What is Parents Day?

Parents Day has officially been a national holiday since 1994, and is all about family (no matter what faith or background you come from). You can even nominate your parents to win Parents of the Year! Parents Day is meant to show your appreciation for your parents and all the hard work they do in your family and in your community.

There really is not really an age for cursing. You just got to be at the right place. However, most places have banned cursing to attempt to prevent drama and other appropriate things from happening with the younger demographic but if you been in school you probably know young kids cuss anyways. Heck, when I was in elementary kids were cussing from left and right. There is a place to cuss and a place not to cuss. There are people to cuss infront of and people not to cuss infront of.
