Subject: name calling and swearing

I am new to the list and am interested in how people feel about name-calling
and swearing. My son (5yo) attends a free school and I am sometimes
shocked by the language the kids use with each other and the staff.

My DS has embraced a lot of these words and uses them often at home and in
public. I am particularly concerned with the name-calling and swearing done
outside of the (free) school environment. Some friends, neighbors and
relatives find my DS's expanding vocabulary offensive. I am worried that
people will run the other way when the see us coming!

This is new to me and I'm not sure how to handle this. Any ideas?
