Second graders enter Swear Free Zone

Ms. Hicks second grade class at Crownhill Elementary School complete the sentence: People swear because ...

“They think it’s funny. They swear to be plain mean and they don’t care. To have fun by making people sad. They need the attention.”


“They like to because it hurts others.”


“They think it makes them cool. Also, I think people swear because it’s their favorite thing to do. Next, I think people swear because they like to be mean. Last, they swear to make people feel bad.”


“They have no other way of expressing their feelings. Also, because they want to make people feel bad about themselves. They also think it’s cool to cuss and they like too.”


“They are very mean to other people because they want to hurt their feelings or beat up people. They want to be mean to other people.”


“They think swearing with graffiti is cool. It is just rude to hurt someone’s feelings by swearing. I think it is just mean to do it to get attention.”


“They like doing it, I don’t know why. They think it’s cool but it’s not cool.”


“Probably they can’t help it. Probably because people said to try it, but I wouldn’t.”
