Do You Watch What You Say In Front of Kids?

One thing that is always important to remember is that kids are always watching, listening, and taking in a lot of what’s going on around them. So do you make a specific effort to censor yourself when kids are around?

I remember when I was younger, I happened to come across a George Carlin special on HBO when my parents were out of the room. For those of us who remember the late, great, George Carlin, one thing is for sure – his comedy is definitely not kid friendly.

I remember hearing him use a specific phrase (that I will absolutely not repeat here) that I had never heard before. I yelled into the other room and asked my parents what it meant.

As you can imagine, the channel on the television was very quickly changed.

I also remember, when I was little, if my grandparents wanted to talk about something that they didn’t want the kids to hear, they wouldn’t go into another room, they wouldn’t whisper, they’d speak in Yiddish.

When kids are around but you’re not specifically talking to the kids, do you make a point to speak to other adults differently than you would without kids around? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section!
