I absolutely curse in front of my kids (teens), and I don't mind if they do it in front of me as long as they are using those words properly for emphasis. I don't allow them to just nonchalantly drop the f bomb, and they know they can't do it in front of other adults.

When they curse, I know they're REALLY upset about something.

honestly, I think this is the way to do it. My old man would only get on my case about it when I was getting a little too sailor-like. Made sure I only used profanity when I really meant it.
