My kids and I say "sucks" a lot too and I never thought it was a swear word (I've always wondered who determines which words are swear words???) However, one of my daughter's teachers at school told her class that they weren't allowed to say that word so I guess many people do consider it a swear word. I'm willing to bet if this teacher ever got adhesions she would find herself using the term too though!! LOL! The only thing I am real adament about NOT saying and never allowed my children to say, is to take God's name in vain. It amazes me how many times people say "My God" as an everyday exclamation.
