabulary or a limited intellect. Dictionaries have traditionally omitted it and parents forbid it. But the latest research by neuroscientists, psychologists, sociologists, and others has revealed that swear words, curses, and oaths, when used judiciously, can have surprising benefits.”
