Hate is one word that we do not use in our house.
It is one of the words that I do not let my kids say. We also avoid words such as stupid, dumb, retard, gay, etc
Honestly, I do not mind nearly as when the kids say other inappropriate words, such as the 'f word', but that has only happened a few times, mostly because I said it when I broke a toe.
Why do we not say hate??
Hate is too strong. Hate, to me, is associated with violence. Violence in general is something I seek actively to avoid.
It may be harmless so to speak to say you hate coconut (for example)- but really do you hate coconut or do you just really really intensely dislike it. Hate is just too strong of a word to use.
What words do you not use?
