When you pay your own rent at your own place, you can then say "darn". I know it may not sound bad to you or others, but these are your mothers wishes....and like Tony says, as long as you live under Moms roof, you need to respect her wishes.
Yes. You might as well say the other word. We all know what darn means in context. Take it you have some sort of religious background. I think there are better ways to articulate yourself without using cuss words or variations. If nothing else, you'll sound more intelligent by taking these kind of words out of your vocabulary. Good luck! Sounds trivial in the grand scheme of things, but it can be beneficial for you to do as your mom says.
Tell her you have some holes in your socks and you'd like to learn to darn them. But really, she sounds very conservative. It's never a bad idea to develop a professional way of talking. At home could be your practice. Then talk how you want amongst friends.
Right or wrong she doesn't like it, but you could ask her for an alternative word to use when you are frustrated. There were some pretty funny ones years ago and I bet if you make one up it will take away some frustration. Dagnabbit or Fiddlesticks is used or you could say one that you find funny and does the trick. Like "you buckaroo you" " eat a banana" fudge" or anything you can think of and change it each time. it works get creative,
this is always cool...see, if she's legally your guardian, most suggest you must "abide in her rules"...but there is one point I see here. Your intuition: obviously, peace and not strife is to be sought after, therefore, if saying "darn" offends her subconscious, it may be best not to utilize that term
No this is completely ridiculous. I mean, there are a billion other different words that you can say that are a billion times worse...so darn is like at the very bottom of the chart..oh by the way, does it make her mad when you say "shoot" to?
Only a complete ass would suggest to an adolescent that disobeying or disrespecting a mother's wishes is acceptable. A mother produced you from her body and loved you and cared for you when you were helpless. No one could ever love a person as deeply as a parent loves their child. To think that you'd even want to be anything except a blessing to your mother is despicable.
