Writing for Stellar on the weekend, Campbell admitted he’s a swearer, he likes the emotional release and the naughtiness of swearing.
He made the decision to let his oldest son swear, after Leo busted him dropping the s-bomb on stage.
“So when I swore onstage at a function for a friend’s birthday, in context, in front of my seven-year-old, I had been exposed,” he wrote.
“Busted. I mean, it was just the “S” word. Nothing serious. None of the truly offensive ones. Could I have said poo? Sure.”
After briefly trying to bribe Leo with Macca’s, the 47-year-old decided to have an honest conversation with his son about swearing.
“I told him I am fine with him swearing with his mates,” he wrote. “I mean, he is going to experiment with swear words anyway, right? We all did. We never told our parents, but we so did.”
While chatting to Leo, the dad-of-three laid down some very clever ground rules around swearing.
Leo’s allowed to swear with his friends. In fact, Campbell insists that he tries it – it’s fun and he should be able to get it out of his system.
