Do your parents use bad words?

Growing up, I basically never heard my parents use any harsh language. That I know of anyway, they had to have at some point. And I say that b/c since becoming an adult, they began to use those words a lot more commonly, especially my dad who says certain words pretty casually. I guess it's neat that they were tame about it around me as a kid?

What about you guys? How is/was your parent's profanity levels?

Growing up my dad would only use language when he was really mad. Now my dad uses some every now and then when he isn't around my younger siblings.

My dad did once in a while if my memory serves me right (I was 12 when my parents divorced so I don't remember it very well). My mother on the other hand could swear so badly she could make a sailor feel embarressed. She did this all the time. I often have to keep myself from following her example but thank God I manage this very well
All the damned time, especially my mom They're both ex-military and from what they've said that's a fairly common trait in the military anyway, so I suspect that played a huge part in that. I uh, take after them in that respect being fully honest. I think the exact curses I tend to use more differs from them a bit, but the general sailor's mouth, yeah, I definitely picked that up.

My parents were always kinda strict with bad words until I was around my mid-teens.

I'd occasionally hear my mother slip some every now and then.
My father rarely said them, specially around my step-mother because she finds them a bit too crude, but when he did it was usually in a jokingly manner or in an anger burst.

Very much a dude.
Both of my parents would occasionally use bad language. My dad moreso than my mom.

My dad, brother, and I also because of ADHD are quite emotionally impulsive, so where normal people have a filter, we don't, so it just comes out.

We're getting better, but it comes out every now and then.
