Young kids sometimes swear because they might be testing a new word to better understand its meaning. At times swearing happens accidentally when children are learning to say words. When children swear they might also be trying to express a feeling such as frustration. Or they might simply be saying the word because it sounds funny or gets a reaction. They might also be imitating others when they swear.
