Who Gives a Shit About Kids and Cursing?

Seems the "cursing" chapter of my book is one that a lot of people want to talk about.

This week, a freelance journalist & mum to a 2 month old baby (Lesley Carlin McElhattan) asked to interview me for an article she's hoping to publish in Cookie Magazine on the topic of kids and cursing. She'll let me know when the article comes out & I'll be sure to post it here.

And my mom, who just returned from a family gathering, said my great aunt Mollie has been taking my book "as gospel." When the cursing chapter came up during dinner one night, her oldest son remarked to her, "Don't worry mom, you don't have to start cursing now!"

I am a HUGE fan of your book. I bought it after seeing it on display in a bookshoppe in Big Bear, Calif. I am due in October and I have learned sooooo much from you and your natural mothering instincts. I had a problem with that chapter too. The way I see it, is that there are so many other more intelligent adjectives and expletives to use besides copping out and using a swear word. I think conceptually, you are right-on, but in practice, it's so much fun to be creative than to resort to words that everyone knows. But that's just me. Either way, you rock, I totally look up to you, and I hope your book becomes a parenting staple someday!
