Like Tyson and Paris Fury, I let my kids swear – other parents should try it

At Home With The Furys might be the most controversial reality show on Netflix right now – and not just because Boxer Tyson Fury treats his dog better than his wife.

Some viewers have been shocked by the family’s attitude towards swearing, with Tyson and wife Paris letting their six kids eff and jeff to their heart’s content.

But now, a mum who also lets her kids swear has backed the couple, saying there are ‘bigger issues to worry about’. 

Lucinda Hart, 47, also lets daughters Rafi, 10, and Aelfrida, six, say what they like – in private.

And she says other parents should follow suit, because it’s normal to swear.

Author Lucinda, from Mullion, Cornwall, said: ‘The Fury kids swearing isn’t a big deal. It’s natural, it’s normal. I don’t think ‘taboo’ language should be censored from a young age.

‘This isn’t bad parenting. If anything censoring these words from a young age could cause kids stress and anxiety – are they really that bad?

‘I always get told my girls are so lovely, kind, helpful, them swearing at home in private has made no impact on their behaviour when they leave the front door.’

Instead of swearing, parents should be worried about the explicit content their children can easily find online, she added. ‘Keeping our children safe is much more important than a few extra words in their vocabulary.’

Lucinda said her own kids know the ‘boundaries’ – which include no swearing at school.

She recalls a time her six-year-old, Aelfrida, told her to ‘f*ck off’.

‘She told me to F-off, she wasn’t in a good mood, I wasn’t bothered, it’s all natural – why does it matter?’ she asked. ‘What does matter is that your kids are kind and well-behaved.

‘There are so many things to worry about as a parent – don’t worry about the little things that when they grow older, they will be doing anyway.’

Tyson and Paris’ approach to swearing was criticised by some people on X, previously known as Twitter.

One said: ‘All that money and he can’t even teach his kids basic manners – The foul language could make grown men cry.’

Another added: ‘I turned it off halfway through episode 1 it felt like an episode of the only way is Essex, plus his kids saying the F word and constant swearing not for me.’
