Okay I was in a thread earlier this week, where someone about took my head off, because I jokingly called my child my demon spawn. I don't say it to her face, but even if I did, she would know its in a joking manner. I have also called my oldest daughter a bitch, and you know what she did, she laughed and said takes one to know one (she is also almost 15).
I have 2 friends who call their child heathen (you 2 know who you are )
I see nothing wrong with it at all. Now if you were to call them a mother smurfing smurf or something along those lines there would be a problem. I call my baby a demon all the time. My older two always say dont wake the demon baby lol.
I am sure everyone has said something along those lines but as long that they know that you dont mean it. I am not saying is right but I also know we are not perfect and sometimes it slips out of our mouths. Now if you say it all the time just because then there is a problem.
My mom called me a bitch a lot, and it hurt. But I can totally see if the child actually knows their parent loves them and is playing. My mom however has always lacked in the caring about me department.
I have called my oldest (5) rosemary's baby in a private convo to my dad lol I think it's better than calling them actual offensive profanity. My kids have heard me curse and they tell me.it is bad and correct me so they know right from wrong but I still can't put a filter on my sailor's mouth
I call my son a turd all the time. He is only 6 months so he has no idea what i am saying lol as long as i say it with a smile he is all good lol. People just need to relax you are just joking. I see nothing wrong with it
