    My daughter used to ask for specific tracks as gifts. Painful as it was, because I'm encouraging her love of music I always listened to each one after downloading it before passing them on if suitable.

    Then she started to ask for albums by certain artists and so I vetted those. By this stage I felt a bit like GCHQ but even checking 12 tracks at a time wasn't too much effort.

    Having seen it at the petrol station she recently asked for "Now...98" for her birthday. That'd mean I'd have to check out 46 tracks before I could let her have it.

    When my daughter listens to music I am less worried about the swearing than the sexual references in music aimed at girls her age - she is 9. I would rather she listened to Public Enemy whose albums had those stickers on - because they criticised and challenged the authorities as I donít recall any swearing.

    Maybe children don't use bad language at school anymore but in my day everyone swore like a trooper. Heard far more swearing at school than from anywhere else. I think the idea that you can 'protect' your child from hearing swearing is absurd. I did notice that in general the children whose parents had an active objection to bad language used it less, so I suppose if you contextualise it for them they may refrain from using it themselves, at least in inappropriate situations. I think that is the best you can hope for myself.

    They still swear like troopers at school.

    My grand daughters have had some diablolical language for the last few years and they're only twelve and thirteen. I put it down to an extent that they are surrounded by kids from migrant families, who's parents have a poor grasp of English, so don't even know what their offspring are saying, let alone stopping it. Mind you, my daughter doesn't help, she's always swearing around her daughters. I'm the only one in the family who does not habitually use bad language.

    Bad language from kids in many cases is really their way of discovering how to express themselves as individuals. The irony being that there is nothing new under the sun in that regard. I think it is only a real problem when they swear because that’s what their parents or role models do all the time gratuitously. I think that there is a cetain elegance in being able to swear in order to reinforce a point. Problem is that very few people can do it.

    We are fairly easygoing with our kids language as we believe that making something taboo only makes them chase it more, if its not a big deal it doesn’t seem so interesting. We do have an issue with them using bad language to refer to other people.

    I remember one of my brothers literally having his mouth washed out with soap. Of course they would put you in prison for that now.
