3 Ways to Deal with Student Profanity.

1. Help Students Build a Better Vocabulary
Some individuals swear or use improper language because they feel they do not know any other words to express their uncomfortable feelings.  Help students broaden their vocabulary by encouraging them to read for 20 minutes a day.

2. Model the Use of Proper Language
Adults who swear or use poor language are only reinforcing its use with students.  Using poor language often becomes a habit.  Like most habits, swearing can be broken within 5 to 7 days of non-use. Let students know that the language they are using in school is just "practice" for when they go off to college or the work force.  

3. Establish a Profanity Free Zone
No one can swear or use foul language; not even the parent(s).  Swearing free and profanity free zones include poor language coming from media, television, radio and movies.  Song lyrics that contain foul swear words are all too common in today's teen music selections. 

Conclusion
If a student has been using curse words or other inappropriate language, it may take some time for him or her to break the habit.  Continue to remind your students of your expectations.  It doesn't take long for students to realize that part of the mutual respect is the lack of swearing. If profanity is blatant and direct, ask for an apology. Nine times out of ten, students will eventually catch themselves and self-correct.
